The PowerEasy product targets the needs of resource planning and e-commerce for small and medium-sized businesses, and will be built on Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 12.5, and Apple's WebObjects 5.2 development environment. Pricing starts as US$80,000 per machine. Even at that, the solution will be 20 percent less than comparable solutions on Windows platforms, according to Kikkeri Balvenkatesh, chief operating officer of PowerEasy.

"By developing our application using WebObjects 5.2, we are able to significantly reduce development costs and pass the savings on to customers," Balvenkatesh said.

Sybase's ASE 12.5 for Mac OS X Developer's Edition is available for free download from the Sybase Developer Network (SDN). Mac developers can find other tools and code specifically for Mac by joining SDN.
