Unless you have been sleeping under a rock, you are probably aware that in May 2011 Google open-sourced the key audio/video components for web browsers, paving the way for the development of rich, high quality, RTC (real-time communication) applications in the browser via simple Javascript APIs and HTML5. This in turn gave rise to the WebRTC project, a cross-industry project to bring Real-Time Communication to the Open Web platform.

WebRTC - Web-based Real-Time Communication - is being heralded as one of most disruptive web/telecoms innovations for years, which is why SYS-CON Events, true to its 13-year tradition of producing events on the technologies of tomorrow, is holding its 1st WebRTC Summit in California's Silicon Valley in November.



The distinguished lineup of expert speakers at the inaugural WebRTC Summit will look at questions such as:

  • WebRTC for telcos - is there a real business opportunity?
  • Is Skype a WebRTC Killer, or is WebRTC a Skype killer?
  • Peer-to-peer use of WebRTC
  • RTCPeerConnection
  • Integrating WebRTC with Web Audio
  • The Voice-Enabled Web
  • P2P communication in the browser
  • The monetization of WebRTC

Google’s Justin Uberti claims that developers will soon be able to reach more than 1 billion browsers and devices with the WebRTC protocol. Uberti is Google's Tech Lead for WebRTC. He also mentions that by end of 2016 there will be a staggering 3 billion WebRTC-capable devices.

Web RTC has the support of IT giants like Google, Ericsson, Cisco, Telefonica and AT&T.

Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
Digital transformation is about embracing digital technologies into a company's culture to better connect with its customers, automate processes, create better tools, enter new markets, etc. Such a transformation requires continuous orchestration across teams and an environment based on open collaboration and daily experiments. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Alex Casalboni, Technical (Cloud) Evangelist at Cloud Academy, explored and discussed the most urgent unsolved challenges to achieve full cloud literacy in the enterprise world.
