The advances of wireless networking technologies and mobile devices has prompted many modern enterprises to look for management information systems to remotely monitor and control of their company operations in order to increase their flexibility and competitiveness in the market. Multi-agent modeling has emerged as a powerful technology for dealing with cooperation and decision-making processes in distributed information system applications. In this paper, we proposed a Mobile-enterprise Multi-Agent Paradigm (MMAP) which is an intelligent multiagent-based system combined with wireless VPN technology to provide various management operations to senior executives by PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) with wireless data networks. To demonstrate how the architecture can be built, the data collection agent, one of the primary component-ts of the proposed paradigm, is developed into a prototype implementation for part of the MMAP.
