  • Leverage the latest DB2* SQL advancements
  • Achieve exceptional cost savings— between 15 and 18 percent of expected replacement costs, and between 10 and 30 percent to perform a manual migration. (Larger installations aren’t able to implement a manual migration, with some installations requiring a project timeline of almost 19 man-years.)
  • Gain access to a large, young technical resource pool for future systems maintenance
  • Benefit from reinvigorated developers and end-user resources
  • Significant value from easier business analytics and intelligence
  • Application mobility, allowing delivery of functionality to current and future channels (tablets, mobile devices, the Web, SOA, etc.)
  • System as a service and cloud computing capabilities
  • Dramatic performance improvements in selected cases
