What's New

Sybase - Strolling Down Memory Lane

In April of 2010, SAP announced the purchase of Sybase. At the time there was much confusion on what to make of it. In a
January 2011 Newsletter
, I outlined my thoughts on what the acquisition could mean.

In January of 2014, SAP dropped the Sybase name from all its acquired Sybase products to integrate them into the SAP portfolio. In the same year, there was the second to last ISUG-TECH Annual Conference in Atlanta and the emotions ran high.

At this ISUG-TECH conference, SAP announced the GA of SAP ASE 16. It was a big reveal and the name change issue was quickly replaced with excitement.

  • SAP (Sybase) ASE 16: December 31st 2025

Planning And Executing A Successful SQL Server Database Migration

Migrating an existing database to SQL Server can be a taunting task. No matter if your current database is Oracle, Sybase, DB2 or MySQL, the core of the migration tasks are almost always identical. A SQL Server database migration project can be broken down into 6 steps.


What You Need to Know to Migrate Your Oracle Database to the Cloud

Many organizations are making the switch from on-prem to cloud databases. These cloud native warehouses can provide more reliable and timely access, cost-efficiency, and automated backup and recovery. If you are using any on-premises version of Oracle Database, you might want to consider whether moving to the Oracle Database Cloud is right for your company. There are numerous migration methods, and the process can be very simple when you work with an expert. Try reviewing these key factors prior to selecting a migration method and save yourself some additional time.

Customer Case Study: Financial Technology Powerhouse Upgrades and Migrates Sybase Database in Record Time


The financial services firm was using Sybase on AIX to run mission-critical processes, but performance and stability issues were becoming increasingly problematic. This system took a lot of manpower to maintain. It also lacked the necessary scaling and performance to improve their processing. They decided to upgrade to the newest version, ASE 16 and to migrate to Linux OS.

Customer Case Study: Leading US Bank Company Moves SAP ASE to AWS for High Availability, Scalability and Cost Savings


This company is one of the largest US banks with 755 branches and multiple financial products. Such a large organization needs an efficient, scalable computing platform. At the time, they were managing their workload with an older version of Sybase on AIX. This required constant management with a dedicated in house data center, and infrastructure team. Updates, patches, and hardware overhauls were becoming costly and time consuming. The company recognized that a cloud platform could increase their team’s productivity and better support the high demands of the financial services business. After careful consideration, they decided to upgrade to the latest version of Sybase (ASE 16) and migrate from AIX to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
