Aether's ScoutWare Brings Power to Palm's HotSync Server


June 1, 2000

Aether Software, the products division of Aether Systems, Inc. (AETH), this week announced that its ScoutWare data synchronization and device management technology has been integrated into the Palm HotSync Server.

The integration of Aether Software's ScoutWare technology is deigned to enable Palm HotSync Server customers to make use of flexible handheld and application management tools along with broad synchronization capabilities — elements that Aether Software considers critical for mobile computing success in the enterprise.

HotSynch Server enables IT organizations to synchronize handheld data with corporate databases and mission-critical applications, including groupware solutions like Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes. Palm handhelds can also be managed like any other device on the network. Furthermore, as the Palm HotSync Server offers customization and development capabilities on an open platform, IT organizations with development resources can extend in-house applications to handheld users.

Aether Software offers software solutions that extend the accessibility of enterprise computing via wireless devices. The ScoutWare family of products, along with the new addition of Aether Intelligent Messaging (AIM), enables the infrastructure to deliver vital corporate information to anyone, at any time, anywhere, and to any device.

ScoutWare solutions are currently used to assist organizations worldwide in healthcare, retail, financial, government, and other industry sectors. In addition to its partnership with Palm, Aether Software has formed major business alliances with Sybase, Computer Associates, and TIBCO.

System requirements for the Palm HotSync Server are Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 4 or higher; Palm OS 2.x or higher; a 133 MHz, 128 MB RAM, 60 MB disk space; and a Network Interface Card with TCP/IP protocol.

Palm HotSync Server started shipping this week. It is available through CompuCom, Hartford Computer Group, Inacom, and Pomeroy.
