Access Db2 for z/OS data without accessing Db2 for z/OS

If you manage off-platform access to IBM® Db2 for IBM z/OS® data, IBM Db2 Data Gate can help you reduce the cost and complexity of your data delivery. You get a simple, easy-to-deploy way to deliver read-only access to Db2 for z/OS data.

Instead of building and maintaining costly custom code, let IBM Db2 Data Gate do the work. Db2 for z/OS Data Gate simplifies delivery of Db2 for z/OS data within IBM Cloud Pak for Data.


Simple, reliable and less expensive

Superior performance and less expensive than many customized approaches. No need to develop and maintain custom-built solutions.

Access to current Db2 for z/OS data

Integrated synchronization protocol maintains data currency from Db2 for z/OS to optimized targets on IBM Cloud Pak® for Data.

Integrated approach to digital transformation

No need to be concerned about potential cost or workload implications on your operational systems.

Use cases

    Digital transformation and analytics


    Organizations need access to all of the data they manage, including IBM z Systems® data. They need to support modernization and analytics demands without impacting the cost and workload performance of operational systems.


    Db2 Data Gate is designed to be a foundational component to your digital transformation. Modern engagement and analytics applications can share a common infrastructure with mission-critical transactional Db2 for z/OS applications — without custom integration. Take advantage of the valuable data that originates on IBM Z for information-driven projects that run on non-IBM Z platforms.

    New engagement applications


    A surge of new digital applications is driving exponential growth in data access. New seasonal applications with unpredictable usage patterns often use read-only queries of up-to-date data. They are often difficult to plan for and size appropriately.


    Db2 Data Gate can provide a simple, easy-to-deploy solution for these new applications. Data is synchronized between Db2 for z/OS data sources and target databases on IBM Cloud Pak for Data. Additional data sources can enrich data originating in Db2 for z/OS.
