Q&A

technical stuff—and the marketing folks came up with DB2.
ISM: How did it revolutionize
databases?
DH: The revolution was a single
database and the relational model, for transactions and business
intelligence.
ISM: At the time, did your
team realize the impact DB2
would have?
DH: Did we think it would last for
30 years? We were hopeful, but
first we needed to ensure the longterm survival of the mainframe
and port DB2 to open systems
platforms, like UNIX*, on IBM and
non-IBM hardware. But that is a
longer story.
ISM: Though it launched in
1983, you point to 1988 and
DB2 V2 as a seminal point in
its development. Why?
DH: In 1988, DB2 V2 proved it
was viable for online transactional
processing [OLTP], which was the
lifeblood of business computing.
It had already proven its capability
to perform analytical queries, but
1988 made it viable for the heart
of business processing —OLTP. At
that point, it could yield adequate
performance metrics—transactions
per second—though it was still
more expense in compute cost
vis-à-vis IMS DL/I, but Moore’s Law
would continue to narrow that gap.
ISM: What has been the lasting impact of DB2 at IBM?
DH: DB2 was key to establishing
the IBM software business and
making IBM an overall solution
provider—hardware, software,
services. As I said earlier, IBM was
a hardware company in the 1970s
and the software was sponsored by
the hardware businesses to support
their platforms. We reported to our
respective hardware executives.

DB2’s early success, coupled
with IBM WebSphere* in the
1990s, led the transformation
of the business and engendered
the investments that made that
happen. Thus the survival of DB2
is a product of the completeness
and competitiveness of the IBM
software portfolio, not just the
excellence of DB2 itself.

lona, 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and the 1998
Winter Olympics in Nagano] when there was extreme
pressure on performance and any failure was visible
to the world. What made that a pressure moment was
that as soon as the game was played, the race was run
and the scores were posted, it was immediately available to all the press around the world. If they didn’t
have the information immediately after the event—and
there were hundreds of thousands of queries done on
this thing—then we had egg all over our faces.

ISM: Looking back, what’s
been the most surprising
use for DB2?
DH: When you say “surprising,” I
tend to think of applications—the
moon launch, open-heart surgery
or some other gee-whiz application. The closest thing for DB2
was the database system for the
Olympics for several games [the
1992 Summer Olympics in Barce-

ISM: Where do you see DB2 in 30 years?
DH: In the same position as today—a vital database
infrastructure for core business processing within
enterprises. While there’s another business need
being addressed by NOSQL and NEWSQL databases
that will evolve, DB2 will serve the basic business
transactions and business intelligence as it does
today, evolving to respond to the big data business
needs that demand aggregation of data within and
outside the enterprise in surprising volumes with
surprising velocity.
