Here at Agrium, we have recently completed a mobile application that is in use at our production facilities. During the course of creating this application, many technical hurdles were overcome.

 

In the following series of blogs, I will be discussing some SAP Netweaver Mobile 7.1 topics. I will begin with handheld connectivity and, over time, describe many of the advanced features of the mobile infrastructure. I will also include some of the pitfalls and tough practical choices that we’ve encountered.
