Overall Satisfaction with DB2

It's used at the department level, but queries can be run by the whole organization.

  • Front end application database
  • Mixed OLTP-OLAP database
  • Loan IQ Main database (where Loan IQ is the worlds leading software solution for loan servicing)

  • Sturdy and fault tolerant
  • Fast
  • High parametrization
  • Client tools need to be improved.
  • Documentation needs to be improved
  • Best performance with high durability.
Sometimes scalability is searched when not needed.
There are some issues with intra-parallelism, as there also are with Oracle and SQL Server.
This is the strongest database engine out there; I never saw it fail a recovery. It does have some bugs however.
When using on a high OLTP database server with half a second response time and in a data warehouse environment, it never depends on database engine but on the DBAs.
