Caixa Economica Federal of Brazil is installing a data warehouse from Sybase Inc. to manage financial information gathered from more than 2,500 branches.

Caixa is using Sybase's Replication Agent and DirectConnect integration technology, and its Adaptive Server IQ. The latter will allow the warehouse to grow to the terabyte level without requiring a lot of hardware expense.

"Sybase's high-performance data warehousing solutions and ability to link heterogeneous and geographically dispersed data sources were key factors in our decision," said Aires Coimbra, manager in Caixa Economica Federal's technology area.
