Presentation: "HTML5 WebSockets - the Web Communication revolution, making the impossible, possible"

Track: Architect Track / Time: Tuesday 11:30 - 12:30 / Location: Room 2

HTML5 WebSockets is rapidly becoming the standard for better connecting business data with Web-based clients, and also for Web and Cloud enabling parts of the business that perhaps today are not taking advantage of these trends. However the vision for WebSockets is vastly bigger than this. What today constitutes the best choice for delivering low-latency, real time data to Rich Internet Applications is now also proving to be the new standard communication technology for all Web interaction going forward. With the limitations of HTTP lifted, what sorts of applications can now be built? What new ways can you best connect your business with your customers over the Web, Cloud or Mobile with low latency and high scale? Come to this session to hear about how WebSocket technology is delivering on the dreams of many large organisations as they better serve their customers demands for business data over the Web, and hear about some of the revolutionary things that were once deemed impossible, made possible.
