Data is the heart of business operations in the age of modern digitization, boosting insights, innovation, and competitive advantage for companies of all sizes and industry sectors. As companies deal with ever-growing volumes of data, the need for dynamic, scalable, and efficient data management solutions that consolidate information from multiple data sources becomes paramount. 

Enter SAP IQ—a high-performance, decision-support server designed to revolutionize business intelligence, data warehousing, and analytics capabilities.

Read on to learn more about SAP IQ and how our senior-level SAP consultants can help your organization tackle all things related to your SAP environment.

What is SAP IQ?

SAP IQ is an effective and cost-efficient relational database management system (RDBMS) from the SAP Business Technology Platform that supports Big Data analytics and extreme data compression.

This high-performance decision-support server was created for mission-critical analytics, business intelligence, and data warehousing. Its Component Integration Services enable direct access to relational and non-relational databases on mainframe, UNIX, or Windows servers.

SAP IQ is an ACID-compliant database that ensures data integrity whether your database (or dbspace) is established on raw devices or files within a larger file system. Multiplex configurations in SAP IQ support GPFS and NFS, while simple configurations support any file system. Both simple and multiplex setups are compatible with raw devices in the SAP IQ landscape.
