CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS Review

Provides us better insight into our tables and our databases

What is our primary use case?

It's our DBA product for our database.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us better insight into our tables and our databases. It pulls all of the information from different directions back together, I think that's how it helps us.

What is most valuable?

Detector and Query. We use Detector for problem determination and Query, all day, to determine information about our tables and databases.

Also, it takes advantage of new features of DB2.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Nine out of 10.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Nine out of 10.

How is customer service and technical support?

10 out of 10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We did use a different solution, DBA Expert, and we switched because it was not compatible with the new release of DB2.

How was the initial setup?

It was pretty straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

It's a good product. I would give it a nine out of 10, and the reason is, in general, it's a technical product so I think that it's a little cumbersome.
