The essence of enterprise mobility is the secure extension of the critical data from an organization’s back end systems out to the mobile devices used by employees. Windows Phone is an enterprise-class smartphone with the capabilities needed to empower employees to create an agile, real-time enterprise.
At TechEd Europe, I walked the delegates through all the elements required to build an end-to-end mobile line of business solution. I demonstrated how to use SQL Server 2012 and IIS as mobile middleware where SSIS adapters facilitate the aggregation of data from multiple back end systems and the ASP.NET Web API exposes that data via wireless-friendly, REST + JSON web services. From there, I demonstrated how to securely publish that data out to the Internet without the need for a VPN using UAG. I wrapped things up by showing how Windows Phone apps can consume data and store it offline so employees can continue to be productive in the absence of network connectivity.
