Our analytics teams really like the integrated RStudio feature with which they can instantly connect to structured data and do their analysis. Traditionally, our analytics team would ask for data in flat files. They had to write the codes in... more»

What is most valuable?

IBM has taken a new approach to database technology. One of the most amazing features of dashDB is how it uses compression to get results in lighting speed. dashDB uses advanced processing which doesn't require the entire dataset to fit in... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I believe that many organizations need to look at how they are servicing their customers. dashDB doesn't necessarily replace your existing infrastructure. However, as an add-on, you can now expand your overall operations and performance goals.

What do you think of IBM dashDB?

Valuable Features The cloud DBMS solution is most valuable to us. • Improvements to My Organization Since my company is an IBM partner, it has enabled us to offer cloud data warehouse solutions on a 100% IBM stack. • Room for Improvement The support channels need to improve. Also the documentation is a bit light. • Use of Solution I have used this solution for around nine months. • Stability Issues In the very beginning, we had some stability issues but that was more due to a misunderstanding on the licensing side than due to the platform itself. Since then, it's been up 99.9% of the times. • Scalability Issues We have not had to deal with this yet. My client has bought the smallest option, i.e., 1TB. We understand that this is scalable but my first client is...

What is most valuable?

I like that the dashDB solution is built on DB2 technology. This means that you can use all the features of a DB2 database, but outsource all the hardware and software maintenance. Cloud solutions/services are the big thing for the future.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The organization (a customer of ours) has used it to create a sort of data hub to use as a foundation for other business applications, such as self-service BI and online web services.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvements in backup and authentication. It needs the ability to increase the number of retained backups to more than 2 days. This is a limitation. Also, the ability to connect an AD namespace to the login of dashDB is a... more»

What do you think of IBM dashDB?

Improvements to My Organization The warehouse DB/dashDB implementation scales a lot better that IBM BLU does. It will also be MPP, so performance should improve. • Valuable Features Ease of migration from Netezza DB. IBM ported over all Netezza's functionality and made the warehouse DB/dashDB the best of breed of the two.  • Room for Improvement Right now, we are implementing on ESX VMware 6.0. Support for this platform is poor. Also, one of the backup/recovery options is broken and IBM is not addressing the issue. • Use of Solution Still implementing. • Stability Issues Yes, containers get corrupted very easily. Restoring them using GPFS can result in a lot of issues. • Scalability Issues No scalability issues.  The way that it scales will help a lot of...
