However, with some exceptions, most cloud infrastructures don't provide a great model for enabling traditional mobile computing patterns. The Windows Azure platform is an exception to that rule by providing a unique set of infrastructure components and computing models that can power the next generation of mobile enterprise applications. 

This session will explore the capabilities of the Windows Azure platform that can enable sophisticated, highly scalable mobile enterprise applications. The session will illustrate best practices and techniques used in mobile applications to leverage Windows Azure capabilities such as caching, data storage, messaging, computing, identity management and many others. We will showcase these best practices using a series of demonstrations that highlight the use Windows Azure from Windows Phone, Windows 8, IOS, Android and HTML5 applications. Finally, the session will about the capabilities of Windows Azure Mobile Services as a simple and robust model to enable backend capabilities in enterprise mobile applications.

You will learn:

  • Enabling enterprise mobile backend capabilities powered by Windows Azure enterprise
