Sybase (NYSE: SY), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, today announced the availability of the Sybase IQ Real-Time Loading Solution, a combined software and services offering to provide continuous loading of real-time data into the Sybase IQ analytics server.
The new offering provides enterprises with the ability to utilise fresh data for greater insight by continuously loading transaction changes, which enables real-time reporting and decision-making.
"This solution is intended to take organisations beyond intermittent batch loading to continuous loading of operational database changes," said Dan Lahl, Director of Sybase Intelligent Enterprise Solutions. "With the Sybase IQ Real-Time Loading Solution, customers can make better informed business decisions at any time-based on the freshest information."
Spice Telecom is one of many companies using this solution to meet the challenge of analysing in real time ever-growing data volumes in a very competitive market. Spice Telecom adds a new customer every second of every business day. To win in this type of environment requires rich, real-time business intelligence capability. Spice Telecom utilises ASE as a staging repository, in conjunction with Replication Server and PowerDesigner, to load external data sources in real-time into Sybase IQ. This new real-time analytics capability has enabled Spice Telecom to analyse trends and ask the "what if" questions that were previously out of reach. With Sybase IQ replacing an OLTP system, load windows have shortened from hours to minutes, and the Real-Time Loading Solution has increased both data freshness and quality. "I am happy to say the Sybase environment actually did wonders for us," said Sanjay Srivastava, IT General Manager for Spice Telecom.

Separately, Sybase (NYSE: SY), the largest enterprise software and services company exclusively focused on managing and mobilising information, today announced the planned availability of its Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) Cluster Edition for AIX and HP-UX 11i. This additional UNIX support is another expansion to the ecosystem of supported products and platforms for ASE Cluster Edition, including third party monitoring tools and replication technology.

Support for these new platforms demonstrates that Sybase continues to execute on its Unwired Enterprise strategy by delivering on the promise of open, reliable systems that meet our customer's ever-growing data management requirements.
