Are the organizations full proofed with stronger investments in the architecture which are service oriented, better than the apps for mobile phones?
Zaheer Hamza of Tigerspike did a commendable job of connecting the dots between the two major parameters of technology; emerging app space in mobile and the service oriented thought processing.
SOA discussions have been rejuvenated by the tremendous in mobile usage with the enterprise cloud. Hamza points out the factual situation of collaboration of the services at back-end whenever one starts to speak about the enterprise solutions for mobile. SOA is nothing but a particular manner in which the back-end-services are designed in order to support the mobiles or any other type of client interface. This is extremely important in the today’s era of IT; especially when the professionals are completely clueless of future end user devices. So, it is rightly said that, “a well-oriented IT architecture should be suffice to support everything and anything.”
SOA is not only the best way but also the only ultimate way to back the mobile. If it is being spoken about the SOA, we are not only talking merely of the specifically some particular technology; but also a channelized way of thinking that supports the philosophy of deconstructing the applications into essential, reusable and standardized services. The motive of SOA is to come up with multiple functions that are available in the form of services which are flexible enough to be run across almost any type of the device or the system. As the first designing of SOA was done almost a decade ago, nobody could have ever imagined that tons of information and applications would be flowing through the tablets
and the smart phones. But, most of the SOA proponents supposedly recognized that their work would accommodate the devices and the technologies platforms yet to be identified.
And, thus, it has come up to surpass with the current mobile scenario.
A back end that is service oriented surely paves a way for the real time and the reliable information helping the businesses carry on their transactions. Real time information with the better quality of servicing for the end customers could easily be provided with the B2B (business to business) application of mobile. These are some of the amazingly helpful functionalties of the process. Not only this, but also mobile devices could be conveniently used to track the services and inventory shipments availability from various vendors and also ensure the flexible availability of the merchandise at the customer’s end.
In summation to this, real time data also enhances the analytics of the mobile business thereby improving the capabilities of cross-selling. Mobile being one of the most competitive tools for the employees, now plays a vital role in better scheduling and dispatch, customer satisfaction and sales.
