Option 2:  Server-side Synchronisation of SharePoint Tasks, Contacts, Appointments and Issues

Riva Integration Server delivers server-side synchronisation of SharePoint tasks, contacts, appointments and issues for GroupWise. Tasks or contacts updated in SharePoint or GroupWise will automatically be synchronised to the other system (bi-directional sync). SharePoint appointment and issue synchronisation is one-way or uni-directional because these are "team-based" in SharePoint. GroupWise customers who are using GroupWise Mobile Server or Novell DataSync can access their SharePoint information on their mobile device via Riva Integration Server.
