WALLDORF, Germany, April 16, 2013

WALLDORF, Germany, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP 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."
