June 16 Webinar – RAD Server Application Deep Dive – Creating a Department Store Retail Solution

by Jun 13, 2016

During this webinar you'll learn how to develop and deploy a real world Department Store Retail application using Embarcadero RAD Server. The client app runs on smartphones and the server side executes on IIS production servers on premises and on Amazon. The content covered on this webinar goes deeper technically into the department store solution that was first presented as part of the RAD Server Launch Webinar on Thursday, May 19, 2016.

The app allows customers to look up price and descriptions of products in the store using product barcodes and keying in product SKUs. The app also enhances the customer experience and facilitate marketing programs by lighting up an end-cap product display as the customer nears a target product. The app also sends sale prices to the customer via push notifications when customer is near a relevant sale item. 

During the webinar you will see how to use RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin and RAD Server to: 

• Design and implement the smartphone client application 
• Define and build the Back-end REST APIs 
• Connect the Back-end to RDBMS & Cloud services 
• Create an IoT Edge Service to control the End-Cap light 
• Use Beacons for indoor location tracking in retail zones 
• Integrate push notifications 
• Deploy the back-end to an on premise production server and to Amazon EC2 
• Gather and report API usage and statistics
