Sybase continuously improves its software so that you can develop information systems to keep your business on the competitive edge. Software Services enable access to these software improvements through new version releases and maintenance releases.
New Version Releases
To keep your system current, these fully tested new version releases are issued periodically and often include new features, improved performance, and changes to ensure your Sybase products are optimized for your operating system and hardware. These releases also include fixes for software defects identified in earlier versions.
