A Brief Note on DB2
In 1983, IBM, one of the front runners in the industry of technology, has introduced an RDBMS or a Relational DataBase Management System called DB2. It originally ran on the company’s MVS or Multiple Virtual Storage main frame platforms.
It got its name from the fact that it makes a shift from the traditional hierarchical database models to the new and modern relational models. DB2 worked exclusively on IBM platforms but because of its features, it became available in other different platforms and operating systems like Windows,UNIX, and Linux.
DB2 and SQL
A relational database like DB2 provides a declarative model of all the data and can make it all accessible through queries. Because of this, IBM invented SQL or the Structured Query Language. It is a simple language that is pretty similar to the English language and it has now become the standard.
