Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"We are dealing with millions of transactions a month and the performance is very good.""The solution is a very stable relational database and has integration with legacy systems. It is a great product.""IBM Db2 was much cheaper as a package than using other products. This is because IBM supplied a package with its product. It's an application. So it was much more efficient and a stronger competitor in that regard.""The most valuable feature is PowerPC support.""Very good for performance and scalability.""I like that its true active-active. For example, if there are two instances within a cluster, we can take one of them down and there's no failover or switch over. There's no primary and secondary, it's true active-active. We can take one side down and we can upgrade that with new maintenance or a new version, obviously testing coexistence beforehand, without impacting the business.""The solution is easy to install and simple to maintain. The most valuable aspect of the solution is its general user-friendliness for users of all kinds.""IBM Db2 Database has good performance."

Cons
"The capabilities of this solution could improve.""The licensing fees can be reduced.""The technical support team is not very good when compared to the efficiency of Oracle's support.""It would be helpful to have a hybrid data storage facility that includes NoSQL technologies.""The solution could improve by providing more integration.""GUI needs improvement.""It would be ideal if the solution offered backup functionality. Many similar tools already do, which means Db2 is somewhat behind the curve in terms of what a customer might expect from it.""They should simplify the management of Db2 as a relational database system. There should be the simplification of management. This is probably one of the most important asks for being successful in the future."

"This solution is a bit complicated when collecting from containers - that feature should be a bit better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We don't see what the specific price of the DB2 license is because we pay for the backup license as a package.""We did not buy it. It came with our hardware without any complimentary maintenance. If I compare Db2 Database with Oracle Database, its price is lower than Oracle Database.""I think that everyone knows that with IBM the standard price is higher than the others.""It is expensive.""We normally handle large size businesses and as far as I am aware, the license is negotiable based on the number of users and the quantitative data.""There is a license for this solution and we pay every three years.""Db2 is less expensive than Oracle.""Among Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and Db2, Microsoft SQL Server is the cheapest one, and Oracle is the most expensive one. Db2 is in the middle. As compared to SQL Server, its price could go down. It will be good for customers."
