Why use an open source database?

Open source-based databases position businesses to capitalize more cost-effectively on the vast amounts of data generated today. To support enterprise clients in their move to open source technologies for data management, IBM is working closely with its strategic IBM Business Partners to offer new solutions.

IBM open source database solutions help enterprises implement a hybrid data environment that includes both relational and non-relational components. By providing a single view of the data across the enterprise, these solutions offer a cost-effective way to integrate multiple, complex data sources for smarter, quicker, data-driven decisions and actionable insights.
