SAP has demonstrated the first fruits of its partnership with 3Com subsidiary Palm Computing at its Sapphire annual user conference in Los Angeles, with a solution to allow 3Com's mobile devices to access R/3 applications.
The two companies developed the technology with Symbal Technologies, and Abaco International Group, and it allows mobile workers to access information held on R/3.
SAP and 3Com claim it is ideal for applications such as salesforce automation, and in industries where portability is crucial, such as retail, transportation, parcel and postal delivery, manufacturing and healthcare.
SAP is not the only enterprise resource planning software supplier to move into the palm device market, with Oracle last week announcing that it is shrinking some of its front office modules to fit on a Palmpilot, allowing users to move information between Palmpilot applications and Oracle's Front Office suite, as well as querying other Oracle applications.
