An InDetail Paper by Bloor Research – Sybase IQ 15.4
Sybase IQ is a columnar database that was designed to support data warehousing from its inception. This approach has now been copied many times and has been vindicated in organizations worldwide: its benefits have been well rehearsed and do not need repeating here. However, it is worth bearing in mind that Sybase IQ is, and always has been, the leading column-based vendor in the market. It now has the benefit of the reach and scale of its parent SAP as well as, in this release, an extensive 'big data' capability. This leaves Sybase well positioned to continue to capture market share.
