Sybase CEO champions open source

John Chen sits down in a Face to Face interview with ZDNet editor-in-chief Dan Farber to talk about Sybase's high-end database, offered for free in a limited version to mainly small and midsize businesses. The CEO believes that as customer needs grow, they'll upgrade, paying Sybase for value-added tools that handle larger data sets, unstructured data, search, EII, federated databases and other functions.
