Enterprise Wireless E-Mail Recognition

I am not surprised, Sybase relies on its own technologies daily

In a previous article I stated that we really do live in a Mobile World, which is driven by the latest and greatest Smartphone’s around, and for those Enterprise Mobile Device users, it seems that PIM (Personal Information Management) is key. This PIM data is made up of Contact, Calendars & E-Mail and it is a cool co-incidence that yesterday, after I wrote & posted my article, Gartner placed Sybase in the Leaders Quadrant of its 'Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wireless E-Mail Software, May 2009'. Good news indeed!

In addition to the above, Sybase’s iAnywhere Mobile Office was covered in another Gartner research note titled, 'Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Wireless E-mail Software'. For those of you that are not aware, iAnywhere Mobile Office is a solution for secure mobile email and business process mobilization. It combines infrastructure support with on-device security, usability and performance. It is a solution that support Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange enterprise e-mail systems out to a wide range of devices including iPhone, Windows Mobile and Symbian. If you are interested you can find more about Mobile Office here.


Sybase iAnywhere's President, Terry Stepien, said.. “We are pleased to be recognized again by Gartner in the Leaders quadrant for Enterprise Wireless E-Mail Software, With so many consumer-driven mobile devices entering the enterprise, IT is now forced to extend mobile applications, such as e-mail, to a wide range of mobile platforms and devices. In my opinion, this latest report from Gartner further validates Sybase’s ability to help enterprises overcome challenges in developing, integrating, securing, and managing corporate wireless email solutions.”

The Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period. It is intended solely as a research tool, and is not meant to be a specific guide to action. It depicts Gartner’s analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by Gartner. Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in the Magic Quadrant, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors placed in the “Leaders” quadrant.

I am not surprised that Sybase & iAnywhere have had these accolades awarded. Why? Well Sybase, just like any company, has various degrees of mobile workers and many different devices in our Enterprise, that all work seamlessly, every day, using our own technologies.

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
