According to Forrester, the global market for cloud computing will increase six-fold to $240 billion by the end of the decade. In this session, we’ll discuss the core components and attributes of a cloud solution – focusing on Microsoft Windows Azure – and investigate the advantages of and opportunities for adapting existing PowerBuilder applications (and building new ones) to work in a cloud environment. We’ll specifically take a look at how to host PowerBuilder Web services in the cloud as well as how to leverage cloud services – including SQL Azure – from an application built to run in-house. After a combination of slides, demos, and discussion you’ll leave with a better understanding of how you as a PowerBuilder developer and architect can stake your claim in the cloud.
