FORRESTER: The Total Economic Impact of Migrating a Heterogeneous Database Environment to IBM DB2 For SAP And Non-SAP Environments, April 2011 "The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of IBM DB2 on their organizations. This study illustrates the financial impact of adopting IBM DB2 for both SAP and non-SAP applications based on aggregated findings of customers that migrated to DB2 from a variety of legacy database platforms. In conducting in-depth interviews with five global organizations using IBM DB2 both within SAP and non-SAP environments, Forrester found examples of how DB2 delivered key benefits both inside and outside of IT within three key benefit areas: reduced cost of administration, improved operational expenses, reduced storage cost" "Based on data from five DB2 customers, Forrester found the ROI for a representative organization is 192%% with a breakeven point (payback period) of 12 months."
