iAnywhere Leads Western European Mobile Middleware Market

11/26/2003 - In a recent report, IDC recognized iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), as the leader in the Western European mobile middleware market. This report expands on IDC research released in July that named iAnywhere as the worldwide market leader and places the company ahead of fourteen competitors.

"iAnywhere, the current mobile middleware market leader worldwide, demonstrated its strength in Western Europe as the market leader for CY02," said Stephen Drake, program manager, Mobile Infrastructure Software at IDC, a leading provider of global IT research and advice. "As iAnywhere looks to continue its position within the mobile middleware market, its presence in Western Europe is important. Its strength in enterprise and vertical solutions has been the largest thrust to date."

"Mobility is a key driver in the Sybase Unwired Enterprise initiative, helping companies realize bottom line benefits from effectively managing, integrating and extending business critical information," said Terry Stepien, president, iAnywhere Solutions. "Our leadership in the mobile middleware market ideally positions us to meet customers' current and future mobility needs."

IDC finds that although Western Europe is in its initial stages of mobile enablement, a strong opportunity exists for growth in the next five years. The core components are in place in this region, including a strong base of mobile workers and high mobile phone penetration, strong existing heterogeneous mobile networks, migration plans for 3G adoption and trusted providers. All of these factors set the stage for growth for corporate mobile enablement, where mobile middleware will play a critical role.
