"By partnering with BEA, we will be able to deliver our synchronization services to hundreds of thousands of people simultaneously with the reliability they expect. Our goal with Intellisync.com is to provide a premier synchronization infrastructure for the Internet that allows consumers, for the first time, to keep mobile devices, PC-based applications, Web-based applications and Web-based information constantly synchronized. We've seen the Internet become a vital lifeline for information, and the ability to be connected whether offline or online is of paramount importance."


BEA Tuxedo, the industry-leading e-commerce transaction server for enabling rapid development and deployment of e-commerce systems, supports extremely high volumes of transactions to keep up with the speed of changing business environments. BEA Tuxedo allows companies to rapidly develop reliable, high-performance transactional applications to meet the needs of an integrated e-business. Deploying a reliable e-commerce system is critical to e-business success. BEA Tuxedo technology reduces the time, complexity and risk in developing and deploying e-commerce initiatives.

"We are pleased to partner with Puma Technology, which is leading the way in providing access to Internet data via mobile devices. The incorporation of BEA Tuxedo into Puma's solutions will help deliver the reliability and scalability customers need for everything from browsing the Internet on their mobile devices and conducting e-commerce, to installing Puma's synchronization and data management solutions across the enterprise."
