Sybase and China Comservice form joint venture


Sybase, a provider of enterprise and mobile software, and
China Communications Services Corporation, China’s integrated services
provider for the telecom sector, announced their joint venture to address
opportunities in China market.


The new company, combining the technologies, industry
expertise and vast market access from both parties, will provide telecom
operators, enterprises and government agencies first-class data management and
analytics offerings, mobile device management and applications, mobile commerce

biggest number of fixed-line and mobile subscribers, as well as the largest

outsourcing, and application and content development.


For the past two decades, Sybase has been committed to
accelerating China’s IT infrastructure growth, with a focus on the
telecommunications industry globally and especially in China,” said John Chen,
chairman and CEO of Sybase.



Together with CCS, we are well positioned to bring to
market the full set of Sybase’s leading enterprise-class technologies,
including  Sybase ASE, Sybase IQ, Sybase Unwired Platform and Sybase

The joint venture will start operations after receiving
Chinese government approval, expected later this year.
