Sybase, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, announced that it has acquired  Hamburg, Germany-based Solonde AG, a privately held provider of powerful next-generation solutions for data integration and interface management needs, in an all cash transaction. The transaction closed on June 12, 2006.

Solonde's extract, transform and load (ETL) capabilities advance Sybase's Unwired Enterprise strategy by providing a more complete range of data integration solutions to its global customers.  This enables enterprises to make better business intelligence decisions based on a consolidated view of data from multiple heterogeneous sources. Solonde's ETL capabilities combine industry-leading ease-of-use with unmatched scalability through a unique GRID architecture for one common data transformation

Solonde's ETL functionality complements Sybase's highly scalable IQ analytics server and its mission-critical data management system, Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE). With its unsurpassed query performance and storage efficiency for structured and unstructured data, Sybase IQ enables companies to dramatically save time, storage capacity and overall costs. Additionally, Sybase ASE meets the increasing demands of large databases and high transaction volumes, providing a cost-effective database management system to tame the data explosion.
"This is exciting news for us," said Dan Crawford, CEO of CompuDyne - Public Safety & Justice, a Solonde customer. "Sybase's acquisition of Solonde will provide us with a greater level of global support and access to a broader breadth of complementary products." 
Acquiring Solonde strengthens Sybase's data integration capability, which already includes replication, data federation (enterprise information integration/EII), real-time data propagation and search. Customers can take advantage of the ETL functionality to easily populate data warehouses with historical and operational data from multiple heterogeneous sources. Solonde's innovative ETL solution is extraordinarily easy to install and use thereby reducing the time, money and staff required for business
intelligence projects.  Solonde's state-of-the-art design is a highly scalable GRID architecture that supports all major databases, flat files, XML, Web services and SAP R/3.  Solonde also provides Sybase with certified SAP integration technology.
