Press Release 2001

April 23, 2001 - iAnywhere Solutions Jump Starts The Development of Wireless Enterprise Applications - New program helps organizations to overcome the challenges of going wireless and get a jump start on the competition

ORLANDO, FL ¾ Go Mobile Conference ¾ April 23, 2001 ¾ iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYBS), today announced its new Jump Start for Wireless program, designed to speed wireless enterprise application development. Addressing the complexity of development in the ever-changing wireless environment, the Jump Start for Wireless Program features packages and services to facilitate early enterprise application design through simplified access to proven technology and experienced technical resources.

As a part of the Jump Start for Wireless Program, iAnywhere Solutions unveiled the Jump Start for Wireless Developer Package to provide companies with a simple, low cost entry point to overcome technical barriers such as integrating disparate networks, devices, and operating systems, addressing rigorous security and scalability issues, and ensuring seamless enterprise integration. For as little as $10,000, developers can create prototypes to better visualize the productivity and benefits a wireless solution can provide to their enterprise. The Developer Package includes:

  • A full day, on-site, interactive strategy session with an iAnywhere Solutions wireless consultant aimed at taking the first steps toward defining and delivering the optimal wireless application;
  • A development copy of iAnywhere™ Wireless Studio, which includes a scaleable and reliable wireless application server for always available access to e-Business applications, enterprise data and Internet content through mobile and wireless devices;
  • Access to the iAnywhere Solutions Wireless Gateway Service for three months, providing connectivity to a wide variety of wireless networks including CDPD, CDMA, GSM, GPRS, Mobitex, and DataTac; and
  • Technical support, providing ongoing access to wireless experts.

In addition to the Developer Package, customers can work with the iAnywhere Solutions wireless services team to develop a broader, customized program to support the design, development and deployment of wireless solutions. These personalized Jump Start services cover such areas as education on the wireless landscape, needs analysis, wireless strategy planning, design of a wireless architecture, and creation of a blueprint for successfully delivering a wireless solution.

"For the next two to three years, application development for mobile devices will be a specialty, requiring distinctly different skills and requiring a good deal of training for traditional developers to become productive," said Jack Gold, vice president of META Group. "Many enterprises will choose to deploy applications through vendor-developed quick start programs, which will offer companies the ability to utilize existing resources without big investments in retraining or competing for scarce wireless developers, while accelerating time to deployment."

"iAnywhere Solutions is the one-stop source for m-Business solutions, offering customers a comprehensive solution to go from concept to reality in deploying new wireless applications. The Jump Start for Wireless Program lowers the barriers that our customers face when building or extending existing enterprise applications to wireless devices – freeing them to focus on core business issues," said Robert Veitch, director of business development, iAnywhere Solutions.

iAnywhere Solutions also provides a range of additional offerings as a part of its Jump Start for Wireless Program. For more information please visit www.ianywhere.com/jumpstart.
