Going to extremes
In today’s ultracompetitive business environments, it is critical to have the ability to collect, store, manage, protect, query, and generate reports from larger and larger volumes of complex data. From retail stores to hospital emergency rooms, immediate access to accurate, relevant data is a basic business requirement.
To create and sustain a competitive advantage in the face of exponential data growth and increasing customer expectations for superior service, your data management system must deliver extremely high performance, unconstrained scalability, rich functionality, bulletproof security, and cost-effectiveness.
For more than 30,000 customers around the world, the solution is SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE).1
For example, Globe Telecom in the Philippines turned their business upside down with the help of SAP Sybase ASE. They replaced industry-standard calling cards with air-loading, enabling them to build a data management infrastructure that lets them market aggressively and closely manage costs. Rodell Garcia, CIO, explains why: “In terms of ROI, our SAP Sybase ASE system is a critical enabler of revenue generation; the payback period is certainly very short.”2
Meanwhile, electronic medical records specialist, MIQS, used SAP Sybase ASE to present doctors with the critical combination of information they need when treating kidney dialysis patients. The result was a 40% reduction in mortality rates.2
Finally, India is famous for its huge railway network, but also for its congested stations, as passengers queue to buy tickets for trains departing the same day. Working with SAP technology, Indian Railways and the Center for Railway Information Systems built a ticketing system so passengers without reservations can buy tickets at any station, at any time, from dedicated terminals and automatic machines. The result is no more long queues – and lots of valuable data for the company to analyze and act on.2
