Newsletter March 2011

Looking for something specific?


Wow, Q1 of 2011 is almost over. I hope everybody is busy and takes advantage of the upswing in IT activities over the past few weeks.

On February 24th we had our first Sybase user group meeting at our offices. I am pleased with the total turnout, although there were way more people attending online than in person. I still think that the online folks missed out on pizza and drinks, plus the door giveaway of an ASE 15 book.

Lou Stanton gave an amazing insight into Sybase IQ's query processing engine and how you can get the most out of your Sybase IQ environment, plus an outlook to Sybase IQ 15.3.

I do have a copy of the presentation available, just send me an email and I will respond with an attachment.

Before I go, here's a little bit of self-promotion. Sybase was kind enough to invite me to a video interview. Please click here to view the video.

Thank you for being a loyal reader of my newsletter.

Like last year, I tried to condense information on what's new or upcoming in the major database systems into a single article.

Sybase User Group Meeting April 2011

As I stated last year I am determined to revive the Sybase User Group Meeting in Tampa and the next one is already planned and scheduled.

Please mark your calendar: Thursday April 7th 2011

This time we welcome Jeff Tallman as our guest speaker. Jeff is a Sr. Evangelist at Sybase. Jeff focus's on Adaptive Server Enterprise, Replication Server and Sybase IQ. His long term career supporting information management technologies has given him a depth of knowledge on the Sybase data management products that is amazing.

Jeff will present in person from our offices and we will stream it live to our out-of-town attendees.

Jeff's in-depth Sybase ASE performance tips and in-memory database best practices will be a great topic for everybody, especially for our SAP friends who will be introduced to Sybase ASE in the upcoming months.

Don't forget, we will have food and drinks as well as door giveaways again.

I will send out another note when the RSVP link is up and running.

As always, thank you for reading.

Peter Dobler
