ERP Data On Mobile Made Easy

Application platform and business integration company Magic Software Enterprises has announced a new mobile development package for systems integrators and users of enterprise ERP systems, including SAP and Oracle JD Edwards.

Attempting to address the fact that combining data from multiple systems or bringing ERP data to mobile devices necessitates complex device-specific software, Magic's uniPaaS application platform and iBOLT integration suite is designed to help build ERP-based mobile enterprise applications more easily.

Engineered to run on Windows Mobile devices, Magic's solution claims to allow ERP data to be integrated on the device itself or on the back-end system. With data from multiple ERP systems consolidated onto a single mobile screen, in theory, a more powerful decision making process is enabled.

"This mobile package for ERP is an efficient method for porting heavy ERP system data to mobile devices while adding value to that data. Not only are you creating a rich mobile front-end application with fewer resources using the uniPaaS cloud-enabled application platform, but the use of the iBOLT integration suite allows users to extend and composite the ERP data with other data without re-working the existing business logic. The process requires far less system testing and is cheaper and quicker than alternative methods currently available," said Magic Software's David Akka.
