As a product manager for SAP Sybase IQ, I am thrilled to see IQ featured in the SAP Developer Center. Not only is SAP Sybase IQ a powerful analytics database with extreme compression of large volumes of data, and fast query response, it is a platform for building smart applications. This has been proven time and again by our partners, who have created tools, function libraries, and solutions that take advantage of IQ’s impressive performance and scalability. SAP Sybase IQ provides a rich and standard SQL dialect with built-in OLAP functions, ODBC and JDBC access, a published API for writing logic that executes within the database for fast performance, web service support – both as client and server, and database drivers for popular web development programming languages: PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby and ADO.NET. Using our Java User Defined Functions (UDFs), you can also integrate IQ with Hadoop – to bring together Big Data and enterprise data, for richer business insights. We hope you will give SAP Sybase IQ a try with our free Express Edition and Quick Start Guide to make you productive quickly.
On behalf of the SAP Sybase IQ product team, we look forward to a fruitful partnership with the SAP developer community!
