We used to believe that Sybase IQ faced two hurdles: its column-based technology (which was not well understood by the market) and disbelief that it could genuinely offer the performance advantages it claims. However, we do not think that either of these are obstacles anymore. In the first case, Sybase has proved the column-based concept with repeated success in many leading companies. Secondly, both Sybase, as well as the appliance vendors, have made it quite clear that better analytics performance is truly possible, whetting the appetites of companies who still struggle with traditional relational databases in queryintensive applications.
