Sybase, Inc., an SAP® company (NYSE: SAP) and industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, and NCS Pte Ltd, a leading infocommunications technology (ICT) service provider, today announced that they have signed a partnership to enable enterprises to manage the deployment of enterprise mobility solutions.

“Both NCS and Sybase see vast opportunities in the enterprise mobility offering in Southeast Asia,” said Rachel Goh, Group General Manager, Business Applications and Services of NCS. “By facilitating the integration, enterprise mobility enablement can help meet the rapid explosion of mobile workers and CXOs who are inundating the IT departments with requests to use their personal devices to access the corporate systems.” 

A key aspect of the collaboration is the building of differentiated mobile solutions by NCS, powered by Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP), an industry-leading mobile enterprise application platform and Sybase Afaria®, a market-leading mobile device management and security solution. NCS will design and develop mobile applications and provide mobile device management services while Sybase will provide the technical knowledge, product development and marketing support.
