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 organizations 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 TechRadar™: 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:
