As the financial crisis gripping the U.S. and the global economy continues, the ability to make decisions based on analyses of vast amounts of rapidly changing data is more critical than ever, particularly for finance and treasury departments.

To this end, Dublin, Calif.-based Sybase Inc. is set to release in March a new version of its analytics server Sybase IQ 15 that will deliver faster, more accurate analyses and reporting, better enabling companies to anticipate market risks and opportunities.

IQ 15′s major advance is that it sets the data up in a grid-deployable way that allows information from anywhere in the company to all be loaded simultaneously.
