File design, programming, search techniques, indexing, and multi-threaded processing can dramatically improve processing speed when using your MultiValue database. This session offers proven solutions for optimizing your applications to take full advantage of your computer's resources.
A decision support system (DSS) is a computer program application that analyzes business data and presents it so that users can make business decisions more easily. It is an "informational application" (to distinguish it from an "operational application" that collects the data in the course of normal business operation).Typical information that a decision support application might gather and present would be:
- Comparative sales figures between one week and the next
- Projected revenue figures based on new product sales assumptions
- The consequences of different decision alternatives, given past experience as a context
This session will talk about AI and DSS and how to use it with your existing systems.
Every year fewer MultiValue systems live in isolation. In many businesses, even though the MultiValue system may run the core processing that keeps the business alive, the enterprise has a mix of information platforms for web stores, data warehouses, business intelligence processing, you name it.
We, the MultiValue Community, know that in most cases our platforms can do all that, too. But regardless of our opinions, the fact remains that part of our jobs these days is to work with non-MultiValue developers and find ways to share data in both directions.
As Information Professionals, our world is bigger than just MultiValue.This session explores some of the communication pitfalls, misunderstandings, and commonalities that we and "they" run into and how to overcome them in order to build a multiple platform team.
With the changes to Windows 2012 and 2016, and the changes in Windows 10, Microsoft is pushing hard to replace the traditional "command prompt (cmd)" with PowerShell. PowerShell provides Windows Admins more functionality, features, and command complexity than existed before.
This session will provide an Introduction to PowerShell and how to use it. There will also be examples on how to create PowerShell scripts that interact with your MultiValue Databases.
Business Systems aren't housed on one central computer, but many different computers that need to talk with each other. This session will cover different ways to feed MultiValue data to other computer systems and how the MultiValue system can receive data from other business systems.
There are many different "Frameworks" and "Coding Methodologies," not to mention various "Best Practices." This session is designed to help Developers understand what each one brings to the enterprise, and how it can be used or combined with others.
Find out how MVC relates to MVP and MVVM. Talk about "Best Practices" when it comes to Desktop developer vs. Web development vs Mobile Development. See how they may or may not be related to MultiValue applications.
Creating visually appealing reports, charts, maps, and graphics from MultiValue data used to be a long, drawn-out process. With the ability to use Microsoft's PowerBI, your MultiValue data suddenly has the power of modern visualizations and business intelligence.
This session will provide you the means to export and manipulate your MultiValue data using PowerBI.
Office 365 has made working with Outlook and Cloud Storage easy for users. Recently, Microsoft has added Office 365 REST services to the mix. This allows users to access their email, contact, calendars and OneDrive data from any device: Desktop, Tablet, iPhone, and Android.
This session will show you how to add, update, and remove information from Office365 from within your MulitValue ERP or LOB application.
Every year the landscape of IT changes - new products, new platforms and new risks. Governments enact laws and regulations to bring order - new ones arriving somewhere almost daily. Let's review what is going on in the coming year with governance and compliance requirements, the threats that they address and things you can do to stay ahead of the wave.
Code Review and Coding for Testing are techniques that can offer quality and productivity improvements to any organization; large or small. Both are gaining traction in every industry and development platform, MultiValue need not be an exception.
This session will explore code reviewing - what it is, how it's done and what it can bring and will review ways to develop with function, unit, and white-box testing in mind.
Rocket UniVerse Replication provides an automatic way to deliver read-only copies of UniVerse data to another Universe database. This allows you to create standby systems easily and keep them up-to-date and accurate, or to create data warehouses for reporting and other processing.
This session will show what UniVerse Replication can do and how to set it up.
Attend this hands on demonstration of implementing Universe RESTful Services. Discussions on best practice for communication to the web service, step by step creation of a web service, and real live examples will be provided.
The art of designing maintainable applications.
Most applications are clear and attractive to the user but when you look under the covers, figuring out what is going on can be a nightmare. The more mature the application the more confusing the application plumbing can be. Some developers make a career out of understanding just one module of an application. Bringing in outside help often requires weeks of training to learn how to work with application they can be productive. During the session we will go over tips and practices of design that will result in an application that can be quickly understood and maintained.
When looking at Virtualizing MultiValue Servers, there are a lot of things to look and question. One of the questions that often come up is when to use an Inhouse Server, Private Cloud Server, or a Public Cloud Server.
What are these and how does that affect your choices? Richard Thiot, a long time International Spectrum Speaker, will provide to you information to help understand when, why, and should you, when looking at virtualizing your servers.
