We are witnessing a profound change in the global information infrastructure that has the potential to fundamentally impact many facets of our life. An important aspect of the evolving infrastructure is the seamless, ubiquitous wireless connectivity which engenders continuous interactions between people and interconnected computers. A challenging area of future ubiquitous wireless computing is the area of providing mobile users with integrated Personal Information Services and Applications (PISA). In this paper, a wireless client/server computing architecture will be discussed for the delivery of PISA. Data management issues such as transactional services and cache consistency will be examined under this architecture.
