Gain Peace of Mind - Use Hybrid Cloud to Modernize Your Storage Strategy Marc Farley, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft Data generation and storage is rapidly accelerating and is expected to grow 44x in the next few years .Strict regulations and compliance combined with the need to mine this data to gain competitive advantage make it mandatory for enterprises to store this data for longer periods of time. To deal with this data explosion, enterprises are switching to a hybrid cloud storage model - a trend that is predicted to accelerate so fast that by 2020 over a third of the world's data is stored and passes through the cloud. Microsoft's hybrid cloud storage solution enables enterprise customers to integrate Microsoft Azure Storage with their data center.
This session will take you through the importance of the StorSimple solution to the hybrid cloud offering and discuss the building blocks you can use to solve data growth problems and cost constraints, as you consider moving your data storage to the public cloud. The final portion provides a future vision for hybrid cloud storage (HCS) with StorSimple and Azure.
Mobile Apps in the Enterprise: Harness the Power for Customers & Employees Miranda Luna, Product Manager on the Windows Azure team at Microsoft Mobile apps are becoming increasingly important in the enterprise. Traditional web apps cannot match the increased levels of engagement and retention achieved through a personalized and responsive experience on each user's favorite device. To build a cross-platform mobile app capable of delivering a truly personalized and responsive experience, however, you need to effectively utilize a cloud-connected app back end that is built to enhance security, scale and speed of development.
This session will cover the different aspects of robust mobile application strategy and the enabling technologies offered by Microsoft Azure. Miranda Luna will demonstrate how to use Microsoft Azure to implement mobile engagement strategy end to end, from net new apps to apps that need to leverage on-premises assets, to existing apps that could benefit from enhanced push notifications.
