Colligo Networks announces a plug-in for supporting IBM's newly announced Workplace Client Technology that is designed to enable secure, private database replication and peer-to-peer messaging.Colligo Networks on Monday announced a plug-in that will support IBMs Workplace Client Technology, Micro Editionalso known as Workplace Micro Environment (WCTME) Version 5.7which IBM also announced Monday. Colligos plug-in is designed to enable secure, private database replication and peer-to-peer messaging. The plug-in, named Colligo Enterprise Edition, is slated for fourth-quarter release. According to Barry Jinks, president and CEO of Colligo Networks Inc., the software is designed to take advantage of the "intermittent" mode in the three modes IBM Workplace is designed to cover: connected, disconnected and intermittent modes. Colligo views "intermittent" as a description of when workers are disconnected from a network but connected to their coworkers, as would happen with a team of employees in the fieldfor example, a team of accountants on-site at a client location. In such a scenario, Colligo collaborators could replicate data back and forth via an Ethernet, wireless or any such IP connection.
Jinks described IBMs new Workplace offerings as being revolutionary in that the server-managed client architecture offers the total cost of ownership of a thin-client browser when youre not connected to the Internet.
