If you are one of the 7000+ people planning to attend the 28th SIFMA Technology Management Conference in NY next month, make sure to stop by the GigaSpaces booth. We'll be launching and demonstrating exciting new offerings with Microsoft, Lab 49, Amazon, and more.
You'll find us at the Microsoft mega-booth, in the Grand Ballroom. This year GigaSpaces, along with 4 select partners, will be exhibiting with Microsoft as a key enabler of Microsoft's vision for Evolving Markets.
Visitors will get a chance to see a live demo of our new solution for Excel users in financial services – Excel That Scales. Ask us and our friends from Microsoft Capital Markets and from Lab 49 about our turn-key offering, aimed at dramatically improving the productivity of the most demanding Excel users, and the quality of life of the IT folks who support them.
Oh… and don't forget to check on the new Visual Basic (VB) Spaces API. GigaSpaces VB API version 1.0 is now available under OpenSpaces.org. What this means is that users who write VB code as part of their Excel applications on the desktop will now be able to natively integrate with GigaSpaces on the back end from within their code! See details and code examples here and here.
In fact, this API can be used by either Excel or any other VB-based application (or any other COM client). And as part of OpenSpaces.org the API is now available for everyone to use and extend based on their specific requirements.
Thank you Guy Sayar for creating this API!!
Lastly, while you are there ask our good friends from Lab 49 to show you their new eMarket Trading Application. We'll be running a demo of this application on Amazon's Elastic Cloud (EC2) and will be showcasing its dynamic provisioning capabilities. More on this one soon.
So… see you in 4 weeks at SIFMA!
