Windows 10: The Big New Opportunity for Developers

Windows 10 is not just another release. Microsoft is introducing a concept it calls “Windows as a service,” which means that the operating system will be continuously updated, though with options for businesses to move at a slow pace in order to retain stability.

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s second attempt at moving its core operating system into the mobile era. Windows 8, released in late 2012, was a bold re-imagining of Windows that divided the system into two personalities, one that was a new touch-friendly environment originally called Metro, and the other the traditional desktop. Metro is powered by a runtime layer called the Windows Runtime (WinRT), for which apps are written using the .NET languages (C# or Visual Basic), HTML and JavaScript, or C++.

Delphi and C++Builder on Raspberry Pi & SBC

The Raspberry Pi is an example of a single board computer. These low cost hobby or project computers are a prime staple of the Internet of Things. More powerful than an Arduino, but not a full desktop. They often have limited or specialized hardware, but their small size and low cost make them ideal for embedded application development.

Delphi supports both ARM and Intel processors with a variety of operating systems. This webinar will explore the combinations of hardware and operating system that make good Delphi target platforms. Then we will look at some examples and provide some resources to get you started.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for software vendors

The robotic revolution has arrived and it looks nothing like we imagined. We’re not talking about futuristic, mechanical robots; we’re talking about intelligent software robots that automate virtually any business activity involving users, data and systems.

Robotic process automation (RPA) uses software robots to eliminate manual tasks for copying and pasting data between internal and external systems – such as websites, portals, enterprise applications, legacy systems, and desktop applications like Excel. RPA can make your software solutions even more valuable to your customers by enabling them to eliminate these manual tasks in their core processes.

Simply read the e-book and learn how OEMing our RPA software can give you that competitive advantage.

Secrets of a Great API

Not all APIs are created equal

A great API encourages developers to use it and share it with others, creating a virtuous cycle where each additional successful implementation leads to greater engagement and more contributions from developers who add value to your service.

Unfortunately, too many API providers build their APIs before thinking through the critical success factors, resulting in APIs that fail to meet business objectives. Delivering a great API isn’t hard if you follow a few proven principles.

In this paper you’ll learn:

  • What developers really want from your API
  • How to make your API stand out from the crowd
  • Strategies for driving broad developer adoption
  • A fool-proof way to design for great user experience

Why IoT Needs a Data Integration Strategy

One of the exciting areas of the IoT is its potential to change how we engage with technology and transact business. The move to IoT is providing unprecedented access to data that either didn’t exist before, or was too complicated and expensive to collect. While the Machine to Machine (M2M) era focused mainly on the challenges of connecting devices, the IoT era concentrates on the opportunities presented to businesses who use connected data. This data can provide valuable context for business processes. By collecting and analyzing IoT data, groups within an organization can increase efficiencies with services such as predictive maintenance and route optimization. It can also improve the customer experience by supporting new service experiences such as omnichannel retail and smart home applications.
