Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

Db2 is not a solution that I recommend. We have a lot of experience and we are not satisfied with the product or the support that we received. Because of the way our environment works, serving branches, it becomes a challenge to satisfy the customers or users.

Toad Data Point

Toad Data Point is best when you don't want to remember the syntax. It facilitates you in forming queries, defining structure, and also data sources relationships. It can be used to automate queries and build scripts. In terms of aesthetics, it definitely needs a lot of improvement. The SQL Server Management Studio is very well organized, but Toad, on the other hand, is very cluttered.

Pros

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • You can size dashDB to your current needs and expand its capability later on as the needed.
  • I like the way dashDB allow for connecting to the cloud that my network engineer to set things up quickly.
  • IBM dashDB's ability to store and provide fast access to data both on-premise and in the cloud makes it a real winner for me.

Toad Data Point

  • Export data into excel.
  • Export data into excel using a pivot table functionality.
  • Navigation between windows is intuitive and easy to understand.
  • Good for SQL novices and experts alike.

Cons

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • We have been facing some challenges with Db2 when scaling up the operations in terms of availability. It becomes a single point of failure and it pollutes the whole system, leaving us challenges in serving the traffic. This is the reason that we are considering migrating to Oracle.
  • Scalability has been a problem area. We have traffic on the order of gigabytes per second and it impacts our queries and responses a lot. Considering the volume that we have, it manifests itself into a multitude of issues.
  • We have dealt with technical support on several occasions. Whenever we run into issues, the specialist team is involved and the resolution cycle is stretched. We have to rely on make-shift solutions and the issues keep recurring. Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either.

Toad Data Point

  • The workflow is a relatively new feature. Quest is adding additional functionality and the workflows are useful now.
  • Would be nice if the 'Automate' feature was a bit easier to use.
  • Would be nice if some of the SQL Editor features in the traditional interface worked better in the new workflow interface (although, these are being fixed with each release).
  • Would be nice if there were fewer releases.

Being a data enthusiast, Toad Data Point helps in providing many insights to the data structure, scheduling my day-to-day reporting, and importing datasets is a freebie, unlike in Microsoft SSMS. Also, there are regular updates that patch the security threat to data. The export customization is an added resource that is widely used for reporting.

I have been using Toad Data Point for almost a year and there is almost 100% uptime. With regards to customer support, ours is the banking industry that has been using Toad Data Point for the past few years so I must say the support is pretty commendable.

Alternatives Considered

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

IBM dashDB stacks up well against both on-premise (SQL Server and DB2), but it was a tough choice to go with over AzureDB. Ultimately, the deep discount by IBM led us to go with dashDB with the understanding that we could back out of the technology at a later date.

Although Toad and UltraEdit are both great products, from an SQL standpoint Toad is a much better editor and troubleshooter.

We have to rely on makeshift solutions and the issues keep recurring. Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either.
  • Scalability has been a problem area. We have traffic on the order of gigabytes and it impacts our queries and responses a lot. Considering the volume that we have, it manifests itself into a multitude of issues.
