White Paper Published By: IBM
Published:  Jul 05, 2016
Type:  White Paper
Length:  11 pages

This white paper is written for SAP customers evaluating their infrastructure choices, discussing database technology evolution and options available. It is not easy to put forth a black-and-white choice as the SAP workloads straddle both real-time analytics and extreme transaction processing, and infrastructure choices can now be vast, given technology advancements around in-memory and faster processing speeds. 

IBM offers DB2 with BLU Acceleration to provide extreme performance without limits for analytics and DB2 PureScale for flexible and comprehensive scaling capabilities for SAP ERP. According to IBM, these DB2 configurations running on Power Systems form the complete solution for all SAP customers. Considering all options in the market, and their maturity, IDC would recommend that SAP users consider adopting IBM DB2 as the data platform for the full range of SAP applications, both transactional and analytics.
