Sybase and MicroStrategy Team up to Dramatically Reduce Time for Implementation of Business Analytics

Sybase, Inc. (NYSE:SY), an industry leader in delivering enterprise and mobile software, today announced that it has entered into a new agreement with MicroStrategy® Incorporated, a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence software (NASDAQ:MSTR). Sybase will offer integrated packaging and pricing in an exclusive promotion on MicroStrategy products when sold with its Sybase® IQ analytics server.

Through the agreement, customers benefit from integrated packaging, joint product certification, and vendor-to-vendor technical support. In addition, Sybase can now offer MicroStrategy consulting services and education, thereby providing streamlined access to a broad range of combined business intelligence-related services. The two companies have committed to building demonstration solutions showcasing the capabilities of the combined technologies.

"Business intelligence and data warehousing solutions are expected to take on an increasing value in the present economic environment," said Dan Vesset, IDC Program Vice President of Business Analytics. "IDC believes the extension of the alliance between Sybase and MicroStrategy will simplify the acquisition, deployment, and use of the combined solution thus helping customers maximize the value of their BI investments."

The Sybase IQ analytics server is designed specifically to deliver dramatically faster results for mission-critical business intelligence (BI), data warehousing (DW) and reporting solutions. MicroStrategy has built-in optimizations that work seamlessly with Sybase IQ to deliver answers to critical business questions ten to hundreds of times faster at a significantly lower total cost of ownership than traditional row-based databases.

“MicroStrategy’s alliance with Sybase has produced solutions that help data management customers maximize the performance and value of their data and business intelligence environments,” said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy COO. “This agreement provides another example of both MicroStrategy and Sybase’s commitment to enhancing the user experience and how the collaboration between our companies continues to benefit our shared customers."

Sybase and MicroStrategy have collaborated for over 10 years to deliver great value for enterprise customers by combining their core expertise in BI, Data Integration and DW technologies. In June of 2008, Sybase unveiled the Sybase Analytic Appliance, which employs MicroStrategy 8™, along with its own Sybase IQ and Sybase PowerDesigner® products, to supply enhanced analytics and ease the ever-increasing burden placed on enterprise data warehouses, data marts and reporting systems. By delivering cost efficient, high-performance solutions, the new agreement addresses the needs of a growing user population demanding advanced analytics on large data volumes.

“By extending our relationship with Sybase’s preferred BI reporting tools partner MicroStrategy, we are providing our customers who depend on analytics to move their businesses forward with a greatly expanded set of integrated reporting, analytic and dashboarding capabilities at a price point that exceeds customer expectations during these uncertain economic times,” said Dr. Raj Nathan, Chief Marketing Officer, Sybase. “The combination of Sybase IQ and MicroStrategy’s business intelligence software in one solution will drive down the cost of deploying reporting and analytic solutions, enabling organizations to make better informed business decisions from all their enterprise data to meet and exceed revenue targets and margin goals.”

Industry after industry is under siege as companies embrace digital transformation (DX) to disrupt existing business models and disintermediate their competitor’s customer relationships. But what do we mean by “Digital Transformation”? The coupling of granular, real-time data (e.g., smartphones, connected devices, smart appliances, wearables, mobile commerce, video surveillance) with modern technologies (e.g., cloud native apps, big data architectures, hyper-converged technologies, artificial intelligence, blockchain) to enhance products, processes, and business-decision making with customer, product and operational insights.
