We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I have worked with DB2's great features in the last five years. The IDAA feature transformed the vision of warehousing, business analytics, and big data at my bank. Besides the mainframe, I saw that this solution was evolutionary. It gives real-time information."
"This solution has a well-known procedure for troubleshooting and tuning the performance, providing for smooth operation."
"This solution provides us with real-time replication and it does not affect the performance of other operations, which is very important to us."
"When we are replicating data between similar databases then it is straightforward."
"The initial setup is straightforward. It doesn't take too much time or effort to implement the solution."
"This is a powerful solution provided by one of the most respected companies in the computer industry."
"The most valuable feature is data replication capability."
"The CDC feature is interesting."
"They've recently improved the ease of implementation."
"DB2 is a hard tool to grasp. It's hard for users to learn how to use it. It's not easy to see how it works."
"Additional performance metrics should be added and visible in a dashboard, displayed in a detailed manner."
"I find the user interface to be difficult for non-technical people."
"The process of transforming the data between two different databases is inefficient and needs to be improved."
"The solution, in general, should be easier to use, with less need to perform workarounds within the system."
"Technical support for Oracle products needs to be more efficient (at least locally in Egypt)."
"It should be easier to integrate this solution with non-Oracle databases, including cloud-based solutions hosted on Azure."
"We struggle with memory. It's limited. However, it may be because of our unique business case and how we use it that it's limiting for us."
"The solution is quite costly, and if they could reduce their pricing, it would be more economical to implement."
"The licensing model should be improved to be more cost-effective for the end users."
"We do like the price of this solution."
"Pricing is based on anual licensing with additional costs for support packages."
"The price of this solution is good."
"We have an enterprise license for it. It might be for three years or so. I'm not aware of any additional costs to the standard licensing fee."
