Here’s an excerpt:
To make it easier for you to take advantage of the real-time synchronization capabilities that Novell Data Synchronizer provides between different applications and mobile devices, the Data Synchronizer Marketplace Web site is now available at www.novell.com/marketplace. The Marketplace provides a place for customers to get the latest information on available Data Synchronizer connectors, find out what connectors will be available soon and request connectors that they need. Developers and vendors can use the Marketplace to promote their connectors, make them more accessible, learn what connectors their customers want them to develop and download the connector SDK.
The Featured Connectors section of the Marketplace promotes and facilitates access to currently available connectors for Novell Data Synchronizer. As of this writing, the available connectors include the Microsoft SharePoint, Mobility, Novell GroupWise, Salesforce.com, and Sugar CRM connectors developed by Novell, which have been described in detail in past articles.
The Featured Connectors page also presents the recently released Notify Mobile Device Management (NotifyMDM) solution. Developed by Notify Technology, the NotifyMDM connector simplifies the centralized management and control of an array of wireless device platforms, such as iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Windows Phone 7, HP/Pal WebOS and some Symbain wireless devices. The connector helps you address your security, visibility and manageability needs for these devices. It also provides a self-service portal that enables your users to manage certain aspects of their devices.
