Open source and web technologies promise to dispatch older proprietary peers with the power of community and innovation that deliver superior features plus better economics. However, having the most innovative product won’t help if your application doesn’t also embrace incumbents and offer better overall performance too. In this session, Zimbra shares its experience, tips, tricks incorporating the mainstream (BlackBerry, iPhone 2, AD, Exchange) with new web technologies (REST, XMPP, MySQL, J2ME, AJAX and more) to gradually reshape the enterprise.
