We are integrator vendors in Bolivia. We are partners with IBM. It's fairly easy to use it and it has a free trial, therefore, it's really easy to try. I would tell anyone interested it's worth it to take a look. It's really, really simple. I'd rate the solution at a ten out of ten.

For any database project, I really like to see good thought going into design upfront and use the standards so that people know what things mean about having to rediscover it when you go from one application to the next. So I believe in at least a place to share the vocabulary, if not a controlled vocabulary defining things, which is pretty old-fashioned I'm afraid. I also believes that companies need to pick a direction and stick with it and support it. And if they're going to go with this solution for a couple of years or if you had to have several solutions happening in parallel, you need to have really good criteria about when you go from one to one or when you go to another because sometimes it's challenging. It doesn't help the business if we're not being consistent.

The areas of the solution that is needing the most improvement are separating compute from storage, elasticity, which means scaling up and then retracting.

The biggest problems we have is when the backup solution is failing or slow and we run out of log space, which has happened probably a couple of times in the last four years. It's traced back to something that changed on Tivoli Storage Management.

Some of the best features are stored procedures, parallelism, and different indexing strategies.

I think it scales really well and as long as you take enough time to learn a little bit about it, it works really well.
