Sybase offers Intelligence for Everyone to enterprise

Sybase, a SAP company and provider of enterprise and
mobile software, announced the availability of Sybase IQ 15.3, powered by a new
generation of shared everything Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) technology.

With this release, enterprise IT departments can overcome
scalability limitations of today’s data warehouses in many industries including
financial services, telecommunications, information providers, healthcare and

By implementing a business analytics information solution
that allows sharing of computing and data resources with the innovative Sybase
IQ PlexQ technology, enterprises can lead the next wave of data warehouse
transformation by breaking down user and information silos to drive analytics
adoption throughout the entire organization.

The transformative power of business analytics cannot be
fully realized until IT departments provide all users with real-time access to
information assets across the enterprise and enable integration of analytics
directly into core operational processes.

Yet current Enterprise Data Warehouse solutions are not
meeting the need. More than 70 percent of so-called enterprise data warehouses
actually serve only back-office or limited departmental use cases, according to
Gartner research.

Exploration of alternative data warehouse infrastructures
increased in 2010. Driving the next wave of adoption in business analytics
requires new approaches to data warehousing that overcome the user scalability,
application workload and dataset limitations of the current generation of
Enterprise Data Warehouse solutions.  

The release of Sybase IQ 15.3 with PlexQ technology
redefines enterprise-wide business analytics with a shared-everything MPP
architecture that scales to support real-time access to thousands of users, multiple
mixed workloads and massive datasets.

With Sybase IQ PlexQ, IT departments can implement
virtual data marts in order to optimize the experience for different
applications and user communities. Sybase IQ PlexQ dynamically balances query
workloads across nodes on the grid for massively parallel processing of complex
analytics at speeds 10 to 100 times faster than traditional data warehouses.

Unlike current shared-nothing MPP architectures that are
optimized for certain workloads, the combination of Sybase IQ’s columnar data
store, shared-everything grid, and logical servers ensures top performance for
any query, any workload over any dataset.

“Through our participation as a Sybase IQ 15.3 beta
test site, we have experienced its disruptively fast query performance, due to
the truly revolutionary new features that allow more servers to work on queries
in parallel,” said Scott Smith, vice president, comScore.

Sybase IQ 15.3 continues to expand Sybase IQ’s capacity to integrate business analytics into
applications and business workflows – a growing trend among leading
enterprises, by delivering APIs for both popular and emerging programming
languages as well as a new Web Services interface that simplifies integration
for software developers.

With Sybase IQ, enterprises can run complex analytical
models and algorithms within the database, eliminating the need for data mining
algorithms inside business logic and accelerating overall performance of
complex queries.

Sybase IQ also supports the analysis of unstructured data
often used in business workflows, such as proprietary document formats, emails,
Web content, and now enables fast analysis of unstructured multi-media data
within the database, further unifying disparate analysis and enabling customers
to implement a business analytics information solution.

“Enterprise IT departments are demanding new ways to
enhance their enterprise data warehouse systems to increase intelligence,
productivity and analytics capability across the enterprise,” said Brian
Vink, vice president, product management, Sybase.
