As the world’s leading column-based enterprise data warehouse, with more than 2,100 customers in more than 4,000 projects worldwide, Sybase IQ delivers faster, more accurate results for mission-critical business intelligence (BI), data warehousing, predictive analytics and reporting solutions on industry standard hardware and operating systems to enterprises across the globe. In combination with BI technology from SAP, Sybase IQ provides a comprehensive data warehousing and database platform to meet customer needs.

According to the Gartner report, the Leaders quadrant “contains the vendors that demonstrate the greatest support for data warehouses of all sizes, with large numbers of concurrent users and management of mixed data warehousing workloads. These vendors lead in data warehousing by consistently demonstrating customer satisfaction and strong support, as well as longevity in the data warehouse DBMS market, with strong hardware alliances. Hence, Leaders also represent the lowest risk for data warehouse implementations, in relation to, among other things, performance as mixed workloads, database sizes and complexity increase. Additionally, the market’s maturity demands that Leaders maintain a strong vision for the key trends of the past year: mixed-workload management for end-user service-level satisfaction and data volume management.”

“Sybase continues to hold a strong leadership position and serves some of the most loyal and happy customers in the data warehousing market,” said Dan Lahl, senior director, Product Marketing, Sybase, an SAP company. “Sybase IQ revolutionized ‘Big Data Analytics’ in 2011, with the included in-DBMS MapReduce capabilities and connectors to Hadoop in IQ 15.4 that unleash analysis of all enterprise data in a single DBMS platform. We believe our leadership position in this report confirms Sybase’s continued adoption as the data warehousing backbone for leading enterprises. Moving forward, the combination of Sybase and SAP data warehousing products will provide next-generation data warehousing solutions that address the growing demand for the full spectrum of analytics, from real time to Big Data.”
