Overall Satisfaction with SQL Anywhere

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.
There are several DB's services out there, it all depends on organization and process needs.
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.
