SAP Unites BI and SAP Sybase IQ to Boost the Value of Big Data

At this point we all understand that “Big Data” is only realized if it can be converted into actionable information and delivered to those who need it for in-the-moment decisions. But, at what cost? Many of the solutions being offered today are not aligned with the size of your business or what your business really needs…the combination of SAP Sybase IQ and SAP BusinessObjects BI suite are helping companies to net the critical insights they need to turn Big Data into true business value at an affordable cost.

SAP Sybase IQ server delivers high-performance analytics to power dashboards, scorecards, and ad hoc business reports that are needed for fast, cost effective mission-critical business intelligence. While the BusinessObjects BI suite offers instant access to information to everyone in your organization, supporting faster and better decision making.

Think of IQ as the engine that maximizes the power of BusinessObjects BI. Residing below the application layer and then acting as a repository of data for BusinessObjects to draw its data from for reporting and analytics. In this combined scenario, SAP Sybase IQ manages the data intelligently on the back-end, optimizing it to respond to queries and efficiently summarize the necessary data, with a significant performance advantage over traditional, often disparate, databases. With IQ acting as an intelligent data-funneling engine, a typical query that might take 10-15 minutes from a traditional database can be reduced to 2-3 seconds!

This combined solution allows you to give your business users the information they need to get the job done. SAP Sybase IQ supports all types of workloads in BusinessObjects BI, in even the most challenging reporting and analytics environments. Running on industry-standard hardware, IQ removes performance bottlenecks and reduces IT costs by eliminating the need for intensive performance tuning and optimization by database administrators. Imagine the hero you would be if you gave your business users timely, self-service access to all the information across your enterprise. IQ can help transform decision making with fact-based, high-quality data, enabling your people to achieve remarkable results thanks to insight throughout your business network.

But, don’t just take my word for it – check out the benefits our customers are gaining with this winning combination!

      Hi Courtney.

      Could you please provide more detailed information about exclusiveness to using Sybase IQ and  SAP BO as bundle, other than 3rd party BI, by example IBM Cognos or Microstrategy BI?

      Is there any special features for IQ-BO solution?

      Hi Mikhail -

      SAP Sybase IQ is an open platform, and continues to work with a variety of 3rdparty BI products, including Cognos and Microstrategy.  This bundle does not imply that IQ does not work with other tools.  It is an attractive offering of BusinessObjects packaged with an underlying high performance analytics database – SAP Sybase IQ, with some optimizations around performance.
