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

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.
Fast forward: Last year SAP announced end of life for support and maintenance (no more bug fixes, security patches or enhancements) for the following products:
- SAP (Sybase) ASE 16: December 31st 2025
- SAP (Sybase) Replication Server 16: December 31st 2025
- SAP (Sybase) IQ 16.1: December 31st 2024
- SAP (Sybase) SQL Anywhere 17.0: December 31st 2025
- Earlier end of maintenance dates are in effect for any previous releases and many have already been expired.
Since there are no new releases
