Abstract

The alliance with mobile device cloud computing technology promises new ways of developing business application. Using web and cloud technology, it is possible to transfer a small part of secured business data from cloud to the small storage mobile devices. However, it is challenging to keep secure data in offline mode when the web application is unable to connect to the cloud and sync those offline data at online mode. The paper discusses architecture of cloud-based mobile application. The proposed architecture helps us to develop cloud-based mobile application. Special consideration of low memory and network connectivity on the mobile device is taken into account. We present various challenges to design a cloud-based mobile application, store the data in a secured manner at offline mode and sync those at online mode. This would greatly improve enterprise productivity even when users are working offline.
