What exactly is this CAM and FTC stuff?

In the last few months, I have noticed some new acronyms creep up in the SharePoint community.  What is it?  Well as a developer, it’s stuff you’re probably already doing.  You take a search in your favorite search engine and you won’t find the terms mentioned much with the earliest mention I could see starting around October of last year.  The definitions will seem obvious when you see them.

  • CAM – Cloud App Model.  This is basically referring to the new SharePoint app model introduced with SharePoint 2013.
  • FTC – Full Trust Code.  The way you have been developing with previous versions of SharePoint using solution packages and server side code.

More recently I also saw a reference to PTC as well in a post by @mkashman.  What’s that?  Partially trusted code.  In this case, we are talking about Sandboxed solutions.  When I think of PTC, I still think of partially trusted code using CAS policies.

Any how, it’s no secret that there is a big push for us to transition our code to the new cloud app model.  You’ll see more and more references of “FTC to CAM”.  There is even a session or two on this at SharePoint Conference 2014.

What do you think?  Did you have any idea what these acronyms were when you first saw them?

The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.

Building the Future of Monitoring with Artificial Intelligence Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like "How is my application doing" but no idea how to get a proper answer.
