Presentation: "Integrating Mobile Field Data in the Enterprise"

Track:   Pervasive Computing

Time: Wednesday 15:45 - 16:30

Location: Nortvegia


Data, data everywhere, but how to actually make use of it? This question has been asked over and over again, yet the answer is always different depending on the needs of the organization. In this session, we'll take a look at the exciting area of the pervasive mobile enterprise. Enterprise mobility has the potential to enable extensions to existing IT solutions and take advantage of the un-tethered workforce.

This session is not about reinventing existing IT solutions, rather it's about how to take advantage of J2ME mobile technology so that devices like PDAs and smart phones become as ubiquitous as desktops and laptops. We'll first define the world of mobile field data, and then explore some of the types of J2ME applications of pervasive computing that can open a whole new world up to your organization. We'll also take look at the types of applications that we'll be seeing a lot of like LBS, GPS, and Field Force Automation.
