Adobe Flex Moves To Center Stage in New York City at "Real-World Flex"

Speakers and Attendees Converge in The Roosevelt Hotel to Discuss Next-Generation Web Applications

The developers, architects, and IT managers who are gathered in New York City this morning to attend the "Real-World Flex" One-Day Seminar being produced by SYS-CON Events today in The Roosevelt Hotel, share one thing in common: a strong awareness that - from Internet businesses like Google and Yahoo! to brick and mortar companies like Jaguar and Sherwin Williams - companies need to bring dynamic, richer content to their Web applications (think Google Finance, think Yahoo! Maps). Because ultimately, RIAs open the door for new possibilities in application development.

What "Real-World Flex" aims to do, in 12 intense hours of laser-focused presentations, discussion, and demos, is to give everyone the full picture of how Adobe Flex 2 is a complete, powerful application development solution for creating and delivering cross-platform RIAs, within the enterprise and across the Web.

The historic Grand Ballroom of Roosevelt here in midtown Manhattan again looks fantastic and Adobe's Dave Mendels (pictured) is keynoting which is certain to be a huge hit with the audience because he'll incorporate live demos etc. Adobe has a really strong presence here and yet the mix is that classic SYS-CON mix of the "software principal," so to speak, surrounded by representatives of the ecosystem around that principal.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
