WALLDORF — SAP today announced that for multiple consecutive years the readers of WatersTechnology have voted Sybase, an SAP company, “Best Complex Event Processing (CEP) Solution Provider” and “Best Enterprise Data Management (EDM) Systems Provider.”

SAP Sybase Event Stream Processor (SAP Sybase ESP) and SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP Sybase ASE) – components of the SAP real-time data platform – received the highest percentage of readers’ votes. SAP Sybase ESP won the CEP category for a third consecutive year and SAP Sybase ASE won the EDM category for a fifth consecutive year.

The Waters Rankings are an industry award based on a polling of qualified readers of Incisive Media’s WatersTechnology – a financial IT publication with more than 10,100 subscribers around the world. The 2012 winners were formally presented with their awards on July 18 at a reception held at the Empire Room in Manhattan’s Empire State Building.

“It is an honor to know that our commitment to delivering premier innovative financial technology to our capital markets clients is recognized by winning consecutive CEP and EDM awards,” said Eric Johnson, senior vice president and general manager, Database and Technology, SAP America. “This industry recognition demonstrates SAP’s ability to consistently meet the demanding, high-performance standards of capital markets firms. It also underscores SAP’s leadership in databases and providing data management solutions for financial services.”

Businesses are rapidly adopting the SAP real-time data platform to mine critical insights from their data management systems, enabling them to make timely decisions to stay ahead of their competition. SAP recently unveiled its vision for the SAP real-time data platform, which is based on the flagship SAP HANA platform and includes data management capabilities from SAP Sybase IQ server, SAP Sybase ESP, SAP Sybase ASE and SAP solutions for enterprise information management. With the evolutionary and non-disruptive integration of these offerings, customers can have unprecedented capabilities to transact, move, store, process and analyze data in real time while reducing costs with common design and landscape management capabilities.
