May 19, 2004

"Big Blue officials said the latest DB2 Universal Database goes beyond what rivals Microsoft and Oracle offer with their respective SQL Server and 10g products."

 "Chief among these features that let the database "learn" about changes and adjust, is a new query optimization technology from IBM's LEO (learning optimizer) research and development project. "
In the article, Paul Rivot, director of database services and business intelligence software at IBM, said,
"Our optimizer technology and LEO is much more advanced, especially on Oracle -- you have to keep giving their optimizer hints and tips on what to do," Rivot said. Another tool, Autonomic Object Maintenance, adjusts tables and backs up data instantly after a DBA programs it to do its maintenance."
