Odata- Managing Client Specific Information Efficiently

The widespread use of smart phones and emergence of new operating systems like Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7 has changed the ways in which mobile applications were developed earlier. To build client friendly applications, the use of odata (open data protocol) for questioning as well as up gradation of data has become widespread in recent years.

A major benefit of using odata for mobile applications development is that it is easy and flexible for application as well building upon existing technologies like HTTP and JSON. It also offers a client library which makes it easy for developers to create applications which consume odata services. 

As in case of WCF Data Service client library used in normal applications based on .NET framework, the Odata WP7 client library enables developers to correspond with Odata services using entity classes and strong typed proxy in Windows Phone 7 applications.

What is even more interesting to note is the fact that odata is also used to update or delete any type of client based information in SAP CRM applications. This in turn helps to improve the sales figures of companies as they can track the changing needs of clients, improve the quality of their products and services and come up with better quality of products and services.

To ensure that the applications which you use serve your business requirements, you need to identify those companies which can provide you with cloud solutions which enable you to effectively connect with your consumers. Therefore, you need to find out whether the software they have developed so far are suitable for your business needs or not.
