Data Synchronization XML Web Services: On-line and Off-line data collection
Using XML Web Services and SQL Server we have developed a data management layer that allows organizations requiring data collection from locations with limited internet connectivity. This synchronization engine allows users to access a fully function copy of the corporate web application while offline. Users may then synchronize the information with the master server when a connection is available. This has proved to be particularly useful for field staff using laptops in remote regions for extended periods of time.
  
This solution provides a number of benefits aside from the ability to collect information in a disconnected environment. By using the same application interface user training is minimized and provides consistent enforcement of data collection rules as per the application defined business logic. This method also allows for more robust protection against information loss due to stolen equipment since the data stored at offsite locations is encrypted on the SQL Server. Information is further protected using context-based synchronization which limits the information deployed in the field to only that information relevant to the given location.
