Building Cloud-based Cross-Platform Mobile WEB Apps
Speaker: James Pearce, Sencha
The web is always evolving, but we're witnessing a significant architectural shift as services migrate to the cloud, business logic moves to ever-thicker clients, and the web escapes the desktop to become a beautifully mobile medium.
Mobile App Automated Testing in the Cloud
Speaker: Josh Galde & Chris Karnacki, DevicesAnywhere
While a good number of consumer mobile applications having tapped into the cloud, so far, only a handful of enterprise mobile applications have done the same with any success. However, Juniper Research has predicted that the number of enterprise customers using mobile cloud-based applications will rise to more than 130 million by 2014.
As cloud providers are increasingly opening up their APIs to developers, an opportunity is emerging for companies to reduce the costs associated with porting apps across multiple platforms. This approach is both attractive for developers and enterprises alike: developers get a wider potential audience, whereas enterprise customers reduce costs and get more flexibility by outsourcing application management on a scalable, pay-per-use basis.
Security is a challenge associated with cloud computing across all connected devices; however both developers and enterprise customers need to take into consideration the mobile factor. For example, how do you ensure quality of service coverage & capacity for multimedia services in a fluctuating signal environment? How to deploy software across a multitude of heterogeneous devices with different capabilities? How does the IT department manage a network with assets that are not visible and ensure problems in the field do not occur?
Josh is the Senior Marketing Manager at DeviceAnywhere and has been with the company for over 3 years. Chris is a Technical Account Manager at DeviceAnywhere and has been with the company for almost a year. Both are experts on DeviceAnywhere’s product Test Automation for Smart Devices. They have extensive experience providing support for some of the largest organizations using DeviceAnywhere’s Test Automation product.
