Big Data: Just Getting Bigger

Sybase has unveiled a new version of the Sybase IQ high performance column-based analytics database, due to be generally available by the end of November. "This really is an extension into big data - and big data is characterized by a lot of things - but we see the trends in the market around MapReduce and Hadoop in database analytics and we have added those capabilities into IQ 15. 4," Dan Lahl, director of product marketing at Sybase, tells 5 Minute Briefing. With the new release of IQ, he notes, Sybase IQ provides customers a "have it your way" approach.
