WALLDORF — SAP AG today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems,”i based on the evaluation of the SAP HANA platform, SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP Sybase ASE) and the SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere suite. SAP is recognized as a market leader for both its “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.”

According to the Gartner report, “[t]he Leaders quadrant generally contains the vendors that demonstrate the greatest degree of support for a broad range of operational applications based on a broad range of data types and large numbers of concurrent users. These vendors demonstrate consistent customer satisfaction and strong customer support. These vendors also have the greatest longevity in the market and have built a wide partner ecosystem for their products. Hence, the Leaders generally have the lowest risk for their customers in the areas of performance, scalability, reliability and support. As the market demands change, so the Leaders demonstrate strong vision in support of not only the needs of the current market but also of new and emerging trends. Finally, the messaging, product R&D and delivery are in line with the market today and with new trends in both DBMS software technology and hardware technology.”

“Customers are increasingly turning to SAP for scalable, reliable and resilient operational data management solutions to achieve their critical goals today while advancing capabilities well into the future,” said Dan Lahl, vice president, Product Marketing, SAP. “SAP is committed to providing world-class intelligent operational database solutions that deliver outstanding performance, scalability and reliability for the long term. We believe this recognition from Gartner further affirms our continued momentum, direction and leadership in this space.”

SAP HANA and SAP Sybase ASE are at the core of the company’s data management vision and momentum. SAP HANA was introduced to the market two years ago and has since gained more than 2,200 enterprise customers and more than 1,000 startups and independent software vendors (ISVs). More than 1,000 new customers have chosen SAP Sybase ASE in the past 18 months. And when paired with SAP Business Suite software, SAP Sybase ASE has achieved substantial momentum with rapid customer adoption in that time. SAP has also supplied a combined solution of SAP HANA and SAP Sybase ASE to many customers on the Global 1000 list, helping large organizations move to SAP Business Suite and custom applications, scale to new transaction levels and achieve critical, in-the-moment decision-making.
