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

Pros
Very good for performance and scalability.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.When you submit a ticket the response time is quick.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.The self-management and optimization features are probably the best on the marketThe solution is very stable, in both hardware and database.The most valuable features of this solution are security and stability.The scalability and availability of this solution are the most valuable features.

The feature that I like on Multitenant is the ease - it is very easy for my team to run the database.Maintaining databases is a valuable feature for us.The database becomes pluggable. Inside this container is called a pluggable database and each application contains this pluggable database inside Multitenant. We can then share resources like control files, memory, etc. This lets you stop and start each application without impacting the others. This resource sharing is the most valuable featureThe most valuable features are the speed and ease of use.

Cons
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.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.The price should be lower.The licensing fees can be reduced.The ease of use, or ease of management, could be improved.End-to-end encryption specifically is something the solution needs to have in the next release.It would be helpful to have more querying tools and more development tools for us to work easily with Microsoft.

This solution is a bit complicated when collecting from containers - that feature should be a bit better.It would be beneficial to include this solution with Oracle Enterprise, but Oracle charges additional fees for it.That said, Oracle in general doesn't invest in their UI for any of their applications. If we're talking about the dashboard or other user experience, there is room for improvement. I'm talking about on premises. The cloud version has started to improve.The user interface for this solution can be made better.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I think that everyone knows that with IBM the standard price is higher than the others.We don't see what the specific price of the DB2 license is because we pay for the backup license as a package.Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.

For me, I will go with it if I have the budget. Some features are nicer than before, but at the end of the day, you always have a limited budget. I prefer to upgrade and get a specific hardware when possible. At the end, you will have to make a compromise. You will not get everything you would have liked to have.This solution is a little bit pricey.
