In this interview with Zhiming Xue “Z”, Mick Herres, VP of Technology, Joe Herres, VP of Product, and Lisa Ruff, business development manager, discussed what they had done to extend SharePoint capabilities to the mobile platform beyond what SharePoint 2007 and 2010 provide out of the box. Using the SharePoint’s solution framework, they created custom APIs and browser-based applications for smart phones and packaged them into a deployable and customizable solution called “Mobile Entrée”. As a result, users can experience rich and interactive SharePoint capabilities such as document management, tasks and lists, and Excel Services on their smart phones including the newly released Windows Phone 7 devices. And developers can use their licensed APIs to further customize or create browser-based applications for supported smart phones.
