From Bloor Research’s viewpoint the column-based approach advocated
by Sybase will provide substantially better performance at lower
cost than traditional approaches for analytical, reporting and data
warehousing environments. Furthermore, it provides considerably
more flexibility than can be provided by appliance vendors. We therefore
see no obstacles to its continued success. We have previously advocated
that the product should be targeted more widely and we are
pleased to see that the company is addressing new sub-sectors within
the market, though we believe (and even more so with the new performance
boost and other features of this release) that Sybase IQ should be
simply aimed at the entire general-purpose data warehousing market.
Certainly it has particular strengths in particular areas but its overall
capabilities allow it to compete across the board.
