Original Press Release:

Sybase Delivers Next Phase of Information Anywhere Suite With Sybase Unwired Accelerator 8.0

New Solution Provides Mobile Users with Access to Key Enterprise Applications and Business Processes from Any Mobile Device

DUBLIN, Calif., Sept. 25 // -- Sybase, Inc. (NYSE:SY), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, today announced the availability of Sybase(R) Unwired Accelerator 8.0, an innovative mobile solution that enables users to access their enterprise applications, data and business processes from mobile devices.

Sybase Unwired Accelerator 8.0 enables developers and IT professionals to build custom mobile solutions that extend existing enterprise information sources, including SAP ERP, BMC Remedy Service Desk, Business Objects and Crystal Reports XI, Lotus Notes, JDBC databases, Web Services or Web applications, directly to handheld devices.

"Mobile deployments are growing rapidly as companies utilize the expanding array of highly capable smart devices and increasingly available wireless broadband connections," said Jack Gold, founder and principal analyst, J. Gold Associates. "However, the inability to rapidly create and deploy mobile applications is constraining the growth of the market and slowing deployments for many organizations. Easy to use rapid deployment tools, like Sybase Unwired Accelerator, provide a needed boost to organizations with limited development resources who want to deploy back office applications out to mobile end users with the least cost and in the shortest possible time."

"Sybase is unique in offering end-users a wide range of options for accessing enterprise data and business processes from virtually any mobile device."

-- Enhanced application support for Business Objects XI, Crystal Reports XI, Lotus Notes 6.5, Remedy Service Management and SAP ERP
