As a new product management intern working with IQ, I have had the experience of looking at a brand new product and thinking, where do I even start? This also comes with the well-known experience of not knowing what to do, where to look or how to fix problems.
Luckily, I have been able to work with wonderful people and many resources to learn about SAP Sybase IQ and many of the great features. One of the ways that I have been able to begin to explore IQ, is by following the Quick Start Guide. This got me installed, set-up and starting to use key features of the extensive software. I have also been given the opportunity to update these guides, with the new features and capabilities of IQ 16, after I got it working, of course.
If you would like to get started with IQ, whether that be installation and setup, learning how to use it or walkthroughs of many features, check out the guides at: http://www.sap.com/campaign/ne/sybase/iq_16_free_trial_download/iq_quick_start_guide.epx
