SAP® Sybase® Replication Server® to Power Real-Time Transactional Replication for SAP HANA® and Changed Data Capture for SAP® Data Services

WALLDORF, GermanySAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced the newest version of SAP® Sybase® Replication Server®, a core component of the SAP® Real-Time Data Platform that is planned to provide high-performance, secure and reliable delivery of data across the enterprise. From gathering real-time business intelligence (BI) to recovering from disaster, SAP Sybase Replication Server satisfies a host of mission-critical needs, enabling organizations to make decisions based on today’s information and keep their distributed enterprise environments reliable and stable.

The latest version of SAP Sybase Replication Server is planned to replicate data in real time from multiple sources into multiple instances of SAP HANA® — without disrupting or slowing the production applications at the source — while transactional consistency is preserved. It also aims to provide real-time log-based changed data capture (CDC) for SAP® Data Services software, allowing customers to gain business insights in real time.

“Meeting the demands of the real-time enterprise requires a sophisticated data management strategy,” said Shawn Rogers, vice president of Research at Enterprise Management Associates. “SAP Sybase Replication Server plays a critical role in the challenge to execute real-time workloads across diverse data landscapes. SAP has highly integrated the solution into its real-time data platform orchestrating data for optimal real-time effectiveness.”

With data transaction volumes rapidly expanding and data availability requirements continuing to grow, enterprises need real-time data to make business decisions utilizing new sources and destinations for information that include in-memory databases, data warehouses, cloud services and more. SAP Sybase Replication Server aims to empower transactional replication, helping ensure that only consistent, accurate and reliable data is distributed to and synchronized between multiple locations. SAP Sybase Replication Server is a must-have mission-critical systems solution that is intended to supply business continuity, data migration and loading BI for organizations using the powerful SAP HANA database.

“SAP Sybase Replication Server is a critical component in delivering on our vision for a comprehensive real-time data platform,” said Irfan Khan, chief technology officer and senior vice president, Database & Technology, SAP AG. “With SAP Sybase Replication Server, we plan to provide the capabilities to facilitate real-time data movement into SAP HANA as well as third-party databases to help ensure high availability and disaster recovery for SAP Business Suite on SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise. These features are intended to allow businesses to leverage existing applications across multiple locations and geographies and make decisions based on today’s information while feeling secure in the stability and reliability of their distributed enterprise environment.”
