It is difficult to spot weaknesses in Sybase IQ, either from a technical perspective or from the point of view of marketing. Certainly, we would like to see spatial capabilities built into the database but the company is already addressing this issue. Other than that we are impressed with Sybase’s support for big data, either in conjunction with Hadoop or directly, and we are pleased to see the implementation of both MapReduce and R within the database, as well as support for PMML. We expect the company to continue to grow its user base at a significant rate.
