Mobile Solutions on Android Smartphones
History Repeats Itself through Revolutionary Change
Mobile devices are revolutionizing the way people receive and send
information. Just like PCs revolutionized the mini and mainframe
computer markets, smartphones and tablets are doing the same to PCs, laptops,
PCs succeeded not by porting software from larger computers, but by
creating solutions that never existed there. We are witnessing the same
evolution with mobile devices.
Mobile Solutions which Can't Exist on PCs
It's not a matter of taking Windows and web desktop solutions and moving
them to mobile devices. People
already complain their monitors or multiple monitors are too small, so moving
those applications to an even smaller mobile screen makes no sense. What
does make sense is creating a whole new
class of solutions targeted for mobile devices.
These would be solutions that perform functions impossible to
achieve on existing PCs and laptops. That means taking advantage of
features unique to mobile devices such as the camera and GPS, and
combining them with collaboration resources such as calendars, contact
lists, email, and databases.
Getting this all to work together and supporting disconnected
environments enables mobile users to truly take advantage of their devices.
While there are lots of mobile applications for consumers, we are
witnessing the beginning of mobile solutions designed to empower
organizations and the way they provide services, collect information,
and manage their operations.
Empowering a North American Field Sales Force
FMS Professional Services team recently created an Android solution for an
international manufacturer that gives their North American team a
just converting a PC system to a mobile device. It
leverages the smartphone features to create a solution that would
not exist on a PC and transforms the way they share information,
communicate, and make decisions.
They still use their PCs and laptops with a web
application. The mobile solution extends that to let them enter and
receive data in a whole new way. It is an Android application that:
- Integrates the camera, GPS, and calendar features to easily upload and geo tag photos
- Sends and receives messages and alerts from their primary
web application so the entire field team is managed in real time
- Leverages information delivered from their SQL Server
business intelligence analytics
- Uses secure connections to a transactional Microsoft SQL Server
