IBM Db2 enables developers, DBAs, and data architects to run low-latency transactions and real-time analytics equipped for the most demanding workloads. From global banking to sustainable energy, Db2 is the tested, resilient, and hybrid database providing the availability, security, and scalability for the systems that run the world.
Mission critical environments require continuous availability. Deploy availability enabling users to run workloads without interruption.
Db2 grows with the user. Scale Db2 up and out as workloads evolve and as performance needs change.
Db2 protects data with in-motion and at-rest encryption, auditing, data masking, row/column access controls, and role-based access.
Db2 can be run in the cloud, on-premises, or in hybrid environments.

- I have supported LARGE projects with Db2 that would have not been able to meet their SLAs (or even keep running) with other RDBMS.
- It has been in use for transactional (OLTP) systems for many years without requiring too much administration effort.
- It's the best for a huge amount of data, it has increased our response time and reduced latency which increases the value of the product.
- We are able to store a huge amount of data without worrying about the storage
- We are able to set up databases in different regions
- Overall it has increased the revenue.
- Improved user experience by reducing the latency.
- Performance optimized[.]
- High Availability, no need to go and check uptime.
- Cost effective, now no need to purchase high configuration server all time.
- No need to manage external server.
- Very cheap and easy to install.
- Storage of large files in the database in an easy way.
- Back-ups and data recovery measures in place.
- Improve employee training
- Increase efficiency
- Competitive advantage
- Resolve issue of on-time database availability
- We no need to worry about database size and storage.
- Standard and Enterprise plans based on users requirements.
- It is too early to be able to say that something concrete about the contribution to the objectives of the area
- We have been using it for more than a year now and we have achieved higher ROI with it.
- ROI was high, as it was easy to train new developers.
- More cost effective than any other DB solution providers
- Increased efficiency & decreased data processing time
- Increased productivity
- Cost effective
- Reliable and secure RDBMS
- Fast deployment within IBM ecosystem which saves a lot of time
- Report generation was made easier.
- We were able to pull useful insights.
- 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 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.
- High reliability and increased uptimes
- Supported platform migrations are dead simple.
- Positive : We have relied on this Db for more than 5 years (I have been relying for 3 years) and we were extremely comfortable to say that we surely got a high ROI.
- Positive : Maintenance teams have mentioned many times that IBM is more cost-effective than Oracle when it comes to maintaining the DB.
- ROI on DB2 for i is hard to calculate since it's integrated into IBM i but having the ability to micro-partition the machine and spin up additional LPARs without licensing issues (within the entitled capacity, of course) brings flexibility.
- A lot of great tools are bundled with IBM i, and most of them are DB2 related. DBEs have most of the tools they need to monitor and tune the database right from the start.
- Not as much business as in Pakistan.
- It has yet to get developed in the market.
- Rather new for many customers.
- Hard to calculate, given the bundled pricing. Virtualization from the mainframe IFLs saves us considerably.
- Management tools like Data Server Manager are great and FREE. Other vendors charge big bucks for those.
- Positive, as it provides simple and stable data access to multiple other systems.
- Makes my executive team happy because we can get the data out of the DB
- Has allowed us to pursue targeted marketing the because the data is there.
- We do not have downtime related to database issues
- high quality cpu consumption
- delicate management of recovery through the log
- necessity of constant maintenance through utilities
