Db2 on-premise

Overall Satisfaction with DB2

The project I am currently involved in implies retrieving data from multiple source systems from many companies in order to integrate them into a Corporate Data Warehouse. Some of the companies use systems that have their data stored on DB2, so we need to generate ETL processes against DB2 to obtain the data.
  • Reliable and secure.
  • Excellent performance.
  • Cross platform.
  • Lack of modern client tool to connect and query database.
  • Reliability.
  • Performance.
  • It has been in use for transactional (OLTP) systems for many years without requiring too much administration effort.
I did not choose DB2 over any other database engine, the corporation we are currently working for uses all of them for different companies/systems/departments and we need to consolidate data from all of them into a single data warehouse. DB2 is one of the many different data sources we have to work with, and we are able to interact with it without any complication or extra effort.

Do you think Db2 delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Did Db2 live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Db2 go as expected?


Would you buy Db2 again?


DB2 has decades of history as a reliable and robust relational database. It may lack some of the latest features available on Oracle or SQL Server, but it is still a great tool to store huge amounts of relational data and be able to access it in a simple and efficient way.
