Microsoft Corp has accelerated its drive to make SQL Server central to .NET for enterprises, announcing software providing information notifications to mobile devices in addition to desktop-based systems.

Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft's partners have also announced .NET versions of products or .NET-ready versions of their current services. These include Akami Technologies Inc, ComponentSource Inc and FrontRange Solutions Inc.

Appearing at Microsoft's TechEd 2002 conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, Akami announced a .NET version of its EdgeSuite, ComponentSource adopted .NET
Alerts for its public and private marketplaces, and FrontRange demonstrated the next version of its customer relationship management (CRM) software built on .NET.

Microsoft used partners' support as evidence of what it called "huge momentum" around the .NET platform, officially launched just two months ago. Microsoft
launched Visual Studio.NET and .Net Framework at VS Live! in San Francisco, California.

Microsoft announced two products it hopes will further industry momentum. SQL Server CE 2.0 Notification Services, for mobile devices, and SQL Server 2000
Notification Services. These services provide SQL Server developers with ability to deploy and manage short messages such as sports scores. Notification
Services supports deployment of such notifications as Short Message Service (SMS), Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), Windows .Net Alerts for MSN and MSN Messenger. Notification Services should be generally released in the summer.

The company also launched its first commercially available Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and XML web service, MapPoint.NET. This is a program for mapping and location based-basd services for use by ISVs, carriers and portals. MapPoint supports the ability to embed maps, calculate driving directions, and do proximity searches.
