The launch of DB2 on June 7, 1983, marked the birth of relational database as a cornerstone for the enterprise; 30 years later, DB2 for z/OS is still the undisputed leader in the RDBMS market and the envy of its competitors when it comes to total system availability, scalability, security, reliability, and cost effectiveness. A majority of Fortune 500 companies, including the world?s top banks, retailers, and insurance providers, store mission-critical operational data in IBM System z and DB2 for z/OS.
Why?
