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.

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.

Some of the most valuable features are the scaling from a small very cheap installation to a very large enterprise installation. In addition, the backups and assistance are good.

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.
