Sybase E-Business Leadership: Sybase Unveils Enterprise Portal 2.0 to European E-Business Leaders at CeBIT 2001

Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from Sybase, Inc.

    EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- European e-Business leaders
 had their first look at Sybase's Enterprise Portal 2.0 (EP 2.0) at the recent
 CeBIT 2001 in Hanover, Germany.  Considered the world's leading showplace for
 information technology, telecommunications and office automation, the
 seven-day CeBIT exhibition attracted close to 830,000 visitors from sixty
 different countries.  The exhibition took place in late March and provided
 Sybase, Inc. (Nasdaq:   SYBS) the opportunity to showcase the benefits of the
 e-Business portal solution to a worldwide audience.  Sybase has upcoming EP
 2.0 launch activities scheduled for each of its European subsidiaries (United
 Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany,
 France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and Greece).  EP 2.0 is an extensible
 portal foundation for e-Business success.  EP 2.0 reaches across traditional
 corporate boundaries to deliver real e-Business return on investment by
 seamlessly integrating an enterprise with its trading partners, e-marketplaces
 as well as wireless and mobile users.  It is designed to help organizations
 increase their return on technology investments by improving efficiencies and
 productivity through a core e-Business infrastructure that companies can add
 to as their needs evolve.  "The introduction of the euro has brought together
 a market of over 300 million consumers in 11 member states of the European
 Union," said Fred Manhartsberger, senior vice president and general manager of
 Europe for Sybase.  "Until now, because of currency limitations in individual
 countries, e-commerce and the Internet have not had the same value in Europe
 as in the United States. With the barrier of multiple currencies removed,
 companies can more easily transact e-Business seamlessly across national
 borders, making the Internet far more strategic.  Given the opportunities the
 euro presents, the timing of Enterprise Portal's European launch couldn't be
 better."
