Abstract

A lot of research has been done under the subject of data synchronization between a mobile database and a server-side database. To the best of our knowledge, little or no publications exist that review research problems faced under this field. In this paper, we explore the current research challenges in data synchronization between a mobile database and a server-side database. A systematic review method was employed in gathering the literature from reputable conference proceedings and electronic journals. Specifically, this paper will guide future researchers in the field to propose new solutions for the existing problems in data synchronization of mobile database.
