Spyglass today announced a strategic agreement with Riverbed Technologies that will introduce Spyglass Prism to mainstream enterprise computing. Spyglass Prism is an Internet content delivery platform that optimizes Web content for viewing on various handheld devices. Riverbed, the developers of the ScoutWare mobile enterprise software suite, will incorporate Spyglass Prism technology to add Internet connectivity to their overall strategy of extending business information systems to mobile workers. Mobile workers will now be capable of accessing the Web to obtain mission-critical information from handheld computing devices. For instance, sales people at remote locations can gather product listings found on their company's intranet page. Similarly, workers on the factory floor can use their mobile devices to instantaneously update inventory information located on a back-end server. Other benefits resulting from data synchronization will be greater work efficiency, as paperwork is reduced and time-consuming calls from field to office are eliminated. Overall, the partnership between Spyglass and Riverbed presents IT organizations with the ability to provide their workers with access to corporate applications and intranets from any location via a handheld device -- a truly connected solution that has limitless potential. To find out more about the Spyglass/Riverbed partnership or about mobile data solutions in general, please call Erica LeBorgne, Spyglass public relations coordinator, at 630-245-6624.
