11/3/2003 - Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), a leading enterprise infrastructure and integration company, announced that Gartner Dataquest has recognized Sybase PowerDesigner as the market share leader in database modeling with higher product license revenues than top competitors. Sybase PowerDesigner, an all-in-one modeling and design solution for enterprises that need to build or re-engineer business applications quickly, cost-effectively and consistently, increased its share of the market to 39 percent in 2002, reaching the top position in license revenue.

"Businesses now expect modeling tools to not only deliver robust functionality, but also to ensure that applications can be built rapidly and affordably," according to a recent report.

To deliver value in these complex environments, successful modeling tools should support traditional and emerging modeling techniques to help cut the time and complexity out of development projects."

These platforms include Sybase Adaptive Server® Enterprise, the company's enterprise-class relational database management system; Sybase Adaptive Server® Anywhere, the company's transaction-based SQL database designed for personal and workgroup use; and Sybase IQ, the company's highly scalable analytical engine; as well as, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle 9i and many others such as J2EE, .NET and Web services application frameworks.
