CA To Develop Software Products for Managing Mobile Devices Utilizing

Filed under
News

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., January 10, 2005 – Funambol, the mobile open
source software company, today announced that CA, one of the world's
largest information technology (IT) management software companies,
has licensed Funambol’s mobile application server for use in its
products targeted at managing smartphone devices in the enterprise.

At its recent CA World user conference, CA previewed new management
technologies under development that address the management of
smartphones. “Enterprise IT organizations know they have to do a
better job of managing and securing the smartphones they’re using to
maximize the productivity of their mobile workforces,” said Marc
Camm, vice president of smartphone solutions at CA. “By utilizing
Funambol’s standards-based mobile application server, CA will enable
customers to manage and secure their smartphones in a common manner
with their other enterprise assets – thereby simplifying operations
and ensuring consistent implementation of management across the
enterprise.”

Mobile email continues to gain momentum in the enterprise, driving
increased use of sophisticated and diverse mobile handsets. The
multitude of mobile device types has made device management a serious
issue in business networks. Systems managers need to be able to
remotely monitor, configure and manage mobile handsets and are
leveraging new standards from the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) to
accomplish these critical functions. Funambol’s mobile open source
application server is the standard implementation of the OMA Device
Management standard (popularly known as SyncML) that supports a
compatible, ubiquitous environment for management of mobile phones
irrespective of handset vendor.

“The diversity of mobile handsets has increased the complexity of
managing fleets of devices among networks,” said Fabrizio Capobianco,
CEO of Funambol. “Funambol’s mobile open source software eases device
management by allowing customers such as CA to provide a central,
standardized and compatible environment for the devices and networks
they support.”
