Sybase's Mobile division has unveiled the latest version of iAnywhere's M-Business Anywhere mobile application platform, featuring broader device support, new usage tracking capabilities and support for global deployments. It has also added tablet, laptop and PC support.
Caroline Scofield, mobile product manager at Sybase said, "M-Business Anywhere is the only solution in the industry that enables developers to create mobile web applications for deployment on such a wide range of devices.”
“For example, existing web applications designed for delivery to PDAs can now be seamlessly deployed to tablets," she added.
The upgrade provides companies with unprecedented device flexibility while keeping development costs very low, because they can use their existing web development expertise.
"M-Business Anywhere combines iAnywhere's database, synchronisation and web application capabilities to simplify deployment to multiple form factors," said Warren Wilson, practice director for mobile and wireless business solutions at Summit Strategies.
"By supporting tablets, laptops and PCs in addition to PDAs, iAnywhere has made M-Business Anywhere an even stronger enterprise platform," he said.
M-Business Anywhere is the core technology of the AvantGo mobile internet service. The platform enables organisations to extend web content and applications, including CRM, ERP, and other enterprise solutions, to mobile devices rapidly and with low total cost of ownership.
M-Business Anywhere supports both wireless and offline "sync-and-go" connectivity, ensuring always-available access to web-based information from any location.
