What we offer

IBM Information Management solutions deliver trusted information throughout your information supply chain and help you analyze your information to gain insights, identify breakdowns, and make better decisions that will optimize your business.



DB2® is a relational database product designed by IBM and available for a broad range of operating systems, including AIX, i, z/OS and Windows. Over the years, DB2 has been continuously extended with extra packets to have your data more secured and to run processes more fluently. DB2 is being offered in many versions so every company can find the right product in the broad DB2 range.

DB2 helps lower the cost of managing data by automating administration, increasing storage efficiency, improving performance and simplifying the deployment of virtual appliances. By automating tasks such as memory allocation, storage management and business policy maintenance, DB2 is able to perform many management tasks itself, freeing up DBAs to focus on new projects.

Self Tuning Memory feature responds to significant changes in workload by dynamically distributing available memory resources among several memory consumers for the database. DB2’s self-tuning memory manager (STMM) can help you avoid critical impact to database response times that threaten your service level agreements.

Automatic Maintenance feature simplifies storage management by performing database backups, keeping statistics current, and reorganizing tables and indexes as necessary. Well-organized table and index data is critical to efficient data access and optimal workload performance.

Health Monitoring feature proactively monitors situations or changes in your database environment that could result in performance degradation or potential outages. It allows you to set up thresholds for warnings and alarms, and can recommend a course of action to resolve problems, helping to prevent problems before they happen!

Automatic storage feature simplifies storage management where DB2 determines storage characteristics for table spaces including the location of containers, and monitors container growth. This allows for flexibility and leads to better performance.

Self-Configuration feature automatically configures memory, storage, and maintenance operations in DB2 databases. This allows users to be confident DB2 databases and DB2 instances are configured correctly and enables a better out-of-the-box operation.
