Wireless AudaEnterprise

Despite being a press release full of marketing puff ("extended the flexibility and accessibility of this innovative solution"), this article about wireless AudaEnterprise looks quite interesting for several reasons.

Firstly, the innovative solution isn't so innovative, in that a wireless network is still a network, and people have been carrying wirelessly networked devices around for ages. A minor quibble with the triumphant tone of the article.

Secondly, tablet PCs are involved in a really useful way, which should interest Robert Scoble.

Thirdly, it uses technology to change the way the engineers work, rather than simply supporting the way they currently work.

Fourthly, if estimates are being "produced in half the time normally allowed", this should make a big difference to estimators.
