Sencha Wins 2014 SD Times 100 Award in Mobile Category

Sencha, a leader in powering HTML5 development for desktop and mobile applications, has been selected by the editors at SD Times for a 2014 SD Times 100 Award in the Mobile category. The award was published in the June 2014 issue of BZ Media’s SD Times and on www.sdtimes.com.

Each year, the SD Times 100 Award recognizes businesses for their innovation, thought leadership and ability to demonstrate competitiveness in the software development industry. Sencha’s award in the Mobile category is based on the company’s ability to help developers port their applications to mobile without sacrificing quality.

In July 2013, Sencha announced Sencha Space, pioneering a new category of secure mobile software clients that makes deploying and securing mobile business applications easy. As the missing link to multi-device application development and management, Space is a key addition to Sencha’s HTML5 frameworks and tools, providing businesses with an ideal suite of products to design, build and deploy high quality and secure mobile applications that can run on all of today’s leading mobile devices.

“The software development industry has always been competitive, but never more so given the innovation we're seeing in so many spaces, including mobile, cloud, SaaS, DevOps/ALM, developer tools, quality assurance and Big Data,” said David Rubinstein, editor-in-chief of BZ Media's SD Times. “For the 2014 SD Times 100, our editors carefully considered each nominee's products and services, thought leadership and reputation. Thanks to companies like Sencha, the future for software development is very bright.”

In the last year, Sencha not only released new products to enhance and simplify touch capabilities and visual theming, but also entered into new significant partnerships to satisfy enterprise demand to deploy HTML5 applications on premise and in the cloud, easing business application performance for the new multi-device world. Sencha’s frameworks allow applications to run on any mobile device, tablet or browser with little to no modification in the code base.

“Sencha’s tools and frameworks have become the industry standard for designing, developing and deploying web-based HTML5 applications in the enterprise,” said Jeff Hartley, vice president, Products and Services, Sencha. “We are honored to receive this distinction for the second time, demonstrating our commitment to the mobile enterprise and success in providing innovative solutions to deploy and manage powerful applications that function in a multi-device, BYOD world.”

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
