Db2 on-premise

Overall Satisfaction with Db2

We use DB2 as a generic database for a wide range of front end employee facing applications - HTML and non HTML based (proprietary user interface). We extensively use DB2 for our Lotus Notes application. This application is used for task tracking, logging, project management, change control requests, incident tracking and response tracking on those said incidents.

  • Scalable
  • Seamless integration
  • Advanced functionality
  • Security

  • Low licensing costs
  • Easy to maintain
  • Good customer support
  • Low operational costs
DB2 can be configured and can work with a variety of applications as opposed to how it was designed initially to only with with IBM mainframes. It's easy implementation process makes it a good buy for many organizations to scale their applications to be the best in terms of versatility, resilience and application performance
Any issues related to DB2's availability are usually resolved easily and fast. We also have a team of dedicated analysts and admins to support the database technically. Once in a while we do request support from IBM for some complex issues that the on premise team can't resolve and the response is usually pretty fast and support is amazing!
DB2 was more scalable and easily configurable than other products we evaluated and short listed in terms of functionality and pricing. IBM also had a good demo on premise and provided us a sandbox experience to test out and play with the product and DB2 at that time came out better than other similar products.

Would you buy Db2 again?


DB2 is well suited for most of IBM applications and is easily configurable. It's easy to setup and link applications to. Troubleshooting is easy as there are tools provided out of the box to diagnose and research day to day issues. DB2 has a simple design and somewhat lacks advanced functionality when compared to other mainstream databases.
