Sybase To Upgrade Mobile Database

Targeting the rapidly growing number for portable computing devices and mobile phones with Web-browser support, Sybase next week will unveil Sybase SQL Anywhere Studio 7.0, the newest release of the vendor's mobile database and synchronization technology.

Release 7.0 bundles the database and synchronization technology together in one package for the first time, instead of as separate options. New features include 128-bit encryption capabilities, a native OLE DB driver, and support for the Psion Inc. Epoc and Wind River Systems Inc. VxWorks mobile operating systems. Slated for availability in late March, the software will be priced at $399 for one user and $999 for 10 users.

Stanley Associates Inc. in Alexandria, Va., uses SQL Anywhere Studio as the foundation for equipment-inventory-management applications it has developed for the U.S. Army. The company is beta testing release 7.0. "There are a lot of features we're anxious to get into production," says Eric Murchie-Beyma, technical director for army systems at the company. He cites the software's ability to automatically adjust data cache sizes, its new stored procedure debugger, and the software's new event-response scheduling abilities.

Twenty-three percent of corporate users already connect to their networks from remote locations, according to Forrester Research, a number that will increase to 35% during the next two years. Jupiter Communications estimates that the number of Internet-capable personal digital assistant devices will grow from 5.2 million today to 12 million by 2003, while the number of browser-enabled portable phones will increase from 1.1 million to 79.4 million.
