            Introducing ADT's brand-new e-newsletter, MobileAppTrends
            By ADT Staff 
            ADT's newest e-newsletter is tailored to track developments in 
mobile apps for enterprises. With an expected 50 million end users looking to 
access their companies' applications using wireless handhelds over the next few 
years, the unplugged revolution has begun. MobileAppTrends keeps you plugged in 
to how enterprises are developing, deploying, and managing wireless platforms.

            ADT recently introduced other new e-newsletters, SOATrends and 

            SOATrends covers trends in service-oriented architectures. This new 
e-newsletter will help readers make sense of the myriad Web services and XML 
standards emerging from standards bodies as well as from vendors. The focus 
will be on the ways that standards and best practices can meet the needs of 
architects and developers working on real-world business applications.

            DataTrends, a new e-newsletter from ADT, covers database 
management, data integration and business intelligence tools and applications. 
Interviews and analysis by industry experts help readers navigate the maze of 
issues surrounding management of enterprise information.

            To provide easier access to the content you want, ADT gave 
makeovers to eADT, Java Development Trends, and Programmers Report!

            eADT, the e-newsletter that focused on app dev news and expert 
analysis, has debuted with its new look and its new name, AppTrends. AppTrends 
includes enhancements such as Web search capabilities.

            Java Development Trends, the e-newsletter that covered enterprise- 
level Java development and news from the Java open-source community, has 
premiered as JavaTrends. JavaTrends improves on the original with the latest 
information on emerging Java standards.

            Programmers Report, the e-newsletter that provided tips for 
programming team leaders and coders working in the trenches, has been released 
as ProgrammingTrends. ProgrammingTrends features news, from strategies and 
techniques to tools and utilities.

            SPONSORNEW! Be the first to read "A Guide to Software Configuration 
            As development schedules become even more aggressive and 
requirements constantly change, more incremental or iterative approaches are 
gaining popularity. To learn about the configuration management tools, design 
tools and project management tools which support this change in style, read 
"Guide to Software Configuration Management," from ADT's Lunch Break Series.

            Worldwide manufacturer syncs HQ, sales force with Saratoga Wireless
            By Lana Gates
            Phoenix Contact, a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of 
industrial automation, interconnection and interface solutions, needed an 
enterprise solution to keep its sales force up to date with its headquarters 
without a lot of additional work. The Lotus Notes r5 shop, with U.S. 
headquarters in Harrisburg, Pa., had equipped its sales force with laptops 
where each had its own local database. But that local database had to be 
synchronized and replicated to a central database.

            That created quite a challenge for the sales force that was on the 
road up to five days a week. Replication and synchronization "just didn't 
happen during the week," notes Larry Bassett, IT director. "Information never 
got to the centralized data store until the weekend." Instead, the company had 
a great deal of inefficient communication because its systems weren't up to 

            Phoenix Contact tried PDAs but found they were lacking as far as an 
enterprise solution was concerned. So the company set out to find an end-to-end 
solution that it could deploy quickly, easily integrate with its back-end 
systems and that didn't require a lot of support, Bassett says.

            Microsoft and RIM sign pact for IM and presence
            By ADT Staff
            Microsoft and Research In Motion have announced an agreement to 
provide enterprise instant messaging and presence to BlackBerry subscribers 
based on Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 and BlackBerry 
Enterprise Server.

            Enterprises are using Live Communications Server to deploy IM and 
presence capabilities across their networks and through federated connections 
with other organizations running Live Communications Server. 

            Live Communications Server provides a platform for the development 
of custom real-time communications solutions across PC networks, desktop phone 
systems and mobile devices and is based on Session Initiation Protocol and SIP 
for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions standards.
