    MobileDataforce™ Releases New Version of Intercue Mobility Suite for Pocket PCs, Palm OS and Tablet PCs

    MobileDataforce™, the leading provider of rapid application development solutions for mobile environments (RADS-ME), announced today the release of its latest version of the Intercue Mobility Suite, the company’s powerful XML toolkit for developing and publishing mobile business applications and electronic forms to handheld computers. Key features added to the new version include support for Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, such as auto-updated lists, diagramming tools, digital signature support, and customized button sizes and database integration configurations. The Intercue suite also now allows mobile applications to be dynamically updated across the workforce when changes are made in the enterprise database.  

    MobileDataforce takes a consultative role in developing solutions for its customers and constantly seeks feedback to enhance its offerings. Intercue Mobility Suite has been used by many companies in “hard hat” industries such as field engineering, facilities management, utility companies, field inspection, heavy construction, etc., in addition to several healthcare-related organizations. These customers have leveraged the power of Intercue to develop their own mobile business applications and forms used by on-the-go employees equipped with handheld computers such as Pocket PC, Palm OS, and Tablet PC devices. Each new version of Intercue is in response to these companies’ feedback and requests.

    “Our focus is helping the people wearing the hard hats to be even more productive,” said Kevin Benedict, CEO of MobileDataforce™. “The latest version accomplishes that goal by empowering our customers with faster applications that are dynamically updated, and a more flexible development environment that enables a larger range of applications to be deployed to the field.”

    Systems integrators who assist companies with development and implementation of mobility solutions are likewise pleased with the new features they find with Intercue Mobility Suite. “Our clients are thrilled that we can cost-effectively deliver mobile solutions using the Intercue Mobility Suite,” said David Krumholz, principal at Strand Management in New Jersey, a top provider of mobility solutions to the enterprise market. “We can design a single application or electronic form that will universally work on a range of devices and it is easier than ever to automatically synchronize the data collected in the field back to our clients’ central databases. We especially appreciate how MobileDataforce responds whenever we report real-world user experiences and needs by continually adding helpful functionality with each new version.” (Source: Press Release)

    Getting Real Time with Mike Hall

    "So, one of the first things that I asked Mike during our conversation was, what are some of the important changes that software developers targeting devices will want to get up to speed on or be ready to take advantage of that he sees coming? Mike pointed out that the two most important things that he saw coming in the near future where Visual Studio 2005 and version 2.0 of the .NET Compact Framework. This next version of the development environment is important because it merges native and managed code development into one tool and into a single IDE, however, he finds the next release of the Compact Framework exciting because of the new functionality that it will provide developers. One of his favourite new additions in 2.0 is the serial communications class. Turning the focus to embedded developers, Mike mentioned that they will soon benefit from the release of Windows XP Embedded Service Pack 2 which is currently available as a technology preview. The service pack will bring features like the firewall and security update enhancements found in Service Pack 2 for XP as well as things like enhanced write filter support. Mike acknowledged that recently released Windows CE 5.0 is already shipping, so we are not going to see a new version of that OS for a while yet, but stressed that the important thing to take away is Microsoft's continued duality of the two operating systems. He often gets the question "why two operating systems", and he is quick to point out that each has distinct advantages that make one or the other more appropriate under certain circumstances. Mike feels that the multiple processor core support for X86, MIPS, SH4 and the ARM families along with CE's true Real-time support and superior battery management are the key differentiators between CE and XP Embedded, which is strictly X86, not a Real-time OS, and is not ideal for power management. Looking further down the road, he says the duality will continue and mentioned that Longhorn Embedded and the next generation of Windows CE are already in the works." (Source: Dwayne Lamb, Mobidogs)
