Free your data

IBM Db2 means more than transactional or operational database solutions. Db2 now also includes solutions for data warehousing and fast data.

Today, data is the most valuable resource of any business, enabling the actions and insights that empower business disruption. But it can only do so if it’s fully liberated to work for businesses. We are working towards a future in which businesses can unleash the power of their databases without constraints, in whatever way best serves their evolving needs.

IBM Db2 enables enterprise architect leaders to make the most of their data by making it easy to deploy it wherever it’s needed, fluidly adapting to your changing needs, and allowing for integration of multiple platforms, languages and workloads.
