Introducing the OData Protocol Webinar by EITAGlobal

11/28/2013 10:00 AM

Overview: Moving data across the wire is a fundamental task in application development. There are a myriad of options and no silver bullet… or is there? Open Data Protocol (OData) is an exciting technology that allows for easy and standard HTTP REST endpoints that receive rich queries from the client and return just the right data in the requested format. OData is a standardized protocol for creating and consuming data APIs. OData builds on core protocols like HTTP and commonly accepted methodologies like REST. The result is a uniform way to expose full-featured data APIs.

In this introduction of OData, Chris Woodruff will discuss where OData came from, the current landscape of the technology and finally where OData is going to allow you to be more productive as an IT organization.

Why Should You Attend: Does your organization build web and mobile applications for your customers, clients and/or employees? Do you want to get those applications out into their hands quicker and with less maintainability from your already over-worked IT staff? Knowing and understanding what the Open Data Protocol (OData) can bring to your enterprise will allow you to build one data platform for all aspects of your IT needs. It will open up a new way to look at your data that you may not have thought possible.
