Come and enjoy this eye-opening presentation where you will learn how a workplace innovation platform can help capture data and get it into the hands of users via powerful rapid application development tools that enable you to quickly create and deploy custom interactive apps for mobile, web and desktop that give users access to existing SQL data sets.

These tools that combine data, logic and UI layers are quickly becoming a key component of IT initiatives to accelerate application development and delivery of enterprise and departmental data. You will also learn how Workplace Innovation Platforms can help you fill the gap between appliance apps and enterprise systems.
