Mobile devices are increasingly being used in business. This includes using a smart phone to check e-mail and connecting remotely to an office computer with a tablet. In many ways, mobile devices are powering connectivity and productivity for workers in the field.


Tablets represent the greatest anytime, anywhere opportunities for business mobility. By using business applications on the larger tablet screen, employees can better access all of the data they need in order to conduct business on the road.   With the release of RPAS 15.0, Fusion Client based applications are now supported for mobile devices using Apple iOS 7 and iOS 8, with Safari browser. No Flash player is required in order to run features such as Dynamic Position Maintenance or Consumer Decision Trees, as these are rendered in HTML5 on mobile devices.


A document is now available in My Oracle Support that provides information on the similarities and the differences between accessing RPAS applications on a PC and accessing them a mobile device in terms of ease of use, performance, and security.   Separate documents are available for RPAS 15.0 and RPAS 15.0.1.
