Db2 on cloud

Overall Satisfaction with DB2

I am using it to teach university students about database fundamentals and how they are deployed in a cloud architecture setting. Relational concepts of a database are taught and applied using the Db2 Cloud lite account. An actual demo of how to import data and run SQL scripts is part of the learning activities.
  • Using the SQL SELECT Statements
  • CRUD operations
  • Running user-defined functions and stored procedures
  • Connection to Visualization Tools (PowerBI, Tableau)
  • Connection to Reporting Tools (JasperSoft)
  • Connection to PHP
  • Improve employee training
  • Increase efficiency
  • Competitive advantage
Creating a Db2 resource service is easy. In terms of usage, you may choose which account service is best suited for your organization.

Did implementation of Db2 go as expected?

Would you buy Db2 again?

Yes

[IBM Db2 on Cloud is well suited for its] UI simplicity where you can enter SQL scripts, stored procedures, and user-defined functions in one place. There is no need for a special IDE. SQL scripts can be written in a way they are intended to increase script meaning. Though, you can not administer administration rights as long as you are in a lite account. You cannot fully explain data concurrency and locking because of the limited administration feature in a database instance.
