What’s Next? Paris keynote

I gave a keynote at the What’s Next? Paris conference last Thursday (26th May) on the key issues that I see impacting enterprise application development in 2011. The talk was in three parts – the first section covers some of the big picture issues: new ways to access applications; new modes of interaction; a digression on big data; and new ways to develop and deploy applications. The second section is a dive into what “Platform as a Service” is all about, with a look at Cloud Foundry and what makes it unique in terms of openness. The third part covers a topic I want to say much more about in forthcoming posts on this blog: what Platform as a Service will mean for enterprise apps – how does application design and development change when targeting a PaaS based runtime environment?
