If they really want to use that technology, they would be much better of
taking Microsoft SQL Server instead. Microsoft took Sybase code back in
90's and made a good product out of it. Sybase is a dead end, it will
probably be gone as soon as all the old applications using it become
obsolete. I haven't heard of a new project using Sybase in years.

to find a developer competent with Sybase. Maybe those advocating Sybase
are really looking for job security here? ;)
