Infowave helps to define landscape, choices for wireless computing

Gartner Mobile Access Wireless Business Conference brings together
wireless industry leaders and Fortune 1000 CTOs to create framework for a
corporation's wireless business strategy

SAN DIEGO, CA, March 26 /CNW/ - Infowave Software, Inc. (TSE: IW), a
global provider of software that connects enterprise applications to wireless
devices, today announced it will showcase its award-winning product suite at
Gartner's Mobile Access, Wireless Business Conference being held in San Diego,
CA, March 26-28. The conference brings together industry experts and leading
wireless companies with over 500 senior IT executives from major US companies
to provide direction and a framework on how their companies can capitalize on
wireless enterprise technology.
"In the next two years, almost two thirds of all companies will implement
a wireless enterprise solution," said Bob Egan, vice president and research
director for mobile and wireless at Gartner. "But along with the rewards,
there are potentially many risks and this conference is designed to provide
companies with a clear direction for making a knowledgeable and successful
decision on their wireless strategy. Wireless industry experts along with
experienced companies in the space will help IT decision makers to better
understand the ins and outs of wireless technology and present real-world
wireless business solutions that work."
As Gartner's research indicates, there exists a significant market
opportunity for companies to provide the wireless software infrastructure for
corporations as they implement their wireless and mobile strategy and
capitalize on this important capability.
Infowave is involved in several aspects of the conference, both as a
platinum sponsor and as a participant in two industry sessions, including one
educational session with an Infowave customer, Mentor Graphics, that focuses
on real experiences in implementing wireless solutions.
"Mentor Graphics is like most large corporations in that we had serious
security, device and wireless network concerns when we started formulating our
strategy for mobile workers," says Tom Herzog, communication tools manager at
Mentor Graphics Corporation. "When our extensive diligence process was finally
over, we knew Infowave was the right choice for us. We've been very successful
in implementing Infowave's wireless solution and are happy to share our
experiences with other companies as they develop their own wireless strategy."
"Infowave is proud to be participating in Gartner's conference to help
clarify the confusion about wireless data and to assist companies in
identifying strategic approaches to mobilizing their workforces," said Thomas
Koll, chief executive officer of Infowave. "Infowave believes that Gartner is
clearly advocating a wireless strategy that provides the most flexible choice
for customers, which means buying a wireless solution from a vendor that
allows customers to make independent decisions about devices, networks and
applications according to their specific needs. The Gartner symposium promises
to provide an excellent forum for information exchange, analysis and comparing
and contrasting competing solutions. We look forward to interacting with
analysts, partners and customers at this important event."
