Synopses & Reviews
Integrating Wireless Devices in the Enterprise provides a solution that every enterprise can use, described in terms of scope, feasibility and return on investment, architecture, and data structures. The solution Wheeler offers here is scalable from a single handheld and single desktop to small workgroup to large enterprise environments. The number of devices is not a determinant of success or failure. It's more often the planning and managing of them that's crucial. This book also provides tools to deal with the increase of devices, and the corresponding complexity of managing those resources and the increase in cost to the firm.

Mobile computing has an Achilles heel--data content delivery and data transfer back to the central data store. This title explains all the popular user mobile devices--handheld computers, mobile phones, pagers, and laptops--that receive and transfer their data with network applications, desktop calendars, and other locations where information is stored.
