i just got an email from linkedin asking me to update
skills.
I had Sybase ASE, Sybase Replication Server and Sybase IQ as
skills. Linkedin suggests based on their stats there is 11%
decerese in linkedin users with sybase skills. So less jobs
for sybase guys and more money$$$ -good or bad.

I expect there will be more jobs and more money for people
with Sybase skills in the near future as SAP customers start
deploying on ASE.

As Bret says, SAP will be promoting Sybase databases, especially ASE,
heavily in 2012. So keep those skills on your resume.

I am also sure that Sybase will definitely grow:

Yday had a discussion with a SAP BI guy, he wants to learn
Sybase Replication/ASE as they are migrating to SAP HANA
and in that they will use Sybase Replication Server.

This is just start, many more such things will be coming
down the line and Sybase will be growing...with SAP
deployments.. :):)

For past 3 years my bills are mostly paid by oracle
contracts (exception 2 ASE 15 upgrade contracts), oracle was
easier to pick up after 12 years in sybase, but it just isnt
pretty like ASE/REP combo.

you guys make it sound so yummy with ase 15.7 and SAP but
googling SAP dosent give much hope at least for now:

- so SAP wont need DBA to install setup the ASE server :
there goes the DBA headcount
- so SAP wont need DBA with just ASE/Repserver skills rather
should have SAP app and system knowhow : damn just got into
oracle
- so SAP ASE install wont allow me to use isql - damn those
sqsh days
- so SAP ASE install wont let me architect them cool crazy
designs - having farms of ASE's interacting seemlessly with
middletier applications : oh well

waiting to see how the ASE-mower 15.7 trims the RDBMs field
of Oracle, Microsoft, IBM teradata and many other which have
