Abstract

Due to increasing spread of mobile equipment many companies face the opportunity to supply their employees with mobile enterprise applications. Since a 'mobile enterprise application' is not (!) just a 'mobile' enterprise application the selection of a suited system architecture is not trivial. Mobile enterprise applications entail different requirements (esp. concerning security), different platforms and different concepts for management. The paper analyses distinct requirements of mobile enterprise applications, discusses concepts for managing mobile enterprise applications and evaluates major mobile platforms. Thus companies get empowered to select a suited combination of platform and architecture that support the security and management requirements for their mobile enterprise application.
