Future-proof your data management strategy

Today’s digital enterprise needs fast and actionable insights. This is increasingly a tall order as data resides in higher volumes, in greater variety, in more locations throughout the enterprise and as an increasing number of business users demand that data. When coupled with the complexity of multiple cloud environments, management and integration become extremely challenging. To succeed, enterprises should adopt a hybrid data approach to all things data and analytics.

IBM Db2® Hybrid Data Management offers you the choice to select any type of database or data warehouse, best-of-breed and open source software, while using your existing investments. Our solution collects, manages and provides business insights to data across on-premises, in private and public cloud, or integrated across structured and unstructured data types.

IBM Db2 operational database provides the right data foundation with on-premises and cloud deployment options, industry-leading data compression, robust performance for mixed workloads, modern data security, and the ability to scale and adjust without redesign.

Data warehouse
