Devoteam: Interoperability and Openness in the cloud - Serving Java in Azure

As part of Microsoft’s continued commitment to interoperability, the Windows Azure platform has been built from the ground up with interoperability in mind. Microsoft is clearly committed to interoperability on the Windows Azure Platform, and “first class citizen” support for Java in particular. 

Java on Windows Azure not only works, but can be part of a cost-effective strategy for building  Java-based (hybrid) cloud applications. Since the proof of the pudding is in the eating, we would like to show you how Java can benefit from the Windows Azure platform through a real case that will be brought by Devoteam.

Come and see for yourself what this is all about in our Executive Briefing Center in Brussels on the 14th of December.


12h: Reception with lunch

13h: Introduction by Rudy Van Hoe, Business Group Lead, Server and Cloud.

Interoperability and Openness in the Cloud.

As the number of Cloud vendors and cloud solutions grow exponentially, the more than legitimate question of customers is how all these different cloud services will integrate with each other in a standard manner. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the different open standard organizations on Cloud, and discuss Microsoft’s solutions and investment strategy on interoperable and open private and public cloud services. Expect us to disclose an exciting interoperability roadmap of Azure!

14h: Case with live demo by Devoteam :

Building full hybrid and interoperable solutions – Serving JAVA and JBOSS on a bed of Windows Azure

As a Business and Technology integrator, Devoteam has always been at the frontline of the technological evolution. The Business Application Integration practice within Devoteam has been a hybrid practice from the start, using both Microsoft and Open Source/Java technology to cover the needs of their customers. This unique mix of competences fueled them into combining the best of both worlds, and work on a solution to bring complex distributed hybrid Java and .NET Applications to the cloud, in a way which has never been possible before. Typical Java oriented cloud services lack a lot of functionality and flexibility, which prevents companies from bringing their Java applications to the cloud. Devoteam can proudly announce that that time has come to an end. They will guide you through the fascinating and production-grade combination of Jboss and Java on Windows Azure, integrating with other both on-premise and cloud based Java and .NET applications.

16h: Interaction, networking and drinks
