Enterprises are increasingly going mobile and Genentech, one of the top innovators in this space, embraced mobility and focused on an iOS platform since its inception. Genentech has since created mobile applications in a variety of domains, including those for commercial, enterprises, and human resources.
In this session, attendees will learn how Genentech became mobile-ready with its use of Red Hat JBoss Data Services Platform. Genentech’s Mani Subramanyam and Red Hat’s Udaypal Aarkoti will discuss the implementation and explain how Genentech was able to easily digest vast amounts of information through the use of virtual databases and physical databases consisting of RBDMS, cloud storage, FileMaker, LDAP, and others.

Java EE 8 will likely aim to bring Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) providers and application developers together so that portable applications can be deployed on any cloud infrastructure, therefore reaping all of its benefits in terms of scalability, elasticity, and multitenance. And in the lifetime of Java EE 8, we will see an emphasis on the modularization of the underlying Java SE platform. Java EE will also include updates for HTML5, caching, NoSQL, Ployglot programming, MapReduce, JSON, REST, and improvements to existing core APIs.
In this session, attendees will gain insight into the future of the Java EE platform, starting with Java EE 7.

This can be a good boom, or a bad boom. What determines the outcome may be trickier than you think, and enterprises today are burdened (or blessed) with new requirements for their developers and their infrastructures.
In this session, attendees will explore the latest in enterprise mobile development. They will learn how to plan ahead and minimize risk. The discussion will cover options for applications and infrastructures, such as on-premise or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), mobile, web, hybrid, and native, and even integration options for existing services.
Jay Balunas will discuss the Red Hat offerings (e.g., OpenShift by Red Hat, JBoss Developer Studio, etc.) and JBoss Community projects (e.g., AeroGear, Forge, JBoss Application Server, etc.) that can help make mobile development explode (in the good way). He will also walk attendees through a typical enterprise application, discussing backend functionality (that can be accessed across many clients) and host requirements on JBoss Application Server and OpenShift by Red Hat.
And on the client side, attendees will explore AeroGear and its SDKs for iOS, Android, Cordova, and web-based mobile applications.

This track covers the changing concepts and implications of moving workloads to the cloud. Example topics include: data migration, consumption models, operational approaches, and management frameworks. Attendees will gain insight into cloud-readiness for their IT infrastructures and businesses, and learn how to maintain control, security, and compliance when moving to hybrid cloud operational models.
OpenShift Online, Red Hat’s hosted PaaS offering, continues to grow along with the applications it supports, which are growing more sophisticated and demanding additional resources. In this session, Mike McGrath will detail what it takes to manage an environment like this and help connect the dots between Red Hat’s public OpenShift Online offering and its private, on-premise offering, OpenShift Enterprise.
In addition, Mike will discuss how to create a successful hybrid model between a private enterprise with traditional computing resources and a public PaaS. He will explain how to utilize both environments securely as demand requires it or as a transition is required from private hosting to public hosting.
Specifically, Mike will discuss:

Many of today’s enterprises are working under the false assumption that there is a trade off between consumer-centric file sharing and corporate IT policy compliance. This assumption is common because market-leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for file syncing and sharing are not designed around enterprise IT needs. They represent growing risks with vendor lock-in, data security, compliance, and data ownership.
Fortunately, by leveraging innovative open source solutions from Red Hat and ownCloud, enterprises can provide a simple-to-use file syncing and sharing solution for employees. And this solution enables enterprises to have greater control over valuable intellectual property.
In this session, representatives from Vizuri, ownCloud, and Red Hat will:
Vizuri will demonstrate a hybrid cloud file-sync and share SaaS solution, designed using OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, ownCloud, and Red Hat Storage Server, that delivers an integrated mobile, desktop, and web-based solution.

Come back for round two of the popular (and always fun) rich client smack down! Some of our well-known contenders are back: HTML5/JDF, RichFaces/JSF, and Errai/GWT. But this year, we’re bringing in a few more contenders like Cordova, iOS, and Android with AeroGear. We’re also opening the field to any that want to throw their hats in the ring.
In this session, industry experts from Red Hat, W3C, and the community will show why their technologies are the present and future of mobile and rich client applications. They will discuss high-level concerns like trends in client technology frameworks and core enterprise concerns like security, off-line support, and data synchronization.
This is not a sit-and-listen kind of session. At the beginning of the session, sign up for a five-minute slot to push your own favorite choice. We want to hear from you, so come with your questions and comments about directions, best practices, what you have struggled with, etc. We’ll also be polling the audience and will have some special treats for those attending.
