The upcoming Interop event in Las Vegas will offer lots of sessions and workshops from fellow IT professionals and experts to attend and get current on your interests.
Take part in the social gathering to meet old friends and make new ones. Personal networking is as important as anything in your career.
Interop is next week and I am looking forward to catching up with old friends, peers, and colleagues and making new acquaintances. Still, the draw for me is meeting with vendors and attending a few of the presentations over the course of the event. The content this year is very solid and there’s something for everyone.
There is a growing trend among MEAP players to include management options to support complex development/testing and collaboration.
HP ALM 12 now supports HP Anywhere mobile app platform management.
There is a growing trend among mobile enterprise app platform (MEAP) providers to build out their platforms with management capabilities or partnerships to include mobile application management (MAM) and application lifecycle management (ALM) capabilities. This consolidation is largely driven by the fact that mobile app projects are no longer siloed, but built on composite applications based on complex architectural foundations. They require interconnectivity points within the application to support collaboration between those involved in design/development of apps, as well as the ability to conduct quality testing early in the development process. For MEAP vendors, a more comprehensive portfolio also equates to a continued shift in their target market from solely developer-focused to IT operations (i.e., a top-down approach versus bottom-up).
