PlayPhone EMEA Selects Sybase Advanced Analytics for a Deeper Understanding of Customers

MAIDENHEAD, England, February 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), an industry leader in delivering enterprise and mobile software, today announced that PlayPhone EMEA, the global leader in branded mobile entertainment, has selected Sybase(r) IQ to provide more comprehensive, easily accessible, accurate and current information about its customers and marketing campaigns.

"When you're running a business like ours, success is all about generating volume," explains Simon Rose, PlayPhone director of infrastructure for the European, Middle East and Africa region (EMEA). "That requires the rapid planning and execution of simultaneous, large-scale marketing campaigns. With Sybase IQ, we now have the business intelligence to make marketing decisions based on accurate and current data of customer behaviour, and purchasing histories to ensure we are running more efficient and cost-effective campaigns. Better campaigns are helping us achieve our goal to become the largest subscription-based mobile content provider."

PlayPhone EMEA also uses Sybase Adaptive Server(r) Enterprise (ASE) to ensure high performance, reliability, security and low administrative support requirements with the implementation of a transactional system geared to very high performance for processing customer orders.

"Using Sybase IQ, PlayPhone can now meet the instant customer demands and target customers more effectively and plan, execute, monitor and fine-tune marketing campaigns to achieve the best return on its marketing spend," said Andrew de Rozairo, Business Development, Strategic Partners EMEA, Sybase. "PlayPhone can do all this while ensuring lightning fast performance of its critical transactional processing system with ASE."

"Sybase IQ has enabled us to gain a single view of our data for reporting and data mining purposes," says Rose. "It's been extremely stable and reliable. Having the ability to use the developer edition of Sybase IQ has allowed us to try different things before actually implementing them. We now have more than gut instinct to guide us in the current business environment."

Sybase Professional Services created a proof-of-concept with Sybase IQ running on Red Hat Linux on a commodity server and employing the SAS Business Intelligence Server as its front end. Based on this proof-of-concept success, PlayPhone rolled out the Sybase IQ-powered business intelligence system across its EMEA enterprise. Currently, all of the division's transactional and archival data resides in Sybase IQ.
