Why is user experience (UX) so critical for effective mobile application development? What is the real difference between a native application and a hybrid application? We just invested CapEx into our own hardware two years ago, why should we move over to the cloud now?
The Emerging Tech program leverages internal subject matter expertise with relevant market best practices for a best-in-class training program. This program is comprised of four modules; each may be taken individually, or the four may be combined to offer a comprehensive overview of today’s cutting-edge technologies and how they correlate to one another. Courses are intended to present an intermediate level of knowledge on key technology concepts pertinent in today’s world.
Intended Audience: Any IT or business professional wanting an intermediate level of knowledge of key technology concepts. Audience may include officers, directors, senior directors, business analysts, business technical analysts, project managers, product owners, and/or any other interested individual wanting to understand trending technologies and their market impact and business relevance.
Emerging Tech: Mobile
The Mobile module provides a historical progression of mobile technology, a functional and technical overview of current and emerging technologies in the mobile space, and strategies currently being used internally and externally to engage users/customers. Technologies and strategies include: User Experience, Social Strategies, Apps (Native, Mobile Web, Hybrid), Geo-Fencing, iBeacon, iOS, Android, and Windows.
Emerging Tech: Cloud
The Cloud module de-mystifies the ubiquitous concept of “The Cloud.” This module provides specific definitions and examples of the cloud—it’s components, uses, advantages, and disadvantages. Specific cloud providers and their related technologies will also be highlighted (AWS, Azure, etc.). Various cloud approaches are also defined such as hybrid cloud, private cloud, mobile cloud, and IoT. Service models are also outlined and defined such as SaaS, PaaS, IaaS.
Emerging Tech: Data
The Data module initially provides a historical perspective to the evolution of Big Data. Big Data technologies, structures, and strategies are reviewed including NoSQL, visualization, and predictive analytics. Ethics and best practices are also examined as a key aspect of this module. The Four V’s (Volume, Veracity, Velocity, and Variety) are also outlined.
Emerging Tech: Middleware
The Middleware module focuses on the critical importance of middleware in the digital age. Traditional middleware technologies and strategies are outlined such as XML, SOAP, and Web Services/API. Emerging technologies such as JSON, REST, and Akka are also presented. Architectural diagrams provide perspective to the relationship between middleware, front end, and back end technologies.
