Oracle announced new mobile interoperability with Nokia devices and technology, as a result of the ongoing cooperation and co-development between the two companies. Oracle Database Lite is available on Symbian Version 9/S60 Version 3 enabling enterprises to mobilize their applications using Nokia E90 Communicator.
The new Oracle Database Lite supports Symbian 9 (S60 v3). With Oracle Database Lite, mobile devices can operate in occasionally-connected environments, periodically synchronizing with back-end database servers. Oracle Database Lite also provides centralized application, user and device provisioning, as well as management and mobile application tools, enabling developers to build the latest mobile enterprise applications for the mobile platform.
The Nokia E90 Communicator, developed for the smartphone platform S60, includes the benefits of a laptop in a pocket-size device. By supporting the S60 Open Source Software (OSS) browser, Siebel Wireless is available on the Nokia E90. Nokia E90 Communicator provides mobile workers with ubiquitous enterprise users access to Siebel Sales Wireless, Siebel Field Service Wireless, Siebel Partner Relationship Management Wireless and Siebel eService Wireless, providing them maximum flexibility for viewing and editing CRM data.
“Over the past five years, Oracle and Nokia have worked together for one common goal – to achieve seamless interoperability between our products and enable developers and end-users to gain the greatest potential from the use of Oracle and Nokia technologies together,” said Anthony Lye, Senior Vice President of CRM Development at Oracle. “Our latest support and capabilities for Siebel CRM Mobile with Nokia technologies and devices helps customers realize further usability, efficiencies, and freedom.”
“Our collaboration with Oracle has been to meet the demands of enterprises – making these developments beneficial not only for enterprise customers and end-users, but for the entire mobile industry,” said Clyde Foster, Vice President, Software & Services, Nokia. “Nokia Intellisync Device Management is a strategic platform for enterprises and service providers to manage mobility, and I am pleased to say that integrating Siebel Handheld applications brings clear benefits to enterprises.”
