Mobile Apps have been emerging as one of the most powerful drivers in the recent years. Any product offering which does not integrate with Smart phones is definitely on its way of facing serious resistance in market penetration. Savvion Business Manager from Progress seems to have overlooked the fact in recent years. What's surprising is that the version 3.0 of Savvion (Current Production release is 7.x) actually claimed to have an integration with Biz Mobile although I am not aware of a working version of the same. Organizations that have huge Savvion infrastructure are struggling to have an integration with Smart Phones and similar devices, Blackberry being one of the major phones being sought for.

This white paper intends to showcase some of the approaches in which Savvion Business Manager could be integrated with Mobile Devices with focus on Blackberry. Our overall approach assumes that Cellphone requirement pertains to task Approvals/Completions rather than Business Process Modeling etc.
