Join this series as we look at Microsoft SQL Server 2008 as a productive data platform. Throughout this series, we use Contoso (Container Overseas Shipping Operation) LTD as our scenario customer while we explore the features that make SQL Server 2008 this platform. Contoso is a shipping company; they arrange the shipping of all kinds of items around the globe, from small individual items to large manufactured items. Contoso has seen growth in its business over the past years, especially in the movement of goods from China around the world. While Contoso is happy with their in-house applications and believe they provide significant business advantage over competitors, Contoso wants to ensure that these applications are running on the best productive platform to maintain this advantage, especially as their business grows worldwide.  In this session , we look at how Contoso is empowering its mobile workforce to work and synchronize data when away from the office. Contoso has agents and employees out in the field, either delivering or collecting consignments, inspecting consignments, or visiting customers to quote jobs. These field employees use a variety of devices, from Pocket PCs to tablet PCs. To ensure that these employees have the latest information, Contoso is updating its applications to take advantage of the Microsoft Sync Framework to let these devices store data locally, run executables, and sync the data later. Join us as we cover the Sync Framework and describe how to best create these types of applications.
