Today, there are several trends that are forcing application architectures to evolve. Users expect a rich, interactive and dynamic user experience on a wide variety of clients including mobile devices. Applications must be highly scalable, highly available and run on cloud environments. Organizations often want to frequently roll out updates, even multiple times a day. Consequently, it’s no longer adequate to develop simple, monolithic web applications that serve up HTML to desktop browsers.
In this talk we describe the limitations of a monolithic architecture. You will learn how to use the scale cube to decompose your application into a set of narrowly focused, independently deployable back-end services and an HTML 5 client. We will also discuss the role of technologies such as NodeJS and AMQP brokers. You will learn how a modern PaaS such as Cloud Foundry simplifies the development and deployment of this style of application.

GREGG KREIZMAN, Research VP, Secure Business Enablement, Gartner:
Your customers are expecting easy frictionless access to your online services from anywhere and from any device, and possibly using digital identities that you don’t manage! These demands create new challenges, and traditional employee-facing identity and access management implementations won’t succeed in this new era. Are you ready to give your business partners and customers a positive experience and will your solution scale and perform well over time? Gregg Kreizman provides an overview of the consumer identity challenges.
