We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very stable, in both hardware and database."
"The self-management and optimization features are probably the best on the market"
"We had a crash of the backup system and the IBM DB2 was always up and consistent. It's robust, and for us, it was always up and running."
"When you submit a ticket the response time is quick."
"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."
"Very good for performance and scalability."
"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."
"We are dealing with millions of transactions a month and the performance is very good."
"It is a stable program."
"The functionality of the solution is excellent."
"It's a pre-configured appliance that requires very little in terms of setting-up."
"The performance is great, we are able to query our data in one operation."
"I like this solution's ease of design and the fact that its performance is quite good. It is stable as well."
"The flexibility in design is very good."
"Teradata has good performance, the response times are very fast. Overall the solution is easy to use. When we do the transformation, we have all of our staging and aggregation data available."
"End-to-end encryption specifically is something the solution needs to have in the next release."
"The ease of use, or ease of management, could be improved."
"The licensing fees can be reduced."
"The price should be lower."
"In terms of improvements, IBM Db2 can improve its interface and its functionality. Also, the embedded functions should be much richer than the current ones - the functions which are embedded in the engine itself."
"There could be better integration with some cloud solutions."
"The GUI interface is not particularly friendly for those who do not have experience with the product."
"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."
"An additional feature I would you like to see included in the next release, is that it needs to be more cloud-friendly."
"I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved."
"It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data."
"I would like to see more integration with many different types of data."
"The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale."
"Teradata should focus on functionality for building predictive models because, in that regard, it can definitely improve."
"The solution is stable. However, there are times when we are using large amounts of data and we can see some latency issues."
"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."
"The solution requires a license."
"The price of Teradata is on the higher side, and I think that it where they lose out on some of their business."
"The price of the solution could be reduced, it is expensive."
Teradata's portfolio of big data analytic solutions, integrated marketing applications, and services help organizations gain a sustainable competitive advantage with data.
