Riding strong demand for mobile deployment of enterprise apps and data, Sybase posted record first-quarter revenue and earnings and highlighted two of its new mobile apps for SAP as key drivers of that growth.From an earnings roundup on marketwatch.com:

"2010 is off to a strong start for Sybase," stated Chairman, CEO and President of Sybase John Chen. "We achieved historical first-quarter highs in revenue, operating margins, earnings, and cash flow."

Added Mr. Chen, "Expansion of data, mobile devices, and real-time computing is driving adoption of our Unwired Enterprise strategy and stimulating demand for our data management, analytics, and mobility offerings.

"We made progress across our product stack as we launched innovative new solutions in the quarter, including the ASE In-Memory Database option, Operator Analytics 365, Mobile CRM for SAP, and Mobile Workflow for SAP, among others.

The explosion in smartphone deployments for mobile professionals and CIOs' increasing insistence on ubquitous access to real-time data gave Sybase a great opportunity to fill a void in the otherwise vast product lines of SAP and Oracle.
