SYBASE POWERS NEXT GENERATION E-BUSINESS SOLUTIONS
Concord, MA , April 19, 1999 -- Over 200 partners have joined
Sybase to deliver E-business applications, complementary technology, and services using
the latest development tools and deployment platform from Sybase, Inc. (Nasdaq: SYBS).
Launched today, Enterprise Application Studio 3.0 (EAStudio) includes Enterprise
Application Server 3.0 (EAServer), PowerJ 3.0 and PowerBuilder® 7.0, and is
being used by leading Sybase partners to implement innovative E-business solutions based
on Sybase's integrated development and deployment infrastructure. Please see related press
release entitled, "Sybase Launches Enterprise Application Server 3.0, PowerBuilder
7.0 and PowerJ 3.0."
"IT directors have been faced with the choice of building scalable enterprise
applications, or building something quickly," said Joseph Strazza, president and CEO,
WinMill Software. "Sybase gives you both. Our clients want to bring their existing
applications to the Web, without starting from scratch and without re-staffing. They want
open systems that scale to meet the high transaction volume afforded by the Internet. In
this arena, Enterprise Application Studio is tough to match. Sybase is the only vendor
that provides the complete, industrial strength solution."
Continuing to work closely with its extensive partner and customer network, Sybase is
helping organizations realize their E-business initiatives by providing partners with a
highly productive, secure, scalable, and standards based platform on which to build,
deploy, and integrate sophisticated enterprise applications for the Web.
"For years, our partners and customers have worked closely with Sybase to build a
broad range of enterprise applications," said Bill Bartow, vice president of
engineering and marketing, Sybase's Internet Applications Division. "With the new
enhancements to Enterprise Application Server, PowerJ and PowerBuilder we are continuing
to provide our partners with the new technology they need to quickly and easily deliver
the next generation of E-business applications."
Sybase technology partners have complementary technology required for E-business such
as security, application integration, application management, application modeling, load
balancing, and testing. Some of these key technology partners include Entrust®
Technologies, HydraWeb, IBM, Insession, KL Group, Metex, Rational, and Riverton.
Leading Sybase value added resellers and system integrators are building custom
applications and repeatable solutions on Sybase's platform. These partners include Access
International, Actium, AJJA, Applied Knowledge, CHASEE Integrated Systems, Client Server
Associates, Computer Technology Associates, Deloitte Consulting, Dynamic Data Solutions,
GDI, Greenbrier & Russel, Inc., Langui Systems, Middleware Consulting Group, Noblestar
Systems, Norrell Information Systems, Pegasoft Corporation, SoluTech, Techsys Computer
Associates, Visual Systems Group, Whittman-Hart, and WinMill Software.
Following are some examples of what our partners are developing:
WinMill Software helped Scholastic Books, a global children's publishing and media
company, implement a Web based customer self-service application. Using EAServer and
PowerJ, Scholastic was able to alleviate the thousands of calls they received through
their customer service center and save hundreds of thousands of dollars by enabling
customers to check their order status via the Web.
Middleware Consulting Group is helping Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI)
build a 3-tier, 120 user customer service system. Built with EAStudio, the Intranet
application will allow a variety of light weight clients to use the business logic sitting
in the middle tier on EAServer and distributed PowerBuilder components.
Noblestar Systems has built a Technology Center of Excellence where they will host a
weekly presentation focusing on applying N-tiered architecture to business problems
through Sybase's latest release of Enterprise Application Studio. These sessions will
focus on how to utilize EAStudio to provide open, industrial-strength distributed
applications as well as how to migrate 2-tier PowerBuilder applications to N-tier.
