WE are just moving to SAP for some applications and we are going to use DB2 UDB on AIX.
What is the difference from buying DB2 with the SAP software or getting it from IBM. If we got it from IBM we would get DB2 8.2.2 Enterprise version.
We have heard the DB2 from SAP is run time only with no DB interface except through SAP database admin.
What are the reccommendations?
What are the best practices?
Purchasing the DB from SAP or the DB vender?
Seeking help from other who have this knowledge.
