DB2 and SAP Core Banking

IBM DB2 is SAP’s preferred third-party database

IBM DB2 is SAP’s preferred third-party database platform, with over 8000 joint installations worldwide. Both DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for LUW have been specifically optimised for SAP applications, with many new features introduced to improve performance and ease of administration in an SAP environment. IBM works closely with SAP to ensure early support for new database features (for example, DB2 12 for z/OS was certified by SAP as soon as it became generally available in October 2016).
