iOra unveils offline viewer of Sharepoint Team Services

At Microsoft's IT Forum in Denmark, iOra launched Mobile Intranet for Microsoft Sharepoint Team Services to enable disconnected access to the collaborative environment, writes Eric Doyle.

Sharepoint Team Services (STS) offers ad hoc workgroups a customisable template to create their own Web sites for storing information and messages relating to their projects.

iOra argues that the ability to download complete Sharepoint sites for offline viewing saves money by reducing connect times. Geoff Wells, international marketing manager for iOra, said, "Mobile Intranet copies the data and structure of the site, compresses it and stores it on a notebook. When updates are requested, only the changed data is downloaded."

The company has already released a version of its offline viewer for Microsoft's Sharepoint Portal Server and has added the latest package to take advantage of the millions of registered users of Frontpage 2002 that Microsoft claims have downloaded their free copies of STS.

Mobile Intranet allows offline contributions to the STS site to be added when the user next connects. This can add the information directly to the site or merely pass it to an editor designated the task of vetting material for inclusion.
