SAP, Sybase join on iPhone

SAP and Sybase are collaborating on applications for the iPhone and other cellphones, says Reuters. SAP's business management software is in the process of being shrunk by Sybase, which already produces generic scaling tools for the broader market. The latter company is also known for developing iAnywhere, intermediate software used to bridge iPhones with corporate e-mail networks that have stricter security standards.

Aside from the iPhone, SAP and Sybase say they are also making Microsoft's Windows Mobile platform one of their initial focuses. SAP is separately said to be working with Research in Motion on scaled-down software, in an attempt to get its programs working on BlackBerry phones. Products of the SAP/Sybase partnership are expected to ship in the second half of the year.
