If all CRM applications were rolled out in that fashion, you'd bring more value and have more success." Of course, he says, once you get those 10 things right, you can do more.

The CRM on the Go technology offered by iEnterprises lets you deploy in-house software as well as Salesforce.com, Siebel and most other commercial CRM applications on BlackBerry handhelds, and it can be bought as either a service or as packaged software. Expect to see CRM on the Go on Windows Mobile devices in Q3 and on Symbian-based handhelds by year's end. Write up your top 10 list of got-to-have mobile features and then stop scribbling. Annual subscription pricing starts at US$200 per user.

  • WiMax in focus

    Premium-Inhalt. There's probably no wireless topic today that's more confusing than WiMax. It doesn't help that there are really two WiMax specifications (one of which doesn't even exist yet), or that the very name WiMax implies a relationship with that other "Wi" that isn't even there. So, let's start at the beginning. We generally organize wireless technologies by range -- the effective distance that the technology, when implemented, is designed to cover. This is the most important parameter in radio design; range determines many key elements of a given product, including physical size, power consumption, cost and the type of antenna required. Less range means smaller, cheaper and (usually) better battery life as well. It also means we can reuse the frequencies involved a short distance away, making the best use of the scarce resource that is the electromagnetic spectrum.
