iAnywhere Demonstrates Innovative .NET Mobile Application

3/20/2003 - iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), demonstrated an innovative application that leverages the .NET data provider for SQL Anywhere® Studio and the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework. The mobile insurance claims processing application enables remote workers to view and enter information, import and annotate photos and synchronize data to a backend enterprise database using a Pocket PC device. The demonstration will be available this week in the iAnywhere Solutions booth (#107) at the Microsoft Mobility Developer Conference.

"iAnywhere Solutions’ support for both our .NET Framework and .NET Compact Framework will play an important role in fueling the creation of database-powered enterprise solutions, delivering the technology to iAnywhere Solutions’ base of more than 10,000 developers," said Craig Neable, program manager for the Developer and Platform Evangelism Division at Microsoft Corp.

"The introduction of our SQL Anywhere Studio .NET data provider is further evidence of our commitment to the .NET developer platform," said Michael Paola, group product manager at iAnywhere Solutions. "This insurance solution illustrates the power of mobile enterprise applications to make remote workers more productive, providing them with the same critical tools and information that they rely upon in the office."

A robust, reliable relational database stored locally on a mobile device enables insurance adjusters to work effectively regardless of network availability. The data in the local SQL Anywhere Studio database is always available and can be automatically synchronized with the insurance company's enterprise database when the adjuster regains network access.
