What needs improvement?

Better promotion. Sybase seems little known. I noticed it on DB websites.

Developers would not dealing with licenses when doing install and using it. Simply install and use.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used DB2 on AS400. It was great. I switched due to an employer switch.

What needs improvement?

Cluster features: The Cluster Edition didn't get the same level of reliability as the Enterprise Edition did.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In most cases businesses choose software products that they need for daily business activity; unfortunately, a database in most cases is not an option. Within my recollection, there was only one time in the company that I worked for in the… more »
