Today, I'm proud to report that Sybase iAnywhere has been recognized, as a leader in Mobile Device Management Enterprise Software for the eight consecutive year!

Sean Ryan, research analyst, mobile enterprise, IDC said "More and more organizations require a robust device management and security platform to support a wide range of mobile devices such as iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile,” He followed “Despite the current tough economic climate, the adoption rate of mobile technology continues to grow. Looking ahead, organizations will be required to streamline operations and control costs but also ensure the mobile workforce has the right support, access, security and compliance controlled through a single environment that can manage multiple platforms, different devices and varied applications.

The report found that the worldwide MDM enterprise market grew by 7% from 2007 to 2008, reaching $260.8 million in revenue. IDC predicts that the market will grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2% over the next five years to reach $405.3 million by 2013. Sybase iAnywhere's Afaria Solution in Mobile Device Management (MDM) now has a 19.2% Market Share.

The fact that IDC has recognized Sybase iAnywhere as the MDM leader for the eighth consecutive year is a testament to our leadership and commitment to advance our mobility offerings,” said Terry Stepien, president, Sybase iAnywhere. “We continue to see a strong proliferation of different device types in the enterprise, yet customers demand a single management system. This is where Sybase differentiates from the competition. At the center of every new offering and innovation are the core competencies needed to drive businesses forward and prepare them for the unwired enterprise of the future.
