Enterprise software company Sybase has today announced Sybase IQ 15, the latest version of its analytics server. Sybase said that the new release would help enterprises make better informed business-critical decisions.
Included in the new release are improved manageability tools, designed to enhance deployment and monitoring, increased scalability of computing power and storage capacity, and vastly improved query-response times. New security features include Federal Information Processing Standards-certified encryption algorithms, Kerberos-based authentication and support for IPv6.
According to Sybase, the analytics server can deliver more accurate analysis and reporting at greatly improved speeds. This means that it can be used to make informed business decisions based on real-time data, the firm said.
"Sybase IQ 15 builds upon our strong heritage in data analytics, and represents the most mature and feature-rich column-oriented analytics offering in the marketplace today," said Dr Raj Nathan, senior vice president and marketing chief at Sybase.
Dan Vesset, programme vice president of business analytics research at analyst firm IDC, added, "Over the past year, as the need for greater insight into enterprise-wide operations has increased and the awareness of the benefits of business analytics has grown, most organisations' related technology requirements have continued to evolve.
"The features and functionality added to this release of Sybase IQ are likely to find a receptive audience among organisations turning to evidence-based decision making."
