If your application requires access to Bayer informational systems then consideration must be given to connectivity: secure, reliable and fast backend connections from mobile devices cannot be taken for granted. There are two main approaches: direct connections and middleware.


Direct connections

Direct connections are suitable for simple access to single systems using existing APIs but can quickly become complicated if several systems or services such as logging are required.



Middleware is suitable where robust connections to multiple systems are required. For internal apps you can use either the existing Kony or SAP SMP solutions or develop your own custom middleware.
