The cloud has many benefits, but when it comes to application development, how does the cloud help enterprises and development teams create custom software and applications that end users actually care about? Using real world examples from Adobe, Herff Jones and Navy Federal Credit Union, this session will highlight the advantages cloud computing provides for quickly developing custom software and applications with compelling user experiences.

In their general session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Anthony Franco, president of EffectiveUI, and Ken Guiberson, CTO of EffectiveUI, will explore:

  • Using the flexible nature of cloud computing to rapidly design and deploy integrated enterprise applications
  • Leveraging the cloud for a highly visible and transparent development process
  • Using a service-oriented architecture (SOA) to create a hybrid cloud
