           Hi Sharath
                With all my respect to r-k, when I consider myself a newbie, above links do not explain what they are, and what they are used for. It just talk about company description, history and current products.
                Here are short descriptions about technologies you asked
                   Citrix Presentation Server is a technology that can allow remote users to connect to applications that are actually installed on a remote server. And users use/access the applications as if it was installed locally. One of the important benefits of that is, when user corrupts the application or cause it to malfunction, you do not have to waste time on user's computer with application CDs repair installation, uninstall/reinstall and etc. You can simply reload the application from server. Also another benefit, you do not have to deploy applications to computers one by one. Altiris is an alternative.
                   MS Project is for managing projects companywide. Lets say that you have a project called X. And the marketing, accounting, and IT departments are  involved in this project. As you are the project manager, you assign tasks, phases, time scheduling and so on. Then this info autmoatically delivered to departments since Project is Exchange integrated. It has an outlook add-in that users can follow the project either in outlook or in web access. Also you assign risk status ( that if this phase not completed, it affects the overall by %x) to users and so on.
               Above are products which I used to involve. Never used Sybase before but as far as I collected some info about it, It has many products but it is commonly known with ASE. Here is a description from some site.
              "Sybase ASE / SQL Server is an industry-strength high-performance database solution used by some of the largest corporations worldwide. It is also, in my personal opinion, one of the easiest database servers to learn and to work with. It has a wide range of extremely advanced options, probably the most advanced replication in the market, and a set of various add-on products that will even support opaque access of data from competing products. There is a Linux version available for download which is free even for production use. Sharing a common heritage with Microsoft SQL Server (Sybase sold the code to Microsoft, but the T-SQL dialect remains almost the same in both products), Sybase ASE is the easiest way of getting "MS SQL on Linux". Having said that, you may also understand by now that Sybase ASE could deserve the label "the best-kept secret in the market". Welcome to a free helping of a commercial database server that basically runs most of Wall Street and stock exchanges around the world - now on your home PC or business server. "
              Of course it will be better to hear from an expert who has involved in Sybase.
