Migration from Sybase to IBM-DB2 or Oracle?



  • We are planning to modernize our robust power builder /sybase application , that has around 500+ stored procedures,300+ tables. PB application produces 300+ reports,nothing but datawindows which has no PDF printing facility.We are debating whether our new modern database must be DB2 or Oracle ? Both database is legally bought and available for use with our company. Any thoughts ? Thanks.



  • Depends a little bit on the platform you intend to use. Oracle on AIX is a pain, since this is the most neglected (by Oracle) platform the database is running on. On Linux I would tend to use Oracle, especially if you do not have to care about licensing costs.
