We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We don't see what the specific price of the DB2 license is because we pay for the backup license as a package."
"I think that everyone knows that with IBM the standard price is higher than the others."
"Db2 is less expensive than Oracle."
"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."
"There is a license for this solution and we pay every three years."
"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."
"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."
