    ORLANDO, Go Mobile Conference, April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News
 Release/ -- iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc.
 (Nasdaq: SYBS), today announced its new Jump Start for Wireless program,
 designed to speed wireless enterprise application development. Addressing the
 complexity of development in the ever-changing wireless environment, the Jump
 Start for Wireless Program features packages and services to facilitate early
 enterprise application design through simplified access to proven technology
 and experienced technical resources.
     As a part of the Jump Start for Wireless Program, iAnywhere Solutions
 unveiled the Jump Start for Wireless Developer Package to provide companies
 with a simple, low cost entry point to overcome technical barriers such as
 integrating disparate networks, devices, and operating systems, addressing
 rigorous security and scalability issues, and ensuring seamless enterprise
 integration. For as little as $10,000, developers can create prototypes to
 better visualize the productivity and benefits a wireless solution can provide
 to their enterprise. The Developer Package includes:
 
     * A full day, on-site, interactive strategy session with an iAnywhere
       Solutions wireless consultant aimed at taking the first steps toward
       defining and delivering the optimal wireless application;
     * A development copy of iAnywhere(TM) Wireless Studio, which includes a
       scaleable and reliable wireless application server for always available
       access to e-Business applications, enterprise data and Internet content
       through mobile and wireless devices;
     * Access to the iAnywhere Solutions Wireless Gateway Service for three
       months, providing connectivity to a wide variety of wireless networks
       including CDPD, CDMA, GSM, GPRS, Mobitex, and DataTac; and
     * Technical support, providing ongoing access to wireless experts.
 
     In addition to the Developer Package, customers can work with the
 iAnywhere Solutions wireless services team to develop a broader, customized
 program to support the design, development and deployment of wireless
 solutions. These personalized Jump Start services cover such areas as
 education on the wireless landscape, needs analysis, wireless strategy
 planning, design of a wireless architecture, and creation of a blueprint for
 successfully delivering a wireless solution.
     "For the next two to three years, application development for mobile
 devices will be a specialty, requiring distinctly different skills and
 requiring a good deal of training for traditional developers to become
 productive," said Jack Gold, vice president of META Group. "Many enterprises
 will choose to deploy applications through vendor-developed quick start
 programs, which will offer companies the ability to utilize existing resources
 without big investments in retraining or competing for scarce wireless
 developers, while accelerating time to deployment."
     "iAnywhere Solutions is the one-stop source for m-Business solutions,
 offering customers a comprehensive solution to go from concept to reality in
 deploying new wireless applications. The Jump Start for Wireless Program
 lowers the barriers that our customers face when building or extending
 existing enterprise applications to wireless devices -- freeing them to focus
 on core business issues," said Robert Veitch, director of business
 development, iAnywhere Solutions.
     iAnywhere Solutions also provides a range of additional offerings as a
 part of its Jump Start for Wireless Program.  For more information please
