Data Synchronization and Conflict Resolution Can Be Hard, But a New Approach Using Deferred Updating Simplifies the Implementation
by Dr. Martin Heller
Building mobile apps that can work offline is no longer a “nice-to-have” feature – it’s become a must-have. According to a recent survey, 78% of enterprise architects have plans to build apps that require offline support or data caching. But, there is a still a great deal of mystery surrounding what exactly makes building mobile applications that work offline - and properly sync data, resolve server conflicts, etc - so difficult. In this white paper, we'll break down what can occur if a mobile application is not properly designed for offline use and the problems that arise with a simplistic server wins/client wins approach to data synchronization and conflict resolution.
