I first started with Sybase 4.8 on an SCO Unix system in 1988 How did you get into your profession? What interested you about your career? I started my career in 1985 as an IBM Mainframe developer for a Swiss insurance company. Insurance and financial institutions were among the few companies that offered any career opportunity in computer programming, as it was called back in the day. I was hit by the computer bug ever since I first played Space Invaders on an Apple II. Access to computers was not as easy as today, that’s why I opted for a career in (more…)

The Sybase folks made up about 10% of the 6,500 attendees of TechED/TechWave. Interestingly, many SAP TechED attendees found their way into Sybase sessions. There is a growing interest in the SAP community to learn more about Sybase products.

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.

Applying the same cost saving actions for small and mid-size business have far more deep reaching consequences. The reaining resource pool is much smaller. That’s why we created a remote DBA support structure that offers expert level support for a fraction of an employee’s salary. This allows companies to keep up with their support demand while maintaining cash flow. More importantly, the support team is local and you get a chance to meet us face to face. Read More
