Sybase Roadmap 2019

By | Sybase
It’s been a while since SAP released a roadmap for its Sybase portfolio. The wait is over; SAP published roadmaps for all its Sybase products. Sybase ASE, Sybase IQ, Sybase Replication Server, and SQL Anywhere. These roadmaps are available on SAP’s roadmap website https://www.sap.com/products/roadmaps.html Unfortunately, the publications are sorted by popularity, and the Sybase documents quickly dropped off the main page and into the large pool of thousands of roadmaps for all of SAP’s products. We made it easy for you to get to the documents through this blog post. Please share it with your friends and colleagues.   Sybase ASE   Highlights QP enhancements including diagnostics Enablement of secure key storage Data migration tool On-premise capture and cloud playback with workload analyzer Always-On Enhancements XOLTP Enhancements Download the Sybase ASE Roadmap 2019     Sybase IQ   Highlights Extreme-Scale Support for GPFS Export data in zipped format Improved query performance Increase the file-size limit from 4TB to 100TB SAP Software ecosystem integration SAP HANA Dynamic Tiering Heterogenues multistore tables 7-digit TIMESTAMP asynchronous table replicas SAP HANA Data Lake Download the Sybase IQ Roadmap 2019     Sybase Replication Server   Highlights Sybase ASE New Feature Support Sybase ASE 16 (more…)

Data Connect: SAP Renews Commitment To Sybase

By | Dobler Consulting Newsletter
  Data Connect: SAP Renews Commitment To Sybase What’s New   Last Quarter – I published a newsletter announcing the End of Mainstream Maintenance for Sybase ASE 16 and Sybase Replication Server 16 by December 31st, 2025 and for Sybase IQ 16 by December 31st, 2024. Furthermore, there was no successor release listed in the SAP internal release schedule, this left room for all kinds of speculations and assumptions that caught the attention of SAP. Their initial response with the explanation were semantic differences between End of Mainstream Maintenance and End of Life Support, although valid, did little to calm the anxiety. Last Month – SAP hosted an event in Washington DC to officially announce a Roadmap for Sybase ASE and Sybase Replication Server. This was a well-received communication and step forward in instilling confidence with the install base. Unfortunately, the way SAP publishes Roadmaps forced the documents to fall off the top placements and are difficult to find. I made it easy for you. Download the Roadmaps here.   Sybase ASE Roadmap Sybase Replication Server Roadmap   Last Week – I had a face-to-face meeting with the global SAP Leadership for database and technology. In my estimate, this was (more…)

A Look at Azure Security Center

By | Azure
You can’t be too careful with the cloud. More enterprises are using cloud and hybrid environments for their organizational workloads. Microsoft Azure is a major player in this trend. In an assessment of cloud platforms and services provided by iDataLabs, Azure holds over 19% of the market share, the second biggest slice of the pie. This industry trend means more companies need to be prepared for cloud level security. Microsoft offers an in-house security solution in the form of Azure’s Security Center that is convenient and powerful. We want to talk briefly about what it does, and some new and exciting enhancements that have increased its scope as an organizational security tool. What is Security Center? This is Microsoft’s unified security solution that provides a platform for protocol deployment, monitoring and prevention. The service is available to Azure subscription users as a free extension or as an additional fee (Standard subscription). The free version covers your Azure cloud. But if you use hybrid environments and additional platforms, the Standard subscription allows you to deploy Security Center across your whole system. Intelligent and Adaptive – Azure Security Center sets itself apart from other security protocols with its adaptive analytics. Using machine (more…)

2018 Trends for Database and Data Management – Six Months Later (Trend 3)

By | Database Technology Trends
More Companies Will Die From Data indigestion Than From Data Starvation   Read about Trend 2 It’s True – companies today are swimming in data. And all the while, they are spending more money to create data, store data, manage data and secure data. Plus, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the Internet of Everything (IoE)  thing, is really just getting started. Data lakes, warehouses and silos are increasingly becoming obsolete words in the modern vocabulary of data management. A new approach of data architecture that facilitates orchestrating, securing and rapidly deploying data from various structured and unstructured sources to create actionable value is emerging. When data doubles every two years, the new tools and approaches to data management, real-time analytics and actionable solutions will no longer be nice-to-have. They will be got-to-have. Business data now is now a two-edged sword, it presents an existential opportunity and an existential crisis for your company. Want to avoid the crisis and leverage the opportunity?   Join Dobler Consulting and Anthony Antonello, VP, SAP HANA Global Center of Excellence, for a Live Webinar June 19th, 2018 @ 2:00 PM EDT for: SAP Sybase Roadmap 2018 View Video Replay and Download Presentation (more…)

2018 Trends for Database and Data Management – Six Months Later (Trend 2)

By | Database Technology Trends
The Rise of Real-Time Transactional Data   Read about Trend 1 Read about Trend 3 It seems analyst are hard at work to find the right wording that connects the promise of in-memory technology, to advanced analytics to multiple database sources, at the precise moment of transaction with the customer. Forrester calls it the odd-looking word  “translytic” as in “translytic data platforms”, Gartner uses the term “hybrid transaction / analytical processing, hopefully, HTAP for short, and IDC uses the rather straightforward “analytic transactional processing” which could mean everything and nothing at the same time. These rather athletic examples of concept mash-ups got me thinking about basketball and that maybe in-memory technology which makes it really all happen, is a point guard and that analytic engines and datasets are the centers and forwards of the game. And who was inarguably the greatest point guard in the history of the game, guy named Magic – Magic Johnson. So maybe the word the analyst are searching for is Magic… My point is, that technology and dry sounding words are not the point at all. Creating business value, creating Magic is the point. It’s when data meets analytics, meets creativity and meets the customer (more…)

2018 Trends for Database and Data Management – Six Months Later (Trend 1)

By | Database Technology Trends
Enterprise database platforms are expected to expand beyond traditional relational database models to include non-relational alternative models   Read about Trend 2 Six months in, it seems quaint now to say that the world of non-relational data has exploded. Customers now expect general purpose database platforms will support a whole new level of workloads and functions. This is driven in part by the emergence of the non-relational technologies of NoSQL and Hadoop and the creative force to extract new value from data. The new standard is the ability to use multiple data types, video, graph and spatial capabilities, in addition to data virtualization and data virtualization support. Real time data analysis is now the norm and no longer the exception. Six months in, is it safe to say we are at the acceptance level of this trend but implementation and vision remains another matter?  Want to find out more about how your company can leverage the power of non-relational data and your database platform?   Join Dobler Consulting and Anthony Antonello, VP, SAP HANA Global Center of Excellence, for a Live Webinar June 19th, 2018 @ 2:00 PM EDT for: SAP Sybase Roadmap 2018 View Video Replay and Download Presentation (more…)
