In Forrester’s 56-criteria evaluation of EDW vendors, the firm specifically found that Sybase was among those companies that "lead by offering high-performance, scalable, flexible and robust EDW solutions."
Forrester’s evaluation states, "Sybase’s mature columnar EDW platform, coupled with a fresh injection of developmental capital from new parent SAP, gives it a competitive advantage. Expect SAP Sybase to leverage these strengths, plus intensify its focus on in-memory and in-database analytics, to grow its share of the EDW market among large enterprises requiring robust real-time analytics solutions."
The Forrester report cites many differentiators of Sybase IQ including its integration with Sybase data modeling and data integration tools, the ability to run on a broad range of software and hardware platforms, and considerable extensibility and customization through in-database analytics, LDMs, UDFs and stored procedures.
In its assessment of SAP, the report states "with a focus on massively parallel scale-out through its [SAP] HANA technology, SAP positions [SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse] BW/[SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse Accelerator] BWA as an increasingly scalable platform for heterogeneous data analytics environments of SAP and non-SAP solutions. Through the acquisition of Sybase and rapid delivery of the promised next-generation [SAP] HANA appliance, SAP distances itself from the slow-moving competitor of yore and becomes a technology pacesetter in this segment."
Moreover, the report says, "Its [SAP’s] differentiating go-to-market message for EDW focuses on in-memory, real-time, columnar technologies. It has an aggressive acquisition and partnering push around EDW."
