Wireless Workgroup Applications
Now there are a number workgroup applications that are being developed
on messaging platforms like Microsoft Exchange or Lotus's Domino Server.
These applications allow members of a workgroup to access information on
workgroup calendaring (scheduling meetings), status of collaborative projects,
research and development, time and expense reporting, customer service and
other activities where multiple members of a workgroup participate in approval
process. Because many of these people are mobile, they need to access this
information wirelessly from the field or from their vehicles while they are
moving from customer to customer. One example of such a workgroup server is
from a company called ThinAirApps. ThinAirApps has the following two distinct
products that address this part of mobile computing application marketplace:
- ThinAir Server
SDK (Software Development Kit) that can be used by enduser organizations,
application developers or systems integrators to build custom applications.
