Overall Satisfaction with IBM Db2 Big SQL

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
  • better data visibility
  • solid reliability for mission critical data
IBM DB2 is a solid service but hasn't seen much innovation over the past decade. It gets the job done and supports our IT operations across digital so it is fair.
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.
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.
