IBM Db2 Room for Improvement

AlessioVilla
System Administrator at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Because this solution is a big data database only dedicated to the application server, it is very difficult for us to assess areas of improvement. We use the database, so we don't have any other requirements or need to use it in any other way. The licensing fees can be reduced. While we don't see the breakdown, we know that IBM licenses for the backup system are very expensive. View full review »

IBM just came out with new hardware in September, so they are getting ready for the cloud. If they can push through with all those features they're talking about, I think they have a good product lined up. Right now, the solution needs to have end-to-end encryption, to be cloud-ready, to have native support for Linux, and built-in data scientist workbenches. These are promised to us in the new release, and I hope that happens. End-to-end encryption specifically is something the solution needs to have in the next release. View full review »

We would like to see a web-based interface for this solution, as it would help to improve visibility. It would be helpful to have more querying tools and more development tools for us to work easily with Microsoft. For example, ODBC drivers would make work easier for our development team.

The ease of use, or ease of management, could be improved. There are many improvements all the time on the solution. There is no one thing that I would mention. IBM invests a lot of money to improve the tool and maintain it. There are improvements all the time happening in different areas. View full review »

It would be nice if it was easily available on all platforms because nowadays, it is not there as a general database. View full review »
