iAnywhere Solutions Tops Mobile Database Market for Sixth Consecutive Year

12/18/2002 - iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), announced that it leads the mobile database market for the sixth year in a row. The company’s SQL Anywhere® Studio powers mobile, remote, embedded and workgroup database solutions across a range of industries including field service, transportation, retail, utilities, financial services, healthcare and government.

Mobile DBMS giant Sybase was able to increase its share of the market from 68 percent in 2000 to 73 percent in 2001. As the global economy slowly pulls out of recession, the mobile DBMS market is expected to pick up fairly rapidly. Gartner is predicting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 16 percent through 2006. This will cause the market to more than double, from slightly under $70 million in 2001 to around $150 million in 2006.

“We are proud to be recognized as the long-standing mobile database market leader,” said Terry Stepien, president, iAnywhere Solutions. “With more than ten years experience, iAnywhere Solutions has built a strong base of over seven million deployed seats of our technology. Also key to our success are our strong relationships with the seven hundred application partners who embed SQL Anywhere Studio within their solutions.”
