This paper looks at Sybase IQ 15 and concludes that "The column-based approach advocated by Sybase provides substantially better performance at lower cost than traditional approaches for analytical, reporting and data warehousing environments." Unlike standard row-based databases that were originally designed for online transaction processing, Sybase IQ has been engineered specifically for query processing and ad hoc analysis, performance that has been significantly extended in this release with the introduction of in-database analytics.
