Adobe Flex Moves To Center Stage in New York City at "Real-World Flex"

Speakers and Attendees Converge in The Roosevelt Hotel to Discuss Next-Generation Web Applications

The developers, architects, and IT managers who are gathered in New York City this morning to attend the "Real-World Flex" One-Day Seminar being produced by SYS-CON Events today in The Roosevelt Hotel, share one thing in common: a strong awareness that - from Internet businesses like Google and Yahoo! to brick and mortar companies like Jaguar and Sherwin Williams - companies need to bring dynamic, richer content to their Web applications (think Google Finance, think Yahoo! Maps). Because ultimately, RIAs open the door for new possibilities in application development.

What "Real-World Flex" aims to do, in 12 intense hours of laser-focused presentations, discussion, and demos, is to give everyone the full picture of how Adobe Flex 2 is a complete, powerful application development solution for creating and delivering cross-platform RIAs, within the enterprise and across the Web.

The historic Grand Ballroom of Roosevelt here in midtown Manhattan again looks fantastic and Adobe's Dave Mendels (pictured) is keynoting which is certain to be a huge hit with the audience because he'll incorporate live demos etc. Adobe has a really strong presence here and yet the mix is that classic SYS-CON mix of the "software principal," so to speak, surrounded by representatives of the ecosystem around that principal.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
