You're browsing the 2014 Summit site. Check out what we're doing this year.
This track provides overview and deep dive sessions that cover the products, features, and technologies for datacenter modernization and consolidation. Example topics include: storage migration, performance optimization, management of data in distributed applications, and middleware integration. Attendees will learn how to enable lines of business to rapidly respond to business events in an automated manner, automate rules-driven business processes, and integrate applications, data, and embedded devices across all cloud environments.
What do back office applications, apps deployed in the cloud, apps deployed in remote branches or embedded devices, and data spread across multiple sources all have in common? Sooner or later, they all have to talk to each other. That’s where integration middleware comes in.
In this session, we’ll look into the roadmaps for the Red Hat JBoss Middleware integration solutions, including Red Hat JBoss Fuse, Red Hat JBoss A-MQ, Red Hat JBoss Fuse Service Works, and Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization.
