The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

SAP SQL Anywhere

SAP SQL Anywhere is better than not using a database, let's be clear there! However, I wouldn't pick it as my first or even second or third choice. I'd recommend looking at other options. Largely, it appears less powerful both in terms of its robustness and general performance and in its implementation of SQL. The standard Sybase utilities provided are lacking in basic features, and the interactive SQL utility is quite horrendous. However, the great thing is it is an ODBC-compliant SQL-compliant relational database.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • Seems a lesser implementation of SQL than T-SQL / SQL Server
  • Desktop version (vs. enterprise version) seems underpowered, like Access vs MS SQL rather than a desktop edition of an enterprise database
  • Fewer experienced resources available with Sybase skills

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.

Ultimately, a vendor chose SQL Anywhere as their database of choice for their application. I would go with Microsoft SQL Server instead, personally. Largely this is because the tools and support are far better. However, SQL Anywhere is an ODBC-compliant database and as such it is infinitely superior to the situation where app developers roll their own crummy proprietary data store.

Return on Investment

  • This has sped up the process of analysis.
  • We can now automate process which were performed manually.
  • Analysis can be performed more frequently.

  • Skilled/experienced resources are less prominent than Microsoft SQL Server or even Oracle, or MySQL, so finding solutions and assistance, if needed, takes more time than it would with other platforms
  • You will need to find a good SQL query tool by yourself because the Sybase Central / Interactive SQL utilities are lacking in many basic features, and just generally have a bad user interface
