Figure 16 illustrates the general architecture of Mobile Analytics. You will use two different analytics platforms, each with a set of components. One platform is on the enterprise server on your network and one is on the mobile machine. The difference between the enterprise server components and mobile server components is that the mobile components are configured for a single user.
The following list describes the types of graphics in Figure 16:
Typically, a Mobile Analytics user logs in to Siebel Business Analytics Web on the enterprise server, opens the mobile page, and chooses a mobile application to download. The Disconnected Analytics Application Manager starts on the mobile machine and begins coordinating with Siebel Business Analytics Web (on the enterprise server) to download the mobile application. Figure 16 illustrates this scenario.
The cylinder labeled Files for Mobile Applications represents the location on the enterprise server for the mobile repository, the mobile Web Catalog, and the SQL scripts associated with the mobile application. The numbers of the dashed lines in Figure 16 correspond to the numbers in the following list:
If the synchronization operation completes successfully, the user can click the Disconnected Analytics Application Manager's Start button to start the mobile application on the mobile machine. Note, however, that although users can download multiple applications to their mobile machines, they can only run one application at a time. Mobile Analytics does not support many concurrently running applications. Therefore, starting a mobile application will result in shutting down any currently running mobile application.
