Mainframe Upgrade Avoided by Switching Db2 Tools

With Elevate DB2, the company identified 50% of Db2 CPU savings

Db2 processing at this grocery wholesaler and supermarket chain was taking up more than half the mainframe’s CPU capacity. At the same time, the company’s transaction volume was growing. A costly mainframe upgrade was in the cards unless the company could find a way to bring the Db2 workload under better control.

The company turned to Syncsort Optimize DB2 as the solution, having concluded that a workload-centric approach to optimization — the approach that is unique to Syncsort Optimize DB2 — was the best choice for identifying Db2 workload savings opportunities.
