Oracle has announced new mobile interoperability with Nokia devices and technology, as a result of the ongoing cooperation and co-development between the two companies.
Oracle has validated the Nokia Intellisync Device Management solution working with Oracle’s Siebel CRM platform, Oracle Database Lite is now available on Symbian Version 9/S60 Version 3 enabling enterprises to mobilise their applications using Nokia devices and Siebel Wireless is now available on the Nokia E90 Communicator, an Eseries device designed for enterprise users.
Since 2003 Oracle and Nokia have leveraged their leadership positions to accelerate the adoption of mobile technology into the enterprise. IT organisations gain maximum benefits from the ability to develop, implement, and manage their mobile applications in a secure and efficient manner, enabling cost savings, increased operational efficiency, and higher customer satisfaction.
Nokia Intellisync Device Management complements deployments of Siebel Wireless and Siebel Handheld mobile applications with advanced device management functionalities such as device configuration, application management including over the air provisioning, asset collection, help desk, theft-loss protection and recovery.
In addition to these features, validation of Nokia Intellisync Device Management solution with Siebel Handheld applications enables mobile users to reduce expenses and save time through features allowing them to easily create new users, send and accept new device management profiles, set up GPRS/EDGE network settings and push out URLs to Siebel Wireless that aide in updates or locking out, or wiping devices as needed.
The new Oracle Database Lite now supports Symbian 9 (S60 v3). With Oracle Database Lite, mobile devices can operate in occasionally-connected environments, periodically synchronising with back-end database servers.
Oracle Database Lite also provides centralised application, user and device provisioning, as well as management and mobile application tools, enabling developers to build the latest mobile enterprise applications for the leading mobile platform.
The Nokia E90 Communicator, developed for the world’s leading smartphone platform S60, includes the benefits of a laptop in a pocket-size device. By supporting the S60 Open Source Software (OSS) browser, Siebel Wireless is available on the Nokia E90.
Nokia E90 Communicator provides mobile workers with ubiquitous enterprise users access to Siebel Sales Wireless, Siebel Field Service Wireless, Siebel Partner Relationship Management Wireless and Siebel eService Wireless, providing them maximum flexibility for viewing and editing CRM data.
