customers on Sybase's SQL server database.
The suite, tailored to meet the needs of companies with 10 to about 200 users, currently works only with Microsoft SQL Server and Windows machines.
SAP's relationship with Sybase, of Dublin, Calif., now adds Linux and Unix support.
"We had two customers who switched to the Microsoft platform, but would have preferred to stay with Unix if they could," said Kory Lind, president of
Third Wave Business Systems, in Elmwood, N.J. "We're also getting a lot of questions about Linux, which seems to have become more mainstream. Having
these additional options will be very beneficial for us."
