IBM Db2 Review

Good technical support and a stable platform for our Data Lake

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution was as a data lake, in an on-premises deployment.

We stopped using this solution almost a year ago.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the integration with other IBM products.

This solution has good storage capabilities.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better support for advanced analytics.

For how long have I used the solution?

I had been using this solution for nine years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is definitely a stable solution. I would rate the stability a nine out of ten.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I would say this solution is scalable, in terms of memory.

There are approximately one thousand users.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support for this solution is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using this solution I was using Oracle, although it was not for exactly the same purpose.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of this solution is straightforward.

There are between ten and fifteen staff that maintain this solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have changed to a new platform, so I am no longer using IBM DB2.

What other advice do I have?

If somebody is looking for stability then I recommend this platform, although it depends on whether they want a Data Lake or are looking for analytics.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner.
