Sybase IQ Is First Market Leading Column-Based Analytics Solution To Offer Full Text Search

By Sybase

Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), an industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, today announced the scheduled general availability of Sybase® IQ 15.2, the latest version of the industry leading analytics server with more than 1,800 customers. With full text search, query federation and web-enabled analytics, Sybase IQ 15.2 delivers dramatically faster and consistently more accurate business answers and reporting by turning raw data into actionable information through analytics.

'Sybase IQ 15.2 is the first analytical database system to build in text search and analysis,' said Seth Grimes, president of analytics strategy consultancy Alta Plana. 'It is widely estimated that a vast majority of enterprise information is locked in unstructured text, in forms that range from e-mail, survey responses, and contact-center notes to Web pages, news articles, and social media. Join 'unstructured information' to Sybase IQ's in-database analytics and column-based architecture'”real assets for high-performance, high-throughput, 'big data' analysis'”and you have in 15.2 the most comprehensive analytical DBMS on the market.'

According to an independent report, 'more than 70% of information in organisations is unstructured content, which is often not accessible in data integration projects, largely because of technology limitations. Today, several tools are tackling the sizeable challenge of integrating structured data with unstructured and semistructured content.' (Forrester TechRadarâ„¢: Enterprise Data Integration, Q1 2010, Forrester Research, Inc., February 2010.)

Sybase IQ 15.2 is the first market leading vendor to offer full text search and query federation on a column-based analytics database:

  • Text Search and Analysis - extracts key business insights currently locked in e-mail, file systems, and other unstructured formats. Users can retrieve relevant documents by searching for multiple or alternative words and phrases and scoring the frequency with which a term occurs within a document.
  • Query Federation - provides immediate access to information previously unavailable due to data movement or restrictions. Users can access information without it having to be moved or copied to a data warehouse, allowing for a greater reach of analysis and decision-making based upon a more holistic view of an organisation's data.

In addition, Sybase IQ 15.2 also offers the following new functionalities:

  • Web-Enabled Analytics - extends support for leading Web 2.0 development tool languages'”such as Python, PERL, PHP, and OLE-DB'”so that developers can quickly and more easily develop and test prototype models and bring dynamic analytical applications to the web.
  • Real-Time Loading - makes information available immediately for analysis.

'Sybase IQ is best known for its extreme performance, allowing decision-makers to analyse business trends, predict outcomes, and revise strategies, often in a matter of seconds,' said Dereck Daymond, managing director at Sybase Australia and New Zealand. 'With Sybase IQ 15.2, enterprises are now able to analyse previously untapped sources of information, such as web content and email, to deliver smarter answers across structured and unstructured data.

'Financial services institutions require greater speed, flexibility and access to critical business information to make informed, real-time decisions,' said Larry Ryan, chief technologist, Financial Services Industry, HP. 'Using HP servers and storage, Sybase IQ enables clients to gain competitive advantage by capturing and quickly indexing unstructured information as well as correlating it with existing content.'

Recent Sybase IQ Benchmark on HP

Sybase and HP, along with Red Hat, announced earlier this year that Sybase IQ achieved the top data warehousing benchmark result among currently published non-clustered Linux® and x86 systems in the TPC Benchmarkâ„¢ H (TPC-H) at the 1 TB scale factor.
