Key highlights from today are:
Sybase, an SAP company and industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, today announced the general availability of Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 15.7. Sybase ASE 15.7 provides a cost-efficient relational database management system (RDBMS) for managing very large data sets for the most demanding applications. ASE 15.7, with its new advanced compression capabilities, allows large data volumes to be stored more compactly and reduces I/O times, enabling today’s top enterprises to handle more transactions and support more concurrent users without adding the cost of more disks and hardware.
The feature-rich Sybase ASE 15.7 release significantly builds on the ASE 15x product line, providing the optimal platform for SAP Business Suite. As a result, ASE 15.7 not only provides a powerful database platform for SAP customers, but also allows existing Sybase ASE customers to easily adopt the new features and optimizations without the need for a database upgrade.
Summary: SAP AG and Sybase, an SAP company and industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, today premiered its interface support for App Store Volume Purchase Program (VPP) for Business with Afaria, the industry-leading mobile device and application management solution from Sybase. By enabling streamlined and secure application deployment and management for enterprise users through an enhanced on-device app portal, Afaria helps extend App Store’s reach into the enterprise market.
Using Afaria, an IT organization can scale the deployment and management of enterprise mobile apps acquired through App Store VPP. Companies can assign and deploy mobile applications to specific employees who are authorized to use the application and access the associated corporate data. Organizations can also allocate and track licenses used, improving transparency.
In an effort to fast track mobile application development through a standardized mobile enterprise application platform, SAP AG and Sybase, an SAP company and industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, today announced Sybase Unwired Platform 2.1. The latest release will enrich the mobile application development experience through significant enhancements to its software development kit (SDK) and new developer resources for the more than 2 million members of SAP Community Network.
As enterprises adopt mobile applications, they are often faced with point solutions not capable of accessing critical data across the entire enterprise. This release of Sybase Unwired Platform is one of the first fully integrated mobile enterprise application platforms (MEAPs) architected to leverage existing developer skill sets and industry standards, reducing the heavy lifting often required with mobile application development.
