Sybase Inc. has announced plans to release a new version of its platform for standardized mobile enterprise app development. The SAP AG company announced Sybase Unwired Platform 2.1, which includes updates to its software development kit and new developer resources.
Sybase Unwired Platform 2.1 provides a collection of new tooling, server components and libraries aimed at simplifying mobile app development across most of the major operating systems with SAP data integration.
“With an existing developer community network of more than 2 million members and an SAP customer base of more than 170,000, there is tremendous opportunity for SAP and Sybase to innovate around and execute on our on-device strategy,” said Raj Nathan, EVP, CMO and head of mobile applications at Sybase. “The high interest in mobile apps and online store-like environments in the consumer space is now extending to the enterprise. However, the model requires a much different architectural approach to be successful. This marks a significant release for the entire mobile app developer community and our growing partner ecosystem, as they now have a standards-based, unified platform and community program to rally around and deliver high volumes of enterprise mobility apps.”
Sybase Unwired Platform 2.1 is slated for release in the fourth quarter.
