Session Type: 
Eclipse Technology
Experience level: 

You don’t know what you don’t know, right? Sometimes you step in a pile of manure while out on a beautiful nature walk and it stinks - quite literally. Without a reference point, shipping Eclipse products to enterprises is like that beautiful nature walk; you’ll start off programming with high hopes, and while your head is buried in the code, you’ll step in it - the network and system disasters that await you once your users get a hold of what you’re delivering.

Genuitec’s Tim Webb discusses war stories about the ups & downs of placing products on that “oooh so attractive” enterprise desktop. You’ll learn about key challenges of having your product running in complex enterprise scenarios including:

  • System security constraints
  • Segmented corporate networks
  • Locked-down data centers
  • Network proxies including NTLM setups
  • Update isolation and security
  • Restrictive executable locations on disk

Gain exposure to proven mitigation approaches based on practical experience delivering to an array of environments that exist in Fortune 500 companies. Walk away understanding the landscape of enterprise deployment, and how to prepare your own software for success behind that lucrative firewall. Bring your notebook – you don’t want to miss this!
