22 July 2006 by axxxr
DataViz announced today a partnership with Sony Ericsson to provide Exchange ActiveSync connectivity for Sony Ericsson's new Symbian OS based UIQ 3.0 smartphones, both the M600 and P990.
The Exchange ActiveSync mailbox and synchronization engine included on these new smartphones is powered by DataViz' RoadSync which provides secure, wireless and "Direct Push" synchronization of corporate e-mail, calendar, contacts and attachments from Exchange Server 2003. Both DataViz and Sony Ericsson are official licensees of the Exchange ActiveSync protocol from Microsoft.
According to industry analyst firm,The Radicati Group, 33% of corporations worldwide currently use Microsoft Exchange as their insourced corporate messaging solution, and this market share is anticipated to rise to 39% by 2009. Additionally, by 2009, the corporate wireless e-mail install base is projected to increase from 6.5 million to 123 million*. Given the expected growth of both corporate Exchange mailboxes along with corporate wireless e-mail, the inclusion of Exchange ActiveSync functionality allows Sony Ericsson and DataViz to deliver an integrated push e-mail solution for more enterprise customers who rely on Exchange for their messaging needs.
"Secure mobile access to e-mail, calendar and other business data are core requirements for mobile professionals who need to maintain communication with clients and colleagues while out of the office," said Henrik Voigt, Director, Head of Enterprise Solutions, Sony Ericsson. "Working closely with DataViz has allowed us to achieve a tight integration of Exchange ActiveSync functionality into our portfolio of smartphones and solutions."
