Sybase Inc says its IQ bit-wise high-speed database decision support and search tool can now be used in conjunction with the full range of Adaptive Server database and tools and third party SQL query products via a single set of APIs. Previously Sybase required developers to use IQ-specific tools. Now called Adaptive Server IQ 11.5 to bring it into line with the company’s Adaptive Server relational database and tools, the data warehouse data software starts at $25,000 on Windows NT. Version 6.1 of the PowerDesigner modeling tool now includes interface to third party OLAP products. Sybase says its Highgate ROLAP relational online analytical processing tools – some of which are being created for it by Palo Alto, California-based WhiteLight Systems Inc – should arrive in the next couple of months. They were due by year-end (CI No 3,218). Sybase doesn’t say how much its data warehouse business is worth but claims between 30% and 40% of its Sybase database applications are doing warehousing. It claims 300 IQ customers since introduction in February 1996.
