Webinar: Why IBM DB2 Database Software Leaves the Competition in the Dust

We all know that IBM DB2 database software is an industry leader when it comes to performance, scale, and reliability. But how does it compare to the competition, specifically Oracle and SAPHANA?

IBM’s Chris Eaton joined IDUG’s DB2 Tech Talk to give an update on IBM DB2 and show how DB2 goes above and beyond our competitors to provide reliable functionality while saving businesses money.

During the presentation, Chris walked the audience through DB2’s latest release, DB2 10.5 “Cancun Release” and the four innovations that make BLU Acceleration  different from our competitors: Next Generation In-Memory, the ability to analyze compressed data, CPU Acceleration, and data skipping.
