Session Details

The Impact of Big Data and Cloud on Data Connectivity

Who: Jaime Meritt, director, product management, Progress Software and Jesse Davis, director, DataDirect research and development, Progress Software

What: This session will look at how companies can regain control of their data and get a complete view of critical information, while still reaping the many benefits that SaaS has to offer. The explosion in Software as a Service has changed the world of data access dramatically. Business critical information that was once within the four walls of the organization is now locked in a variety of SaaS applications deployed on the public Internet. This presents a serious challenge to business decision-makers who are driven to make the right choices for their organizations based on a now incomplete picture of the world.

Where: General Session Room - Ballroom A-H

When: Tuesday, November 6, 2012, 9:55am-10:40am

Cloud Applications: Some Assembly Required

Who: Dr. John Bates, CTO, Progress Software

What: This session will present 10 imperatives for constructing next generation applications that have been defined based on research findings from a community of 1500 application building companies. Emerging applications will not just be cloud-enabled, but also mobile, connected to social media networks and able to consume and respond in real-time to patterns in big data. Most importantly, application building must become more productive with a reduced time-to-market. To meet these demands there is an imperative to move from a model of "build everything" to a model of "application assembly" from available customizable parts.

Where: General Session Room - Ballroom A-H

When: Wednesday, November 7, 2012, 9:05am-9:50am
