Word came in today from good friend and fellow Ottawa resident, Idokorro Mobile, that its Citrix Presentation Server Client for BlackBerry has won the Grand Prize in the BlackBerry Developer Challenge competition sponsored by AT&T. The solution gives BlackBerry and Citrix users the ability to access and use any Citrix-published Windows application on their BlackBerry devices (i.e. Microsoft Office Suite, SAP, PeopleSoft, Crystal Reports). Better still, users also have full access to the Desktop, allowing them to view graphical windows and control the mouse and keyboard.
Here’s what RIM had to say about the product:
â€œBy providing mobile access to Windows applications published on the Citrix Presentation Server, Idokorroâ€™s software can significantly increase mobile productivity and flexibility,â€ said Jeff McDowell, Vice President, Global Alliances, Research In Motion.
Idokorro has long been recognized as the premier developer of BlackBerry solutions. We’ll actually be doing an interview with Idokorro’s CEO and President, Rob Woodbridge, next week at WES, so stay tuned.
