MEAP, schMEAP. Who’s got you covered in mobile?

Jay Balunas — Mobile platform architect, Red Hat
Steve O'Keefe — Principal product marketing manager, Red Hat
Burr Sutter — Product management director, Developer Products, Red Hat

As mobile continues to revolutionize client development, application platforms need to include mobile-specific technologies like push notifications, offline support, and data synchronization. But the idea that you need completely new technologies such as a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) is misguided. Developers need to update existing platforms to include capabilities, tools, and techniques to meet the mobile challenge.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Explore some of the latest trends in mobile development for the enterprise.
  • Learn about the capabilities Red Hat has developed to help you go mobile quickly and sensibly.
  • Hear the latest about our cloud-based push server, data encryption, and tooling that make it easier for you to choose from mobile, web, native, and hybrid development.

We’ll discuss the Red Hat projects and technologies that make this possible, including AeroGear, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, and OpenShift by Red Hat. And you’ll hear how our plans for mobile in 2014 will help you mobilize your modern middleware.

Mobile push in the enterprise

Matthias Wessendorf — Principal software engineer, Red Hat

Interaction is important to a successful mobile application. Push notifications, a key feature of every mobile operating system, allow you to quickly reach your mobile users. In this session, we’ll discuss why implementing push notifications for several mobile platforms—each with its own proprietary API—can be easier than you might think possible.

The AeroGear UnifiedPush Server is an open source solution that provides a unified API for mobile operating systems, like iOS, Android, and Firefox OS. Join us to learn how to integrate it into your business applications, hosted in the cloud or inside your own datacenter, to send personalized or generic push notifications to your users.
