SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise or SAP ASE is a relational database management system from SAP. It was known as Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise or Sybase ASE until SAP Acquired Sybase. Generally, when people talk about Sybase database, they mean Sybase Adaptive Server, not Sybase SQL Anywhere.
We support Sybase Adaptive Server (ASE) directly in our products! You don't need separate drivers and can immediately connect to your database.
Initially, the product was called Sybase SQL Server. Microsoft ported Sybase SQL Server to IBM OS/2 in 1988 and both Sybase and Microsoft sold and supported the product until the co-development licensing agreement ended in 1993. Codebases diverged, so Microsoft released Microsoft SQL Server, and Sybase continued working on Sybase SQL Server. In 1996 Sybase was forced to rename its product to Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise in order to avoid confusion with Microsoft SQL Server.
Sybase ASE is a very capable database especially popular in financial institutions. SAP hopes to take customers wanting to run its SAP ERP from Oracle to SAP ASE, but it’s not easy (and often too risky and expensive) to migrate enterprise databases with a lot of business processes.
All our products support Sybase Adaptive Server database natively. No drivers are needed, you will be able to work with Sybase Adaptive Server as soon as you run our applications.Sybase Adaptive Server is also known as Sybase, Sybase ASE.
It may make sense to migrate your data away from Sybase Adaptive Server. You may want to do it permanently or just need to share your tables with a collague in a different format.
We will copy all your tables with their data and apply indexing and relationships exactly as they are in your current Sybase Adaptive Server database. In a nutshell, you get exactly the same database in another database engine. Each time you run the migration, we will copy all the tables again. Of course, we have a built-in scheduler, so you can run this overnight and have a fresh database copy in the morning.
Have a need to import data from various sources into your Sybase Adaptive Server database? Luckily we support many popular database formats to make this easy for you. Instead of messing with exporting from source, then working your way to somehow import data into Sybase Adaptive Server, use our tool to copy all desired tables directly - quickly and easily.
If you have already created your target database (by yourself or using our Full Convert product), you can synchronize data in your target database with your original Sybase Adaptive Server database. We never pollute your databases with additional tables or triggers for replications. We never even write to your source database.
Replication allows you to update your target database very often, as we always write just a minimum of changes needed to bring databases in sync. For example, if you added three records to a single table in your Sybase Adaptive Server database, our replication product will write those three records to target database and nothing else. If you deleted some records, changed some others and inserted some, again – our product will pick that up and replay those changes in the target databases without touching existing data that should stay there. Our products are highly optimized for real-world workloads, so data that's inserted into different areas of table are combined and written using high-speed algorithms, as available in a specific target database.
You can run database replication often, as your target database is never empty while replication runs. You will simply see that your changes are applied on each run.
When you want a stellar SQL writing experience, our Query allows you to easily and quickly write your queries. It will autocomplete as you type and allow you to instantly view your data.
Database diagrams only get you so far. You may want to keep HTML mini-website for your database documentation so all your developers can be in the loop and quickly locate needed information. You may need it for a client report, or to distribute your database schema as a CHM file to people who need it.
Our products even allow you to upload the documentation to your FTP server, so your website copy is always current.
