What's New

iAnywhere's Boise site was recently added to the Sybase networking phone system. This change allows us to utilize people and resources from other offices more efficiently. Please double-check your speed dial listings and make sure you have the correct numbers in your address books for Advantage Sales and Support.

New Advantage Sales Phone Numbers
The Advantage sales team can be reached by dialing 800-437-2460 and pressing 1, or press zero and ask for your Sales Representative by name. Currently, if you'd like to dial your Sales Representative directly, you'll need to call 208-287-1111 (where 1111 is the extension of your Sales Representative. Direct extensions for the North American sales team are as follows:

Chuck Vertrees 6111
Phil Ruebel 6032
Jay Wendt 6053
Mike Lewis 6051
Alex Ebright 6055

New Advantage Support Phone Numbers
The Advantage support team can be reached by dialing 800-437-2460, option 2. The support team is still using a voice-mail "call back" approach in order to help route, prioritize and research support calls, and validate support contracts prior to the point of service. This has been very effective in increasing the efficiency of the team and enabling them to provide better service.

To view more about the call back method, prioritizing and pricing, go to:

New Whitepaper

Creating a Reusable Data Layer for ASP.NET Applications and Advantage Database Server
This new whitepaper written by Cary Jensen, Ph.D. describes an object-based alternative to the design-time use of data access components. This technique involves building reusable data objects that can be used by many different pages of your ASP.NET application, as well as across different ASP.NET applications. The examples in this paper use the Advantage Data Provider for .NET.
