DUBLIN, Calif.- July 29, 2008 - Sybase, Inc. (NYSE:SY), the largest enterprise software and services company exclusively focused on managing and mobilizing information, today announced that Sybase and QlikTech, the world’s fastest-growing business intelligence (BI) software vendor, will deliver a powerful, easy-to-use analytics solution that enables user-driven dashboards, ad-hoc analysis and reporting.
“Business intelligence is no longer just the domain of trained information professionals, but rather used every day by employees at all levels,” said Dan Lahl, director of product marketing, Intelligent Enterprise Solutions, Sybase. "Both QlikView and Sybase® IQ handle enormous amounts of data, and can accommodate large numbers of users, providing a hearty platform for conducting complex analysis that can be easily interpreted by the average business user. Separately, Sybase IQ and QlikView approach analytics in a non-traditional manner, and together, they represent the next-generation of business intelligence."
When it comes to performance and scalability in an analytics environment, Sybase IQ produces incredible results because of its unique column-based architecture, patented indexing and scalable grid. Likewise, QlikView takes a next-generation approach with its in-memory business analysis software which provides a unique associative analysis experience, leading to an immediate advantage in making informed business decisions. Rather than following a structured linear path, QlikView associates related data as a user clicks. Unlike online analytical processing (OLAP) technologies, QlikView operates in memory, making it easy to alter a metric without the need to build a new aggregate data search. These differentiators make it possible for users to make informed decisions in a timelier manner.
“Sybase IQ and QlikView created a new window into our organization,” said Allana Cummings, vice president and chief information officer, Children’s Hospital in Omaha. “The faster access and visual analysis allow much greater insight into the data we need to provide optimal care for our patients.”
“Users love QlikView because it allows them to use their information the way they think, analyzing complex data in an intuitive way,” said Anthony Deighton, senior vice president of marketing, QlikTech. “Sybase IQ’s robust analytics engine, with its patented data indexing and compression technology, provides a foundation with unmatched scalability on which QlikView can deliver user-driven analysis. To us, QlikView and Sybase IQ complement each other perfectly.”
QlikTech’s flagship product, QlikView, simplifies analysis for everyone. QlikView works the way your mind works – making associations by connecting data from many sources in a few clicks. This patented in-memory association technology brings fast results and better decision making to a wide range of customers and industries.
