AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo Attracts Top Faculty

Conference Theme: Beyond AJAX to the Rich Internet Application & Rich Interactive Experience Era

Rich Internet Applications offer the potential to fundamentally change the user experience and in doing so, yield significant business benefits. The theme of this October's AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008 West is 'Beyond AJAX to the RIA Era' and the Call for Papers, which is still open, specifically encourages submissions from exceptional speakers with high-quality use cases of the fast-emerging RIA alternatives.

Call for Papers Now Open - Submit Your Speaking Proposal Here !

The business value of RIAs is very clear: aesthetics do matter and users would like a pleasant experience.

Most enterprise applications are based on old client-server technology with high cost of ownership and lack of flexibility. Switching to the Web as a platform for mission-critical applications is very appealing as it lowers the TCO significantly.

Industry experts are arguing that enterprises now realize that endorsing Web 2.0 is going to happen via RIAs. Improving the user experience and adding interactive visualization is just the starting point. RIAs also offer scalability, reliability, performance, and security on par with what they are used to with old client-server technology.

Call for Papers Now Open - Submit Your Speaking Proposal Here !

  • The Business Case for Rich Internet Applications
