JUNE 6'Workgroups can adapt Palm handheld devices to make database modifications in the field with Palm OS-compatible synchronization software from Synchrologic Inc. of Atlanta.

The iMobile Data Synchronization add-on to the Palm HotSync Server from Palm Inc. of Santa Clara, Calif., is part of Synchrologic's iMobile Suite for mobile data synching, backup, and file and software distribution. It works with Oracle, IBM DB2 Universal Server, Microsoft SQL Server and Access, and Sybase SQL Anywhere database servers, and with the object stores of Microsoft Windows CE and Palm OS.

Synchrologic officials said the iMobile sync add-on, which costs $139 per user for 100 users, links directly to Palm HotSync Server via its published application programming interface. The iMobile Suite also works with devices running WinCE. The administrator's PC software uses so-called publish and subscribe technology to define which users receive which files. More details about the software appear on the Web at
