Sybase Positioned in Leaders Quadrant in 2010 DBMS Magic Quadrant

Originally published February 17, 2010

Sybase, Inc., an industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, recently announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant in its Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse (DW) Database Management System (DBMS) report, authored by Donald Feinberg and Mark A. Beyer (January 2010).

According to the report, Gartner includes in its Leaders quadrant for data warehouse DBMSs "those vendors that demonstrate the greatest degree of support for data warehouses of all sizes, with large numbers of concurrent users and the management of mixed data warehousing workloads. These vendors lead the market 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. Because of this track record, leaders also represent the lowest risk for successful data warehouse implementations, such as lower performance with increasing mixed workloads and database sizes and complexity. Additionally, the maturity of this market demands that leaders maintain a strong vision regarding the key points emerging during the past year: mixed workload management for end-user service-level satisfaction and data volume management."

"We believe our position in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse DBMS is further proof that we are delivering on Sybase IQ's promise of smarter analytics with unsurpassed query performance for the most complex analytics tasks within an affordable and manageable environment," said Dan Lahl, Director of Analytics, Sybase, Inc. "To address the growing customer demands for high performance analytics from standard hardware and storage technologies, the unique column-optimized query engine innovations in Sybase IQ harness the power of modern day multi-core chips in both SMP and shared disk grid configurations to deliver industry leading performance without the need for specialized hardware. Furthermore, when combined with Sybase Complex Event Processing technologies, Sybase IQ also provides a solid foundation for building ultra low latency analytics applications."

The Gartner report also states "Gartner clients increasingly report performance-constrained data warehouses during inquires. Based on these inquires, we estimate that nearly 70% of data warehouses experience performance-constrained issues of various types."

As the world's leading column-based analytics server, with over 1,800 customers in over 3,100 projects worldwide, Sybase IQ has been proven to deliver faster results for mission-critical business intelligence, data warehouse and reporting solutions on any standard hardware and operating systems.

HealthTrans, one of the largest and fastest growing pharmacy benefits administrators in the United States, provides its clients the tools and clinical expertise to manage their pharmacy benefit programs more efficiently and effectively. To address rapid growth, HealthTrans chose Sybase IQ as the analytics platform for its mission-critical internal and customer-facing reporting and analytics applications because it was proven to deliver the business advantage the company required.

"We were looking for a solution that would allow us and our customers to turn mounds of data into meaningful and actionable information," said Duane Green, Vice President of HealthTrans' Systems Operations. "Speed, cost savings, low maintenance...what more can you ask for?"
