What is most valuable?

Valuable features for us include the compression, speed, fast response time, and easy object maintenance.

How has it helped my organization?

It has provided us with cube query and faster data upload time.

What needs improvement?

I think the universe should be part of the Sybase IQ tool set.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the solution for about 10 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Sybase IQ is very stable. However, during earlier stages when the server crashes, you need Sybase technical support to help you out.

We did not encounter any issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

The experts on Sybase IQ were very few in number, but they were really knowledgeable.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I guess it is the price competition offered by other vendors that causes companies to migrate to other data warehouse databases.

This is one of the simplest tools to install and it is very easy to scale.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Negotiate based on the features required.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was not involved with product evaluation. However, this was the tool I normally would recommend for Sybase archive solutions.

What other advice do I have?

Evaluate, carry out benchmarks, and do an ROI before buying.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

15.4 & 16.1.
