The deal means that Solonde’s extract, transform and load (ETL) capabilities can enhance Sybase’s Unwired Enterprise strategy by providing a more complete range of data integration solutions to its global customers. Sybase says that this enables enterprises to make better business intelligence decisions based on a consolidated view of data from multiple heterogeneous sources.
Solonde’s ETL capabilities are based on what the company claims is a unique Grid architecture for one common data transformation platform. The architecture supports all major databases, flat files, XML, web services and SAP R/3. Solonde also provides Sybase with certified SAP integration technology.
“Solonde enables Sybase to build upon a newly architected ETL platform,” comments Raj Nathan, senior vice-president and general manager, information technology solutions group, Sybase. “This acquisition complements our existing technology, expands our data integration portfolio and supports our Unwired Enterprise strategy.”
Solonde’s ETL functionality will be used to complement Sybase’s scalable IQ analytics server and its mission-critical data management system, Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE). The company says that the system’s query performance and storage efficiency for structured and unstructured data enables companies to dramatically save time, storage capacity and overall costs.
