That's Web 2.0! Flex 2.0 + Flash Player 8.5 = RIA

Adobe Cranks Up Its Frontal Assault on Rich Internet Applications

"With Flex 2.0 and Flash Player 8.5, we can finally deliver the kinds of rich applications our clients demand without compromise. That's Web 2.0!" With these words, a VP at Cynergy Systems today gave his ringing endorsement of the Adobe Flex 2.0 product line and Adobe Flash Player 8.5.

The VP, Dave Wolf, was speaking out as Adobe today announced the public beta of Adobe Flex 2.0.

"Adobe is committed to delivering the tools and servers that application developers need to deliver engaging rich Internet applications, from interactive product configurators to mission critical business applications," said David Mendels (pictured), senior vice president, Enterprise and Developer Business Unit at Adobe.

"The response to the public alpha release of the Flex 2.0 product line has been tremendous, and we can't wait to see what developers will do with the new capabilities found in this release," Mendels continued.

Developers everywhere, he said, will now be able "to build next-generation Web experiences that help organizations engage users more effectively, increase productivity, and deliver better business results."

The Flex 2.0 product line, Mendels explained, comes with what he described as a powerful and extensible application framework, intuitive programming model, standards-based data integration, and a powerful Eclipse-based integrated IDE for application development and UI design.

"With an extensive component library, advanced data integration, and support for standard back-end server infrastructures, Flex 2.0 enables developers to build virtually any type of rich Internet application, from simple interactive sites, to rich data dashboards and portals, to data intensive enterprise applications," he added.

The following components are part of the Flex beta program:

  • Flash Player 8.5 -- the latest high-performance client runtime for engaging Web experiences
  • Flex Framework 2.0 -- the core programming model and component library for Flex
  • Flex Builder 2.0 -- an Eclipse-based IDE for developing rich Internet applications with the Flex Framework
  • Flex Enterprise Services 2.0 -- essential data services and an open adapter architecture for delivering data-intensive rich Internet applications and deeply integrating with enterprise service-oriented infrastructure
  • Flex Charting Components 2.0 -- extensible components for advanced data visualization

Beta versions of the full Adobe Flex 2.0 product line and Adobe Flash Player 8.5 are available now from Adobe Labs. Readers can visit http://labs.adobe.com.

We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
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-c...

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.
