WebSphere Foundation Update and Technical Direction

Abstract:
Our world - and how people interact with it - is changing with the convergence of mobile, social, big data, and cloud. WebSphere Application Server (WAS) has also been changing, to set the standard for application hosting in the cloud: from rapid development of lightweight and engaging applications in PaaS environments to deployment of complex enterprise topologies via patterns on IaaS infrastructure. In this session, I'll talk about some of the latest WAS features and describe how WAS is evolving to continue to meet enterprise needs, on native, virtualized and PaaS infrastructure. I'll talk about developer ease of use, deployment flexibility, operational resiliency, partner ecosystem and the future direction of WebSphere Application Server including the ways in which we expect to deliver it.
