Internet Image announced the
beta version of TargetLink, an advanced software and data distribution
package that manages the guaranteed delivery of vital information over the
Dr. Andrew Lee, president, founder and CTO of Internet Image, said:
“TargetLink is a robust distribution system for corporate and enterprise
use. Conventional software distribution and management systems tend to be
complex and require sophisticated network infrastructures, whereas
TargetLink operates over TCP/IP, with a guaranteed delivery model.”
The vendor says that the beta version is being evaluated for final
adjustments to its GUI. In Japan, much of the core functionality of
TargetLink has already been introduced successfully in cooperation with
OEMs and systems integrators. TargetLink uses agent technology to create
two-way links between sender and recipents. It is Java-based, being an
adaptation of Sun MicroSystems’ pure Java implementation of the TCP/IP
network transport layer.
The vendor introduced its BeyondPush technology to the press last month.
BeyondPush differs from traditional push technology by keeping client
profile records in the server and by tracking the outcome of client requests.
