The Leaders quadrant, as described in the Gartner report, "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."

Innovation Group, a Sybase IQ customer, offers Innovation Analytics to provide business intelligence (BI) and management information (MI) solutions to risk carriers to identify and resolve issues and challenges in the insurance industry. Innovation Group required a data analysis engine with the ability to run its comprehensive BI/MI provisioning both internally and externally.
According to the report, "The data warehouse DBMS has evolved from being an information store to a support for reporting and traditional BI platforms, and now into a broader analytics infrastructure that supports operational analytics, performance management, and other new applications and uses such as operational BI and operational technologies (technologies that stream data from devices such as smart meters). Organizations are adding additional workloads with online transaction processing (OLTP) access, and data loading latency is falling to near-continuous loading."
