Better insights, faster processes, lower costs: the data deluge just met its match.
Today IBM introduces DB2 10 and InfoSphere Warehouse 10 for Linux, Unix and Windows. Based on innovations from our labs, the new software easily integrates with big data systems, automatically compresses data into tighter spaces to prevent storage sprawl, and slices information from the past, present, and future to eliminate expensive application code. Over the past four years, more than 100 clients, 200 business partners, and hundreds of experts from IBM Research and Software Development Labs around the world collaborated to bring this product to market.
Faster, faster, faster
During testing, clients performed data warehouse queries up to 10 times faster to speed up decision making, freed up storage space up to 90 percent to dramatically reduce storage needs, and easily migrated data from expensive Oracle Database to IBM DB2 software with 98 percent code compatibility that didn't require changing the data or retraining staff.
We're pretty excited:
“Today’s growing data volumes make it tougher for clients to access the right data when they need it to stay competitive," said Arvind Krishna, general manager, IBM Information Management. “IBM has advanced database and data warehouse technology to the point where data management can be automated and insights shared more broadly than ever before, freeing up decision makers and IT staff to focus on business growth.”
Deeper insights, lower costs
I'd gather you will be too, considering that with these new offerings, you can:
Clients are excited
Take, for example, the largest bottler of Coca Cola products in the U.S., which has saved more than a million dollars over the past four years in licensing, maintenance, and storage costs by migrating from Oracle to IBM database software.” "We’ve reinvested these savings into other business projects, while keeping our operating expenses flat," said Tom DeJuneas, IT team manager. “ As a result, we don’t have to pass rising costs on to consumers, which allow us to maintain our sales volumes and market share.” In addition, the upgrade to DB2 10 further enhances performance and boosts business processes. Coca-Cola Bottling Company has seen the time to process queries decrease dramatically. This improves Supply Chain Management processes with increased average response of SAP workloads from 30 to 60 percent, which in turn helps bring products to market faster.
"We are excited by the arrival of IBM DB2 10. SAP has worked very closely with IBM to optimize DB2 10 for the use with SAP applications. New features like simplified space reclamation, enhanced HA capabilities and Adaptive Compression will help reduce operations costs even further," said Dr. Thorsten Wittkugel, VP DB/OS Platform Development, SAP AG.
