This blog show how to connect to a Sybase IQ 15.2 data source from OBIEE 11g Using DataDirect ODBC Platinum Driver.

In a following blog I will explain how to configure Sybase IQ 15.2 data source from OBIEE 11g Using the Sybase IQ 15.2 ODBC Driver.


  • OBIEE Plus running on Solaris 10 Sun Sparc 64 architecture.
  • OBIEE Database repository on MS SQL 2005 running on Windows 2003
  • Sybase IQ 15.2 ESD#3 running on Solaris 10 over Sun Sparc 64 architecture.
  • DataDirect ODBC Platinum

Solution with DataDirect ODBC Drivers

Mr. Sumit Sarkar, from DataDirect, helped me to solve the problem as follow:

  1. copy the following files to the ORACLE_INSTANCE/Oracle_BI1/bifoundation/odbc/lib folder:
  1. Modify the odbc.ini file to user the driver

No modification the file is required.

Please note that as the time of this posting, the DataDirect ODBC Platinum is not part of the ODBC drivers provided with OBIEE 11g and a license for it use is required.
