DB2 Database Monitoring, Tuning, and Optimization
Your Db2 investment is considerable and it must function at peak performance, with streamlined administrative schedules and efficient and effective recovery protocols. Maintaining and optimizing the Db2 software and applications with minimal interruptions takes specific skills and expertise which are becoming increasingly rare in the industry.
Whether on the mainframe or on a distributed platform, keeping the Db2 software, applications and databases optimized is critically important to your business performance.
If you fail to maintain your Db2 software, you open your business up to these risks:
- Data breaches: An unpatched Db2 system leaves the welcome door open for cyberattacks. Data breaches have serious financial impacts, especially if regulated data gets compromised in the process.
- Poor compatibility with new technology: As innovations launch in the business world, outdated Db2 versions will not be able to leverage these resources. You end up being forced to use inefficient infrastructure that harms your company’s bottom line.
- Poor user experience: Falling behind on Db2 maintenance can lead to unresponsive systems, unplanned downtime, and other frustrating impacts.
- Lower productivity: When users can’t access the data and systems they need to get their jobs done, their productivity goes down. If this situation occurs frequently, it could even lead to higher employee turnover.
- Lack of agility: Your DBAs have to put out fires and take a reactive approach to working with the Db2 systems. They can’t think strategically, and you end up with an ever-increasing opportunity cost.
- Lack of skills in workforce: Specifically regarding the mainframe. The talent shortage is influenced by mainframes moving away from mainstream technology solutions in the 1990s.
- Cost of labor: As service needs scale up for upgrades, migrations and/or otherwise the associated costs become expensive – this cost increases when a database emergency occurs.
