Sybase Extends Lifeboat to Application Development Community

2/10/2004 - Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, announced an extended partnership with Lifeboat Distribution to provide developers access to the full suite of Sybase world-leading application development products. Lifeboat Distribution, an international wholesale provider of software development tools, utilities and other technology benefiting computer software resellers, will now be able to offer Sybase developer-focused products to more than 6,000 resellers worldwide. This extended agreement is the latest step in Sybase’s ongoing plan to provide the industry’s broadest range of open standards-based application development technology.

“Sybase’s distribution partnership with Lifeboat is further proof of our commitment to support the development community with the tools they need to respond quickly to business conditions with applications that integrate easily into legacy infrastructures,” said Moon Lim, director, Distributor and Reseller Sales, Sybase Worldwide Partner Group. “By working closely with Lifeboat, an expanded number of resellers can now take advantage of purchasing the full range of Sybase’s industry-leading development products from a single vendor.”

“Since we first began working closely with Sybase to distribute its PowerDesigner and EAServer products, we’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers,” said Dan Jamieson, vice president and general manager, Lifeboat Distribution Services. “We’re excited to be expanding our partnership with Sybase to provide our customers with an even greater selection of application development tools from one of the most innovative and trusted vendors in this space.”

Sybase application design, development and deployment solutions enable development teams to respond to line-of-business needs with unprecedented speed. The Sybase developer community, numbering over 100,000 members, relies on patented Sybase innovations, including the Sybase DataWindow®, to increase productivity, reduce development time and project complexity, and enable collaboration between business and technical team members. These open standards-based products support a wide range of technologies — including Web Services, J2EE and Microsoft .NET — and help developers architect applications that both integrate with existing technology investments and business logic, and align with requirements for tomorrow’s service-oriented architectures.

Sybase’s suite of application development products includes development and data modeling tools, an application server, and reporting tools:

The Sybase Developer Network (SDN) offers in-depth support to help developers get the most from their Sybase tools, including software, services, technical information, as well as collaboration with other Sybase developers. SDN continues to expand developer services including CodeXchange, which greatly helps developers interested in searching for open source code or in starting collaborative projects with their peers. SDN membership is free and provides a forum for collaboration and code sharing, as well as access to advanced white papers, audio technical recordings from Sybase engineers, and bug fixes and product updates.
