These new versions further enhance enterprise customers' ability to quickly create composite applications and then easily extend them to their mobile workforce.

"Sybase continues to drive the vision of an Unwired Enterprise with an end-to-end solution that supports information management, data integration and mobile application development," said Dr. Raj Nathan, senior vice president, Information Technology Solutions Group, Sybase, Inc. "Updates to Unwired Accelerator and Unwired Orchestrator allow our customers to realize this vision by enabling their valuable data to be truly accessible to the right people anywhere and at any time."

Unwired Accelerator 7.0 is the newest version of Sybase's rapid mobilization platform and is designed to help customers more easily push critical information out to the mobile workforce via PDAs, Smart Phones and other wireless devices. In this capacity, Unwired Accelerator 7.0 is ideal for mobilizing legacy applications, sales force automation applications, field force automation, executive dashboards and key performance indicators. The platform provides always-available mobile access to critical information sources by supporting a wide range of enterprise applications, including SAP, Business Objects, Lotus Notes, Remedy, Web-enabled applications, Web Services and databases.

New features in Unwired Accelerator 7.0 include: -- Mobilization wizard for SAP applications to help SAP business analysts quickly and easily extend their SAP applications to their mobile workers, for anywhere and anytime access on any device -- Mobilization wizard for Business Objects reports and key performance indicators so that business users can access their business intelligence reports on their mobile devices -- Mobilization wizard for Remedy service management applications to provide data access for service workers and technicians, allowing them to resolve trouble tickets from mobile devices -- Enhancements to the Application Builder, making it even easier for developers to develop and deploy mobile applications -- Enhancements to the BlackBerry(R) Unwired Accelerator application to support field validation and logging
