Integration Strategies

April 20, 2010 @ 7:00pm – Integration Strategies


True impactful IT must start with a business partnership and understanding what the business problems are. Our presentation will talk about this process and by doing that how we helped improve the implementation process of a 3 Billion dollar business by in excess of 8 figures. We will also go deep into certain technology areas that helped us be successful such as BPM, WS-AT, client self service, and Portal technologies.


Thomas Richardson has worked at ADP since 2003. He has held various roles such as Development Manager and Senior Director of portal and mostly recent as CTO of Major Accounts.  Prior to ADP Thomas worked with two start companies Ricochet Systems and Stardata as their CTO. Before that Thomas worked for an ADP competitor, Ceredian, as its benefits development manager. Before moving into the management ranks he was a Java and C developer. He has been working in the SaaS arena for 12 years and 15 years in Web development.

Thomas will be joined by other individuals from ADP who will present certain details.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

June 20, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
