Sybase IQ 15 Delivers the Smartest, Most Cost-Effective Answers to Business Analytics Questions


Sybase Extends its Leadership in Column-Oriented Architecture, Delivering Lightning-fast Load Speeds and Blazing Query Performance for Business-Critical Decision Making

DUBLIN, CALIF. — Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), the largest enterprise software and services company exclusively focused on managing and mobilizing information, today unveiled Sybase® IQ 15, the next generation of its highly optimized analytics server. This latest version of Sybase IQ is designed to deliver dramatically faster, more accurate analysis and reporting to address the growing need to make well-informed business-critical decisions based on real-time data. Sybase IQ 15 builds upon the world’s leading column-based analytics server by adding more power, flexibility and manageability to today’s data-laden and user-expanding analytics environments, enabling enterprises to anticipate market risks and opportunities, stay ahead of customer preferences and adjust business processes to enable growth – all at a very affordable cost to implement and manage.

“Sybase IQ 15 builds upon our strong heritage in data analytics and represents the most mature & feature-rich column-oriented analytics offering in the marketplace today, as well as the fastest analytics server in the world” said Dr. Raj Nathan of Sybase. “It is no surprise why more than 1,500 customers have adopted our approach to analytics – nobody delivers more accurate and cost-effective analytics solutions that enable winning business results by attracting new customers, growing revenues, and predicting outcomes and risks in today’s volatile and competitive world climate.”

With today’s enterprises facing constrained IT budgets, smart corporate decision-making relies more heavily than ever upon the ability to support sophisticated, real-time analytics on large volumes of data, without sacrificing profit margins. As business decisions are more closely scrutinized, analytical workloads are increasing, in terms of the number of users and departments using analytics, the amount of information to analyze and the complexity of the questions being asked of the system. These factors have been causing existing Business Intelligence system performance to dramatically deteriorate and in some cases to fail.

“Over the past year, as the need for greater insight into enterprise-wide operations has increased and the awareness of the benefits of business analytics has grown, most organizations’ related technology requirements have continued to evolve,” said Dan Vesset, Program Vice President of IDC’s business analytics research. “The features and functionality added to this release of Sybase IQ are likely to find a receptive audience among organizations turning to evidence-based decision making.”

Sybase IQ 15 delivers a smarter approach to enrich the enterprise analytics experience, enabling enterprises to increase performance, scale their environment and reduce the costs of maintaining the analytics environment. Specific benefits and new functionality include:

* Greater Flexibility: Independent scalability of compute power and storage capacity to support growing demands across multiple dimensions
* Record Speed: Dramatic query performance with parallel query processing capability and enhanced query algorithms
* Improved Information Availability: Improved large data loads, direct loads from client, and flexible multi-node loading capability across the shared-disk multiplex grid to add speed to data loading when needed; high availability and disaster recovery capability to ensure continuous availability of the analytics environment.
* Better Manageability: Improved resource/utilities management with a new generation of usability and manageability tools that aid deployment, automation, and monitoring capabilities.
* Enhanced Security: New features, including FIPS certified encryption algorithms; Kerberos based authentication, user-settable passwords, and support for IPV6.
* Greater Economy: New features, such as range partitioning and configurable tablespaces that lower TCO in management of Very Large Databases.
* More Power: Simple, user friendly multiplex grid administration
