Infragistics Develops Custom User Interface on Silverlight for Microsoft Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3

Creative UI Solution Delivers Rich Immersive User Experience on Consumer Internet Device (CID)

PRINCETON, N.J. and ELSTREE, United Kingdom, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Infragistics, a world leader in user interface (UI) development tools and experts in the User Experience (UX) market, announced today that it has developed a customized User Interface on Silverlight for Windows Embedded, the new Silverlight-based UI framework released with Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3. Designed for a touch tablet Consumer Internet Device (CID), Infragistics leverages the capabilities inherent in Silverlight to build a visually-appealing and intuitive UI that delivers a compelling user experience.

"We are excited to work with Infragistics as part of the Microsoft ecosystem as they drive immersive user experiences on CIDs," said David Wurster, senior product manager for Windows Embedded at Microsoft. "Infragistics' customized UI on the new Silverlight for Windows Embedded UI framework demonstrates the opportunity for OEMs to leverage the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 platform to help differentiate their devices with compelling UIs, rich Internet applications and seamless connectivity to Windows 7-based PC, servers and online services."

Infragistics, a Microsoft Design Partner, was charged with developing a UI using Silverlight for a 7" touch tablet CID demonstration that is based in the home. The home owner has a wireless network with their content such as music, videos and pictures, stored on a Windows Personal Computer (PC). When the home owner unpacks the device, it visually prompts the user to connect to the PC to start synching between the device and the Windows 7-based PC.

"Given the user scenario, we knew that the UI needed to reflect pre-installed applications that 'consume content' as opposed to general purpose applications that 'create content' which requires a different UX methodology," said Grant Hinkson, director of Experience Design at Infragistics. "Under this premise, we developed a UI design that end users will naturally understand and relate to with large, clear action areas that take into consideration the way they will hold and interact with the device."

Infragistics' customized UI for Windows Embedded devices will be highlighted during the Microsoft Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 launch demo during the industry keynote address at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston on Sept. 22. Infragistics will also be in attendance and available for further discussion about UI development for embedded devices at the Windows Embedded Booth # 400.

Infragistics' User Experience team is comprised of a group of experts with numerous years of experience publishing, speaking on, and working with UX.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
A valuable conference experience generates new contacts, sales leads, potential strategic partners and potential investors; helps gather competitive intelligence and even provides inspiration for new products and services. Conference Guru works with conference organizers to pass great deals to great conferences, helping you discover new conferences and increase your return on investment.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
