IBM believes companies constrained by budgets and resources are at a real disadvantage when it comes time to upgrade their technology, and said its new program can help businesses grow while providing flexibility with new and existing IT infrastructure. To that end, IBM is offering the following migration resource perks:
- A no-charge, detailed financial analysis that shows cost savings clients can achieve by switching from Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic to IBM DB2 and WebSphere software.
- A no-charge, customized technical evaluation and conversion plan to show clients how fast and easy it can be to move up from Oracle to IBM software.
- More than 100 online and in-person skills training courses to add certified DB2 skills to Oracle Database developer and database administrator teams, and WebSphere expertise to Oracle software teams.
- A proof of concept during which IBM works with clients to perform a side-by-side cost/performance comparison between Oracle and IBM software at an IBM Software Lab or client site.
