After focusing heavily on field service and rugged mobile applications, the latest iteration of the Sybase Unwired Platform is squarely targeting mobile information worker enablement. Here's a look at the company's product roadmap.

A number of SAP partners are lining up mobile solutions using the new Sybase Unwired Platform, the latest iteration of which was released August 9. The platform enhancements are the latest developments in Sybase's ongoing development of SAP functionality for mobile solutions following its sale to SAP earlier this year. The latest iteration of the Sybase Unwired Platform "has a huge focus on information worker enablement," says Tony Kueh, senior director mobility product management at Sybase. "In the past we have focused on field service and ruggedized applications. With the announcements in May of SAP Mobile CRM and Mobile Workflow for SAP Business Suite, we now have a single platform that enables both types of users in the enterprise."

iPhone support is also new for the platform, which already supports BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian. Android support will be available in the near future, says Kueh.
