IT trends

Even if we distance ourselves of the inevitable hype, we can distinguish some remarkable trends in actual application development: information and processing should be available everywhere and on multiple platforms, applications should be more flexible and their set-up more ad-hoc. And, as we do not have the time and the means to create something new for every situation, we often try to re-integrate the things that already exist and to re-use them in new combinations.

This seminar explains some actual topics, mainly in software development, and the technologies they are associated with.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
