There’s an app for just about everything these days, but mobilizing enterprises requires considerably more thought. Sybase, an SAP company, helps enterprises manage, analyze and mobilize information across all major systems, networks and devices, so that your company can conduct business with confidence today and tomorrow.
Sybase’s enterprise mobility, analytics and information management solutions are powering mission-critical systems in the world’s leading healthcare, insurance, financial services, government, manufacturing and telecommunications organizations.
Sybase was acquired by software giant SAP in August 2010, and is now spearheading SAP’s mobile business.
“Sybase has been a mobility innovator since 1992. Gartner, IDC and Forrester recognize we are leading the way,” said Carolyn Fitton, product marketing manager at Sybase. “SAP reaches a large percentage of customers that want to increase their efficiency through mobility. SAP provides the back-end systems; Sybase provides the application development tools and mobility solutions. Together, we’re mobilizing enterprises.”
Sybase’s mobile enterprise products include the Sybase Unwired Platform, which deploys mobile enterprise applications to mobile users; Afaria, an enterprise security and device management system; and SQL Anywhere, a data management system. There are also two combined Sybase/SAP solutions: Sybase Mobile Sales for SAP CRM and Sybase Mobile Workflow for SAP Business Suite.
The Sybase Unwired Platform allows organizations to create and manage multiple mobile applications that securely connect to back-end data sources to major device types. It includes a powerful 4GL tooling environment for fast mobile development that integrates with popular IDEs such as Eclipse, so developers can use their existing tools and expertise.
“Enterprises are presented with multiple device types in their organization. As more devices are released, it seems unrealistic that a developer would have to mobilize applications for specific devices,” said Fitton. “Enterprises want to connect Web services and databases to devices, but the process needs to be simplified. If you use a mobile platform that abstracts back-end information, you can push the abstraction out to multiple device types because you have a template application for the operating systems. Write once, deploy to many.”
