Next month, we are very excited to launch SAP ASE 16. It is the culmination of significant efforts of the integrated SAP and Sybase engineering teams and the first major release since the SAP acquisition of Sybase.
SAP ASE 16 enables companies to power a new class of extreme transactional applications by providing scalability and speed to support higher throughput and lower latency, with growing data and users in the cloud and on premise; security to deliver extreme transactional performance securely, while providing data privacy; and, simplicity of database operations to maximize operational efficiency and lower costs.
What’s new? SAP ASE 16 delivers increased scalability and speed with extensive optimization in its transaction concurrency management, query plan execution, data compression and utilization of computing resources in large SMP servers. Internal benchmarks show near linear scalability with transaction throughputs as high as one million transactions per minute. Security enforcement and system auditability have been augmented to provide customers more flexibility to adapt to their specific regulatory compliance needs. A broader integration with SAP Control Center and a wealth of other enhancements delivers simplified management of SAP ASE installations reducing its overall cost of ownership. And, we’ve significantly improved the integration with other SAP products, such as SAP Business Suite and SAP HANA, further enhancing performance, manageability and interoperability in SAP-centric installations.
More exciting news! Along with ISUG, the International Sybase Users Group, we are hosting a special ISUG-Tech Conference in Atlanta, GA April 14-17. At the event you’ll experience the first exclusive look at the new features in SAP ASE 16, and get to talk with the engineers and experts who worked to deliver it. I hope that you will join us!
