|There are many technical
challenges to successfully deploy a mobile application: keep costs low, simplify
deployment, handle changes, problem determination and resolution, and capacity and
scalability of back-end systems. IBM has met these challenges with the introduction of DB2
Universal Database Satellite Edition. The solution is oriented for both mobile (laptop
users) and occasionally connected workplaces (branch offices). IBM will discuss the
functionality of the satellite database system, bi-directional update anywhere replication
and simplified configuration management capabilities for DB2 Satellite Edition.
