IBM Db2 Database Primary Use Case
Mainframe Technical Manager/Service Integration Lead at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
It's not the Db2 LUW, which is Linux, Unix, Windows. It's the mainframe. It's the active-active, high availability environment that we need for the aggressive SLAs that we've got here in Saudi Arabia.

There are some databases for which we see value in using Db2, so we are working with this solution.View full review »
The primary use for our Db2 database is for OLAP (Online Analytical Processing). Our department is using it for data warehousing and data analysis.
We are deploying some of our enterprise systems to Azure. We would like to migrate data there and most of the systems will be running on the infrastructure as a service, so we will have lots of servers. Migrating data from Db2 becomes an important matter.
Our target currently is to create the infrastructure which would include the servers, the backup solutions, the databases, application servers and whatever else we need.
I am an ex IBM employee, and I used to be the brand ambassador for Db2 in Africa. So, I do understand how it works because I've used it with customers. Currently, I am mostly supporting some of the Db2 customers in Kenya.
I am now using version 11.1, but I used version 10.5 for the longest time.View full review »

We are not using this with other users, it is dedicated to our backup solution.
We only have one instance, one user, one service, and we don't have any other users or clients that we connect to.
A database system is a tool used for reporting and to monitor if it is running or if there are any issues. We can set alarms and warnings. It is a backup system that manages the backup.View full review »

I used DB2 two years ago. It's a data warehouse project solution for a bank. I use DB2 as a warehouse and the data stacks for the APL.
My role in this project was as a database designer. I would design the database, the warehouse, and get the requirements.
I am not detailed in the technicality of creating the table in DB2.
I am now selling this product.View full review »
