SAP Sybase ASE customers are looking for a seamless way to migrate production applications to a modern, cloud-first, scalable data platform.

Various technical and business drivers are influencing the decision to migrate

  • Processing bottlenecks
    Increasing data sizes and processing workloads can cause SAP Sybase ASE applications to slow or stop. For mission critical applications, these issues can cause significant damage to the business.
  • High cost and complexity to scale
    SAP Sybase ASE’s dated architecture makes it challenging for financial services organizations to easily and cost effectively accommodate the current volatility of today’s financial markets and workloads. Since Sybase ASE scales only vertically but not horizontally, organizations must procure larger hardware with more CPU and memory to scale, which is more expensive and complex than scaling out horizontally on commodity hardware and in the cloud.
  • Reduced engineering and technical support
    SAP’s recent reductions to Sybase’s engineering and technical support staff are a concern for many organizations.
