"Reliable, robust with great features."
"We are dealing with millions of transactions a month and the performance is very good."
"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."
"Db2 Database has given us good results since we have started to use it. We predominantly use IBM hardware, and this is one of the reasons why we started to use Db2 Database. Db2 Database has a very good HADR capability. High availability resilience is also good in this solution. It also has pureScale, which allows you to upgrade one node to get very good and high-level resilience. If you are using a database on five nodes, you can take one node down, upgrade that, and let that node up. You can then bring the second node down, upgrade that, and so on."
"Very good for performance and scalability."
"Your iOS, your throughputs, your performance cycles, you cannot touch it with Microsoft or with Oracle scalability-wise. That is far and away the most scalable systems and the highest performing systems of the set of them."
"it is very stable and runs smoothly once it is deployed and it is almost maintenance-free."
"I like that its true active-active. For example, if there are two instances within a cluster, we can take one of them down and there's no failover or switch over. There's no primary and secondary, it's true active-active. We can take one side down and we can upgrade that with new maintenance or a new version, obviously testing coexistence beforehand, without impacting the business."
"The flexibility in design is very good."
"The functionality of the solution is excellent."
"Teradata features high productivity and reliability because it has several redundancy options, so the system is always up and running."
"Teradata has good performance, the response times are very fast. Overall the solution is easy to use. When we do the transformation, we have all of our staging and aggregation data available."
"I like this solution's ease of design and the fact that its performance is quite good. It is stable as well."
"It's a pre-configured appliance that requires very little in terms of setting-up."
"The performance is great, we are able to query our data in one operation."
"They should simplify the management of Db2 as a relational database system. There should be the simplification of management. This is probably one of the most important asks for being successful in the future."
"The technical support team is not very good when compared to the efficiency of Oracle's support."
"GUI needs improvement."
"There could be better integration with some cloud solutions."
"The capabilities of this solution could improve."
"Microsoft SQL Server is comparatively very simple to use. I wish IBM would move towards making Db2 easy to use for both basic and advanced users. This is where I see room for advancement. Db2 is also more expensive than Microsoft SQL Server, and its price can be reduced. The replication feature needs to be there in Db2. Microsoft provides similar functionality in SQL Server. IBM also has similar functionality, but it exists in a different product. So, to have the replication ability, you have to buy a different product. It makes sense to have this functionality within Db2 instead of a different product. It will also be helpful in terms of competition. In Africa, the problem for Db2 is competition. Oracle Database and Microsoft SQL Server have been in this market for a very long time. These companies have built the ecosystem and the brand within this market for a very long time. So, they are very popular with users. Db2 or IBM came a little later in the game, and that's where the problem lies. They also don't do a lot of marketing for it, which is also a problem."
"The solution could be more modern and have updated database technology."
"Performance is something that can be improved with DB2."
"The solution is stable. However, there are times when we are using large amounts of data and we can see some latency issues."
"The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale."
"Teradata should focus on functionality for building predictive models because, in that regard, it can definitely improve."
"I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved."
"I would like to see more integration with many different types of data."
"It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data."
"Teradata needs to expand the kind of training that's available to customers. Teradata only offers training directly and doesn't delegate to any third-party companies. As a result, it's harder to find people trained on Teradata in our market relative to Oracle."
Teradata's portfolio of big data analytic solutions, integrated marketing applications, and services help organizations gain a sustainable competitive advantage with data.
