Using the Cloud to Enable the Next Generation of Mobile Enterprise Applications
As outsourcing software development company we are attended at Tellago’s Webinar “Using the Cloud to Enable the Next Generation of Mobile Enterprise Applications“. This suppose to be one of the most popular ASP.NET author’s Webinar.
The Webinar is scheduled on Wednesday, January 11, 9:00PM – 10:00PM Kiev time.
“The ability of building mobile applications that surface business capabilities is at the top of the list of most CIOs. However, a true enterprise mobility experience requires capabilities such as AD authentication, secure data sharing, application provisioning, device management, analytics and many others infrastructure elements that will make you mobile applications enterprise ready”, wrote Jesus Rodriguez on his weblog.
Enterprise mobility is on top of the priority list of most organizations nowadays. However, the dream of the mobile enterprise is permeated with challenges in areas such as identity, device management, application management, and data sharing among many others. In recent years, the evolution of cloud infrastructures has become an ideal vehicle to address most of these challenges and enable the next generation of mobile applications in the enterprise.
Microsoft’s C# language appears set to overtake C++ in regard to its popularity with developers
Tiobe survey has C# nipping at C++’s heels in popularity, but C++ holds edge in growing mobile development field. SoftElegance as software development company with the primary .NET Framework skills has C# as the main programming language.
In a release this week of the Tiobe Programming Community Index, which gauges the popularity of different languages, C# was ranked fourth, used by 8.205 percent of developers, barely behind C++, used by 8.252 percent. C++ has been consistently ranked third in the index since 2001.
Throwing up a potential roadblock to C#’s rise is that C++ offers better performance and thus is better for mobile applications, said Paul Jansen, Tiobe managing director. “If you look at the current trends, C# will surpass C++ in the next couple of months. But there might be a chance that C++ is strong enough to stay atop of C# because it is better for mobile application development.”
Inventory Logistic Management Using GPS/Wireless System at APICS Chapter
SoftElegance has submitted the presentation “Inventory Logistic Management Using GPS/Wireless System” at Houston Chapter of Association for Operations Management. The October’s session of APICS started with SoftElegance’s USA presentation.
“Many companies use traditional process to track inventory and provide project status updates. Over the years those traditional methods have proven to be inefficient, costly, and time consuming for yard and shop employees. Without a reliable way to track how many moves are made around the yard in a given day, many organizations lose money because they cannot determinate the optimal number of employees and forklifts required for route optimization”, says official APICS Pressrelease.
Microsoft plans to bring ‘big data’ analysis by integrating Hadoop into Windows and SQL Server
This week Microsoft announced collaboration with Yahoo Hortonworks to develop a Apache Hadoop implementation for Windows Server, SQL Server 12, and Windows Azure platforms.
Hadoop is an open source platform for big data analysis and working with unstructured data. It also works on clusters of computers or servers. The preview of Hadoop-based service for Windows Azure will be available by the end of 2011, and the Server’s Hadoop implementation will work with the existing BI tools.
“Microsoft’s strategy is to groom Linux-friendlier Hadoop to fit snugly into Windows environments, thus giving organizations on-tap, seamless, and simultaneous access to both structured and unstructured data via familiar desktop apps, such as Excel, as well as BI tools such as Microsoft PowerPivot”, said Ted Samson, InfoWorld’s senior analyst.
How it was at Mobilize, the GigaOM event, or what is BYOT
One of the most discussed topic in IT communities and between professionals is BYOT (Bring Your Own Technologies). This week at Mobilize, the GigaOM event, it was two main topics to discuss. Both of them are related to the main 2011 trend: “People brings their own mobile devices to work”.
As custom software development company we are involved at BYOT challenge. After the years IT departments saying no to everything, they are finally saying OK. That’s also changing the level of input employees have on the devices they use.
So, the leading CEO’s has indicated 2011 as the “year when mobile IT was born”. “It was the year the IT industry figured out mobile, and it’s the year that mobile figured out IT”.
Looking to the few past month the future of Flash was not so bright. First Flash was rejected at Apple’s iOS, then Microsoft has banned it on the upcoming version of Internet Explorer 10. So is any future in flash development and what Adobe going to do to keep the internet market share?
For us as software development company this is really important question to keep support such technologies as Flash, Flex or Adobe Air. Adobe still message to developers: “Flash is still relevant, and Adobe is still investing in it”.
Adobe System highlighted Flash 11 this week, and looks like it will be available in October. Also it will be available Air 3 by the end of 2011. Let’s look what will be more under the hood of Flash 11…
In 2011 InfoWorld and Forrester Research “Enterprise Architecture Awards“, 6 winning companies show how their initiatives translate to business success.

Forrester Research with InfoWorld has indicated six world global companies with the leading enterprise architecture, for the second year…
Codename Roslyn project it’s a new type of compiler that will bring the flexibility of dynamic languages to C# and Visual Basic. Roslyn will be released as CTP (Community Technology Preview) by researchers from Microsoft.
Here at SoftElegance we are really interested in such initiative. “This project is about revising what compilers do”… We believe that bringing flexibility of dynamic languages to C# and VB it’s great idea. And idea of “Compiler-as-a-Service” also looks not so bad.
Here is some comments of Anders Hejlsberg about Roslyn project, he said at BUILD…
