Sybase Delivers Sybase Data Integration Suite 1.0


Streamlines Essential Data Integration Techniques into Single Out-of-Box Solution

DUBLIN, Calif. — November 6, 2006 — Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), the largest provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, today announced the general availability of the Sybase® Data Integration Suite 1.0, a flexible and scalable solution that combines essential data integration techniques including replication, federation, real-time events and unstructured data search with integrated modeling, metadata, development and administration.

The Sybase Data Integration Suite 1.0 builds on Sybase’s substantial experience in data management and data integration to give customers a more flexible way to get the right data to the right people at the right time. Streamlining data integration techniques into a single out-of-the box solution provides a faster, less complex way to respond to business changes. The suite provides access to diverse data, regardless of format or location, through heterogeneous support of multiple databases, applications and legacy systems.

“Enterprises continue to need more, better, and faster business intelligence data to drive key decisions and that data needs to be flexibly obtained from across the organization,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president covering information management and data integration software at IDC. “Users often employ a combination of products to transform, move and combine data for such purposes, but the preferred approach involves a single product that provides a variety of heterogeneous data integration techniques with a common metadata and development environment. Sybase had leveraged their extensive experience and expertise in data movement and integration to offer the Sybase Data Integration Suite as just such a product.”

Available individually or in combination, the components in Sybase Data Integration Suite 1.0, have all been stress-tested in the most demanding environments.

The components include:

* Sybase Replication: Replication ensures all applications, including real-time reporting systems that need to capture, extract and synchronize data between various applications and locations, have reliable access to the most current information across the enterprise.
* Sybase Data Federation: Data Federation streamlines the integration of data from many distributed sources while providing standardized access to integrated views of data through a single data layer. It provides a flexible, scalable and efficient way to integrate and deliver data obtained from diverse distributed sources to key enterprise applications. These functions include corporate performance, integrated customer service, customer relationship management, risk management, regulatory compliance and financial reporting applications that require fresh data consolidated from multiple parts of the organization.
* Sybase Real Time Events – Sybase Real Time Events proactively pushes time-critical events from heterogeneous operational databases to messaging architectures, eliminating the “information lags” created by batch updates or intermittent polling processes. Sybase Real Time Events enables downstream business processes to immediately react to changes thereby increasing business agility.
* Sybase Search – Sybase Search helps companies in data intensive industries query and analyze their structured and unstructured data from both fixed and mobile sources. Sybase Search enables applications to automatically find the most important information within the masses of unstructured information stored in an organization’s centralized repositories, libraries, file systems and existing document management systems.

“Sybase Real Time Events and Replication have enabled us to streamline the flow of data through our 24x6 global trading/settlement environment, without having to add support resources,” said Susan Symczak, senior vice president of applications, Natexis Bleichroeder. “Trades are processed faster, while multiple mission-critical systems are simultaneously updated. We are excited about the Data Integration Suite because it takes the data integration technology that Sybase is known for to a whole new level of ease and manageability.”

Sybase Data Integration Suite accelerates the design, development, delivery and management of dynamic data flows. The suite includes an integrated, easy-to-use, Eclipse-based development environment, Sybase WorkSpace, along with robust administration services. These tools, combined with modeling and metadata management, provided through Sybase’s industry-leading modeling solution, Sybase PowerDesigner®, forms the smart “glue” that enables a holistic, controlled method for achieving agility.

“The Sybase Data Integration Suite furthers our Unwired Enterprise vision by equipping customers with a smarter, more streamlined solution for a really tough problem – integrating the diverse enterprise data required for business agility,” said Kathleen Schaub, vice president, Sybase Information Technology Solutions Group. “Consistency across the integration techniques and the ability to re-use data services reduces operational cost and complexity. Our customers are able to select just the modular integration components needed today and then scale with other components as their environment grows and changes.”

Sybase Data Integration Suite 1.0 is available now. Sybase ETL (extract, transform and load) based on technology from Sybase’s most recent acquisition, Solonde, is available separately now and is expected to be integrated in future versions of the suite. More information is available at:
