PalmSource to Present Wireless Everywhere Vision
PalmSource today announced David Nagel, PalmSource president and CEO, is presenting at the Gartner Symposium and ITxpo in Orlando, Florida. During the Vendor Solution Presentation (VSP), PalmSource will demonstrate how Palm Powered devices deliver enterprise-grade solutions for mission critical mobile business application deployment.
PalmSource's Vendor Solution Presentation (VSP) entitled "Simply Wireless for the Enterprise" takes place on Tuesday, October 19, at 4:30 p.m. EDT (1:30 p.m. PDT) in the Osprey Room at the Swan Hotel.
The Company will showcase PalmSource Mail for BlackBerry Connect, a client solution that brings Blackberry push-based email and data connectivity to Palm Powered smart mobile devices. PalmSource will also demonstrate IBM WebSphere Everyplace Connection Manager (WECM) for Palm OS, a mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution that encrypts data and allows mobile users to roam seamlessly and securely between any wired or wireless network on a Palm Powered smart mobile device.
"We believe PalmSource's strength as a leading mobile platform and wireless solutions provider will foster growth for the entire Palm Powered economy looking to capitalize on the burgeoning enterprise market," said David Nagel, president and CEO of PalmSource, Inc. "By delivering an enterprise-grade operating system and aligning with industry-leading partners such as IBM and RIM, PalmSource is further strengthening its leadership position in the enterprise market."
Launched earlier this year, Palm OS Cobalt is designed to provide the foundation for next generation smart mobile devices by offering advanced enterprise-grade features including: multitasking and multithreading architecture; extensible communication and multimedia frameworks; robust system level security and a best-in-class development tool chain.
Announced at the Company's second annual Euro DevCon last month, PalmSource is making available to Palm OS software developers the email API that will be released with the first version of PalmSource Mail for BlackBerry Connect. The email API is designed to enable developers to leverage the secure BlackBerry email transport to create secure mobile data applications such as customer relationship management (CRM), sales force automation (SFA), supply chain management (SCM) and mobile field services for the enterprise environment on Palm Powered smartphones and wireless devices.
In addition, PalmSource is collaborating with IBM to provide Java technology for Palm OS and make it available to Palm OS licensees and software developers. As part of this collaboration, PalmSource has licensed IBM's WebSphere Everyplace Micro Environment (WEME) Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) certified runtime environment for integration into Palm OS and IBM's WebSphere Studio Device Developer (WSDD) toolset. PalmSource is also working with IBM to enable JSR 75 for PDA integration and JSR 172 for Web services integration on Palm Powered mobile devices running the Java technology for Palm OS.
Mobile computing has emerged as one of the key priorities for businesses seeking to facilitate mobile workforce productivity and ensure a higher return on investment (ROI). Palm Powered smart mobile devices are designed to deliver on user demands for ease of use, personalization and elegance while executing on enterprise requirements for flexibility, security, and interoperability with existing IT infrastructure. Palm OS is one of the most widely accepted mobile data operating system, appearing on 88 percent of enterprise mobile computing standards lists (Mindwave Research and Customer Insights, 2003). Combined with wireless solutions, today's next generation Palm Powered smart mobile devices are helping companies in numerous vertical industries improve the way they do business.
