Bring web scale to backend business systems via adapters, replication, sharding, queuing & caching to support a growing mobile workforce. Many of the backend systems running global business over the last several decades have something in common besides not being able to communicate with mobile devices. They’re not designed to support the scale needed to empower today’s mobile workforces. Actually, most of these packages and associated databases were designed for departmental or workgroup use in a world where everyone had a single PC on their desk. The IT infrastructures of most companies are wholly unprepared to support mobility. Whether you’re wrapping your systems in REST APIs or using a mobile middleware

If you’ve used Merge Replication to sync SQL Server Compact data on mobile devices with SQL Server in the past and you’re looking for a cross-platform solution to take you into the future, take a look at Zumero. As many of you know, I spent most of the first decade of the 21st century building massive-scale mobile enterprise solutions for the world’s largest companies. The backbone of many of those architectures was based on the Merge Replication technology built into SQL Server that allowed mobile devices running the embedded SQL Server Compact database to sync data and take it offline for use with mobile apps. This was a great solution that took care

At TechEd New Zealand, I presented a session on how to integrate a company’s backend systems into SQL Server 2014 and deliver that data out to mobile devices via Web APIs to support the operations of occasionally-connected apps on mobile devices using NoSQL tables. Enterprise mobility is a top priority for Chief Information Officers who must empower employees and reach customers by moving data from backend systems out to apps on mobile devices.  This data must flow over inefficient wireless data networks, be consumable by any mobile device, and scale to support millions of users while delivering exceptional performance.  Since wireless coverage is inconsistent, apps must store this data offline so users can be productive

Getting data off disk drives and into RAM is the biggest game changer for relational databases in decades and SQL Server 2014 brings it to the masses. RAM is cheap and it’s finally time to reap the benefits of 64-bit computing. SQL Server In-Memory OLTP, also know at Hekaton is here and it’s ready to transform your business.  Unlike other recent entries to the in-memory database space, SQL Server 2014 integrates this new technology directly into the database engine instead of being a separate add-on. Additionally, existing SQL Server DBAs and developers will feel right at home building memory-optimized databases with same SQL Server Management Studio they’ve used for years.  Not having
