This session demystifies data virtualization, assesses the latest marketplace and shares best practices based on real implementations. • Why is data virtualization important in the era of the Nexus of Forces? • What are the strength, weaknesses and key use cases of data virtualization? • How can data virtualization be incorporated into application development and

Workshop: Technical Insights - Getting Started With Continuous Delivery (This session is for end-users only.)

03 December, 2013 (10:15 AM - 11:45 AM)

The continuous delivery practice advocates the complete automation of the delivery pipeline from the point where developers commit their code to the actual release of the software product to end users. This session covers how to get started with the practice and how to engage your team to take part in the initiative. • What are the steps I should take to create a continuous delivery release pipeline? • What cultural challenges will I face when introducing continuous delivery? • What best practices will aid me when attempting continuous delivery?

Workshop: Technical Insights - Designing Mobile Apps Using Web Technologies (This session is for end-users only. Pre-registration required.)

03 December, 2013 (02:00 PM - 03:00 PM)

Users expect mobile apps that are responsive, aesthetically appealing, and integrate with the underlying features of the native experience. The evolution of Web technologies is transforming how we develop mobile Web applications. Exceeding user expectations requires a departure from the traditional Web application development paradigm and demands we take a new approach to using Web technologies to deliver compelling mobile applications. • What are mobile first, responsive design and progressive enhancement? • How do I use HTML5 features to build mobile Web applications?

Workshop: APM Toolkit (This session is for end-users only. Pre-registration required.)

03 December, 2013 (02:00 PM - 03:30 PM)

04 December, 2013 (08:30 AM - 10:00 AM)

To achieve agile software delivery, you have to change more than just your application development methodology. Project management, application architecture, operations and support have to become more agile as well, and you need to scale up to handle large, complex projects. This workshop explores how to realize the full benefits of the agile approach. • What are the characteristics of a world-class agile organization and how do you know if you have them? • How do you overcome cultural resistance and the issues of legacy application and legacy process? • How do you develop your strategic road map for enterprise-class agile, and how do you execute on it?

04 December, 2013 (08:30 AM - 10:00 AM)

Document-oriented databases change data storage and access in significant ways. NoSQL databases have major implications for data design, scalability and query strategies. This workshop looks at the NoSQL paradigm from the perspective of application development. • What problems do NoSQL databases solve? • What problems do they not solve? • How can NoSQL databases be used effectively when developing applications? • What changes in practices and development are necessary when working with NoSQL databases?

Workshop: Technical Insights: Creating a (More) Successful Application Security Program (This session is for end-users only. Registration for this session is now closed. Please check session availability at the room 15 minutes prior to the session.)

04 December, 2013 (02:00 PM - 03:30 PM)

Whether you’re starting a new application security program or evolving an existing one, choosing what to do or improve can be quite a challenge. Armed with your existing application security program, or knowledge of existing program frameworks (for example, OWASP OpenSAMM, BSIMM, or Microsoft SDL), you and your peers discuss how to structure a successful application security program road map. • Which activities can be used to support an application security program? • Which activities have greater priority and/or lower barrier to entry? • How should the program road map be structured for success?
