You are in IT, and you want to support the demands from business managers and customers for mobile access to applications and data. They want it now!
You know that extending your enterprise applications to mobile device will increase productivity for your employees, consultants, and partners. You know that you can improve the experience for your customers with mobile transactions and self-service.
You have a great IT staff, but they have mobile development experience, and you don’t have budget to add staff or bring in consultants to build mobile apps or add infrastructure.
Even if you could develop mobile apps, how would you deploy them and manage them, and how would alleviate your security concerns once the whole world has access to your data on their smartphones and tablets?
What can you do?
Oracle AppAdvantage will turn your Enterprise Applications and data into a Mobile Enterprise. Oracle AppAdvantage will allow your Java development staff to extend your applications to mobile devices using their existing Java skills. They can develop mobile apps once in the development environment they are used to, and then deploy those apps to iOS and Android mobile devices.

What’s more, Oracle AppAdvantage will allow you to build and deploy mobile apps without adding additional infrastructure. AppAdvantage will allow you to easily extend your Oracle Application environment, and will allow you to easily connect your mobile apps to backend systems using Oracle Service-Oriented Architecture.
