Office Developer Conference – Kurt DelBene


image Kurt DelBeneCorp. VP, Office Business Platform Group had the second keynote after Bill Gates. He talked about applying OBA to real world business applications. He also went much deeper on the announcements.

Kurt talked about developer trends in the market. SharePoint development is a rising star in the .Net world. Interoperability was discussed in length. There were a ton of Business Data Catalog (BDC), BizTalk Adapter Pack and OpenXML demos and discussions. I like the slide below, very simply MOSS is the Glue…

The Financial Services OBA Component Library was announced in the keynote!!!

Kurt spent a good amount of time on library and how it ties nicely into the overall strategy for Office Business Applications.

Components will be released very soon to the Financial Services Architecture Center on MSDN.

I will be blogging more on this as time goes on.

There were a ton of business applications demo’ed. Below is a sampling of those.
