Adobe Systems has announced Adobe LiveCycle Enterprise Suite 2 (ES2), a software release enabling businesses and governments to build applications that improve interactions with customers and constituents across devices and channels. Delivering significant productivity improvements to IT and line-of-business managers, LiveCycle ES2 provides a rich Internet application (RIA) framework for building customizable RIA workspaces, mobile and desktop access to critical applications and deployment in the cloud. Enterprises can now deliver personalized experiences that connect to automated processes and embed real-time collaboration in the applications to improve customer experience and boost employee productivity.

“Adobe LiveCycle ES2 is an ideal complement to our business process automation efforts. With the latest release, we anticipate even greater efficiencies in automating processes that touch our employees, partners and customers,” said Rainer Hahn, chief information officer for personal services telekom at Deutsche Telekom. “Adobe LiveCycle ES2 is flexible and easy-to-use, enabling us to quickly transform some of our most complex business processes. This helps us better reach our business goals.”

“Adobe LiveCycle ES2 enables enterprises to build software solutions that work the way people work, in a format that people have become accustomed to in their personal lives, with social media, mobile and consumer applications -- this is key to driving business in today’s economy,” said Rob Tarkoff, senior vice president and general manager, Business Productivity Business Unit. “LiveCycle ES2 offers powerful tools and environments such as model-driven application development, self-service RIA frameworks and streamlined authoring to enable organizations to create applications that more effectively generate, capture, and exchange critical information.”

LiveCycle ES2 now integrates more tightly with the Flash Platform and PDF technologies. This enables enterprise developers to create user-centric applications that contrast with the more traditional, unwieldy system-centric applications users have had to tolerate. New Adobe application modeling technology brings higher productivity to Adobe® Flex® and LiveCycle developers and allows them to more efficiently write applications by reducing the amount of code and simplifying data and service integration. Also, a new LiveCycle ES2 plug-in for Adobe® Flash® Builder™ 4 beta lets developers more seamlessly embed LiveCycle ES2 technologies into any Flex based application. Furthermore, the new Adobe® LiveCycle® Collaboration Service (formerly Adobe Flash Collaboration Service), a hosted service, provides developers and enterprises with a scalable solution to easily build real-time, multi-user collaboration into existing or new RIAs. The powerful and flexible framework accelerates the development and deployment of user-centric applications by enterprise developers.

The new Adobe LiveCycle Mosaic ES2 is a composite RIA framework for rapidly assembling intuitive, personalized and activity-centric RIA applications. Developers can extend existing enterprise applications by exposing their business logic and user interfaces into application "tiles." Tiles are context-aware, user interface application components that can be assembled to create unified views that best suit the user’s work habits and specific needs. Users can switch between multiple tasks without losing work in progress, and can save workspaces to return to later.

Prior to Wasabi, David co-founded Carbonite, one of the world's leading cloud backup companies. A successful tech entrepreneur for more than 30 years, David got his start at ARP Instruments, a manufacturer of synthesizers for rock bands, where he worked with leading musicians of the day like Stevie Wonder, Pete Townsend of The Who, and Led Zeppelin. David has also co-founded five other companies including Computer Pictures Corporation - an early player in computer graphics, Pilot Software - a company that pioneered multidimensional databases for crunching large amounts of customer data for major retail companies, Faxnet - which became the world's largest provider of fax-to-email services, as well as Sonexis - a VoIP conferencing company.
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.
With the mainstreaming of IoT, connected devices, and sensors, data is being generated at a phenomenal rate, particularly at the edge of the network. IDC's FutureScape for IoT report found that by 2019, 40% of IoT data will be stored, processed, analyzed and acted upon at the edge of the network where it is created. Why at the edge? Turns out that sensor data, in most cases, is perishable. Its value is realized within a narrow window after its creation. Further, analytics at the edge provides other benefits.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by FTC, CUI/DFARS, EU-GDPR and the underlying National Cybersecurity Framework suggest the need for a ground-up re-thinking of security strategies and compliance actions. This session offers actionable advice based on case studies to demonstrate the impact of security and privacy attributes for the cloud-backed IoT and AI ecosystem.
Enterprises that want to take advantage of the Digital Economy are faced with the challenge of addressing the demands of multi speed IT and omni channel enablement. They are often burdened with applications that are complex, brittle monoliths. This is usually coupled with the need to remediate an existing services layer that is not well constructed with inadequate governance and management. These enterprises need to face tremendous disruption as they get re-defined and re-invented to meet the demands of the Digital Economy. The use of a microservices approach exposed through APIs can be the solution these enterprises need to enable them to meet the increased business demands to quickly add new functionality.
