Informix Software has become a Symbian technology partner, and ported its Cloudscape database to allows Symbian users to access data and corporate applications even when disconnected from the network.
Jim Foy, president, Informix Software, said: “We have the web-based technology to ensure the automatic exchange and synchronisation of information across all mobile devices. Our technology powers some of the world’s largest networks, and as e-commerce demand rises, we are ideally placed to enable third party Symbian developers to create more advanced e-commerce solutions for the wireless market.”
Owned by Ericsson, Matsushita, Motorola, Nokia and Psion, Symbian aims to create a mass market for next generation mobile phones.
Colly Myers, CEO of Symbian, which develops software for next generation mobile phones, said: “Wireless information devices will soon be one of the primary devices to access the Internet. Businesses are looking for safe methods to obtain remote access to information.”
