DB2 is a Relational Database Management System that stores the data you are working with, helping you to plan what you want to do with it and a collection of computer software programs that can perform the task.
Essentially, its function is to make both the storage and management of data an easier process. The program can be utilised in a wealth of ways, including analysing the results of research experiments, recording the purchases of a business and locations and serial numbers of the equipment used.
The software is particularly useful for those handling sensitive data or data that needs to be manipulated and analysed interactively. Other features include data input, update, storage, security, extraction, analysis and report generation. It is useful for anyone looking to work with data analysis or a similar field within the IT industry to familiarise themselves with the software.
