707 Creating a Mobile Reader ... and Beyond!
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, June 25
Many large enterprise and government customers use Motorola mobile devices for their employees, and they require the security to control any internet access or application downloads. We wanted to give the end-users access to their documentation in the field when they required it at the moment of need. Off the shelf reader products could not be adjusted to meet our needs or integrated with other software with the flexibility for these requirements.
In this session participants will learn how Motorola Solutions Learning created our own application to bring content to the end user more quickly. You will explore how the initial custom user-guide applications began to be included in the product image directly from the factory, making it available out of the box, and how the project then developed into a catalog-based approach, which allows for multiple documents to be accessed and updated from the same application.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to choose to develop internally versus purchasing off the shelf
- How to use open standards to develop products
- How to create reusable components for your applications
- Lessons learned from our journey
Audience: Intermediate designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
Technology discussed in this session: Android, DITA, Open Standards, HTML5, Motorola Solutions ET1, Motorola Solutions TC55, and Motorola Solutions MC40.
