Oracle has unveiled Database Lite 10g, a database designed for mobile use on laptops and personal digital assistants.

Jacob Christfort, Oracle chief technical officer and vice-president of mobile and wireless products, said, "Companies are constantly looking for new ways of gaining competitive advantage and reducing costs by streamlining their business processes.

"Making information available directly and in real time to employees on the front line - serving or selling to customers - is an increasingly critical step to gaining such efficiencies.

Oracle said the database builds on its server grid computing initiative by letting users share changes and synchronise mobile data with a back-end server.

Meta Group analyst Jack Gold, said, "As mobile devices change from purely personal devices to capable business tools, organisations must deploy applications built on a flexible business-class platform capable of supporting current user needs, while allowing for future enhancements and connectivity for a variety of business requirements."

The database can run on any wireless network and is managed from a central database console.
