Officer, SoftSource Corporation

The Pub Talk begins at 6:00 p.m.
The current mobile computing world is full of challenges. Significant
differences exist in the speed, latency, availability, and dependability
of wireless networks. Handheld devices vary wildly in terms of displays,
operating systems, user interfaces and performance characteristics.
It seems as though new content creation and delivery methods are
introduced on a monthly basis. This rapidly changing world makes
it difficult for decision makers whose choices today need to be
viable well into the future.
Rick Brennan will briefly discuss these challenges and demonstrate
an approach to handling mobile content that allows for interactive
access to existing Web, CAD, and other document file types as well
as the capability to create very efficient and powerful XML-based
mobile content applications. SoftSource's ClearView suite of products
represent a class of mobile solutions that enable effective use
of existing content and content creation tools while opening the
door to techniques for creating impressive new user experiences.
