We were evaluating database platforms to replace a seven database instance of Sybase which was being used by our application. Our goal was to collapse the data and consolidate it into a single instance. IBM DB2 Big SQL was one of the platforms we did an extensive evaluation of. We were excited about this platform because it gave us the ability to have a single database connection to connect to multiple disparate data stores. Our goal was to simplify our environment, our application and improve our performance. This was just being evaluated by our department and was not in use elsewhere at the time we did the evaluation.
  • SQL compatibility.
  • High performance.
  • Cloud readiness.
  • Ease of implementation.
My recommendation obviously would depend on the application. But I think given the right requirements, IBM DB2 Big SQL is definitely a contender for a database platform. Especially when disparate data and multiple data stores are involved. I like the fact I can use the product to federate my data and make it look like it's all in one place. The engine is high performance and if you desire to use Hadoop, this could be your platform.
IBM did a good job of supporting us during our evaluation and proof of concept. They were able to provide all necessary guidance, answer questions, help us architect it, etc. We were pleased with the support provided by the vendor. I will caveat and say this support was all before the sale, however, we have a ton of IBM products and they provide the same high level of support for all of them. I didn't see this being any different. I give IBM support two thumbs up!

IBM DB2 Big SQL is being used as a database to record fact table transactions in our downstream operations. It is being used by the IT department as a core database but focusing on legacy application support. It solves the problem of storing and retrieving mission critical data that is primarily relational.
  • data storage
  • data manipulation
  • data definitions
  • data reliability
  • complexity of database
  • interface and innovation
IBM Db2 is a legacy database and is primarily great for supporting certain legacy applications. It's simply not as competitive as many solutions on the market now.
IBM is a well known company and supports the data and infrastructure they put out relatively well. I am a fan of their support as it is relatively extensive.
