Sybase, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, announced availability of Sybase Real-Time Data Services, a solution to give decision-makers immediate insight into changing business events by enabling heterogeneous databases to publish/subscribe information to/from messaging architectures, eliminating delays and systems performance degradation caused by batch or polling processes.

Sybase Real-Time Data Services, which requires no custom coding and has low operations impact, is a complete solution for leading databases - including Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE), IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle - to proactively deliver information to the enterprise the moment business critical data changes.

"Organizations are seeking ways to make real-time event data available, but to date the solutions have been costly, intrusive and custom coded," said Carl Olofson, IDC research director, Application Development and Deployment. "Solutions that make the database a proactive participant in the information chain and can handle the complexities of heterogeneous data centers will be very attractive. Moreover, solutions that can simplify the interfaces between proactive databases and messaging systems should eliminate the need to write intrusive polling applications for event notifications."

With Sybase Real-Time Data Services, customers can:

  •  Enable event-driven information from multiple systems to be delivered directly to the message bus for a consolidated real-time view of key operational data from multiple data sources
  •  Eliminate costly-to-maintain, intrusive polling applications for generating real-time alerts and notifications
  •  Easily enable auditing to meet security and/or regulatory requirements with change data capture capability

Sybase Real-Time Data Services' support for heterogeneous databases and messaging infrastructures enables companies to:

  • Proactively publish data to a messaging infrastructure at a lower cost and with less complexity - no changes to existing applications or custom coding are required 
  • Preserve operational performance - capture events from heterogeneous database systems with zero impact on the source database 
  • Improve information relevancy - enrich events with analytical or historical information before arriving to the decision-maker

The company also announced the next version of Sybase ASE, 12.5.2, which delivers higher performance, reliability and capacity with fewer resources. This new version has integrated database support for high-performance Real-Time Data Services, as well as operational and security enhancements, including:

  • Smart SQL cache for better application performance
  • Improved security through IPv6, Kerberos, pluggable authentication module (PAM) and active directory support 
  • Support for improved memory management support for increased Linux performance and scalability
  • Enhanced Web services and XML support for faster application development
  • Support for database backup compression and password protected backup.
