Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

We use SQL Anywhere with our GeoGraphix software for oil and gas exploration. It has been a workhorse RDMS for us for almost 25 years. It's fully ANSI SQL compliant, performs well, and handles relatively large data volumes (10,000,000 records per table). It also scales easily from a single consultant's desktop to an oil and gas major or NOC.
  • Good performance with relatively large data sets - its cost-based query optimizer is particularly robust
  • ANSI SQL compliant
  • Supports T-SQL
  • Scales well between the desktop (single user) and client/server installations supporting 50-1000 users
  • Small user base makes finding information difficult.
  • Third-party vendors don't support native connections to SQL Anywhere (TIBCO, ESRI). Although direct ODBC connections can be used successfully.
Workhorse RDMS that performs well for workgroup installations (50-100 users). Works equally well in standalone and client/server scenarios.

SAP SQL Anywhere is used across our organization. It is the database for our Point of Sale system. We have a rather small amount of data coming from 70 stores. SQL Anywhere helps us organize POS data, analyze and share. We find it fast and usually problem-free. It is also easy to get data through ODBC.
  • It is fast
  • User friendly interface
  • Affordable cost
  • User interface is a little bit outdated
  • May have some issues in connecting to different versions
  • When syntax check enabled, the editor could be slow
If you have a rather small amount of data, SAP SQL Anywhere is a good choice. It is fast and easy to use and it has a good user interface.

We use SAP SQL Anywhere as the database for our core line-of-business application. We have both stand-alone and multi-user (enterprise) installations of this application. It is the repository of all our major transactional data, and as such is also the source for our data warehouse, which is a separate platform and environment.
  • SQL compliant
  • ODBC drivers available
  • Simple implementation
  • 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
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.

We utilize this software to be able to host our own software as a database service so that our customers can use it.
  • The ability to host network database services and the ability to manage them.
  • Some features seem hard to use and do not have a clear reason what it is used for.
It is very good for managing SQL databases as well as hosting them for network-level access. I know there are many other types of services that it can be used to host but for the personal and network services, this software is efficient.

Our company uses the software to host our own database program where multiple users in an organization can connect to the database. This is very useful as our own database is commonly used by multiple individuals to make changes.

SQL is a global platform for any DB machine, and my ability to use SQL Anywhere across all DB platforms gives me the edge to get real time data, fast and deliverable, and easy to use when you understand your requirement as a function analyst to leverage such skills across all databases. I have used SQL Anywhere across MS, Oracle, Postgres and MySQL platforms, and I will say its a great skill to have and use.
I recently consulted for a company that already used MS DB and were thinking of switching its DB to SQL Anywhere. One of the challenges was the migration of stored procedures. These procedures will have to be evaluated and validated and probably re-written to suit current needs that they serve.
  • It queries large set of data and has a speedy run time.
  • With the rate at which data is going with Internet of All things, SQL Anywhere cuts across database applications outside of traditional data centers in which department data's are stored.
  • The amazing thing about SQL Anywhere is the relational standard it maintains as a structured language that works across any DB. Yes, you might need to adopt some changes within the environment DB you are working; however, its important to know SQL itself to help archive data goals.
  • I think it should be more user friendly for non-technical users.
  • More functional functionalities should be added to the object explore when working with a table to transform data/manipulate data.
It is well suited if an organization does not currently have a DB they are running. They can procure and run with SQL Anywhere. It is not suited if an organization currently runs a licensed DB such as MS, Oracle etc. except if they want to sync the DB's to have a more robust data center.

This database is used organization-wide as the back end to an ARM solution we use as well as a data warehouse for BI and reporting.
  • Easy to use
  • Interfaces well with third-party tools
  • No complaints
This is a great database for small to mid-sized organizations looking for a powerful SQL database not looking to break the bank. Easy to use toolset and transact SQL.

We've had no real issues when upgrading for release to release, we've done a few and all have gone as smooth as one could ask.
