The client was using IBM DB2 database and wanted to migrate to PostgreSQL due to 2 main reasons:

  • PostgreSQL is an object-oriented database (ORDBMS) whereas DB2 is only relational (RDBMS)
  • PostgreSQL is a highly secure, open source tool while DB2 requires a commercial license

Due to lack of in-house IT expertise, the client was not in the position to manage data inconsistency across multiple platforms and was unable to kick-off the migration process
