Russ Harrison, DBA Manager for HP, commented "Working with DBI is a terrific fit for HP.  The DBI tools for IBM DB2 LUW install quickly and easily, and our team members are able to achieve fantastic DB2 performance results for our clients very quickly.  DBI's advanced analytics and smart workflows give us not only productivity gains, but also help us deliver great value for our clients."  Mr. Harrison added "There are night and day differences between DBI tools and other tools in the market.  We're excited to be partnering with an organization that is so highly respected in the DB2 community."  

Scott Hayes, President & Founder of DBI, an IBM DB2 GOLD Consultant and Information Management Champion, responded "Too often, many consultants and service providers are keen to work with scripts, free tools, or tools provided by the database vendor, thus essentially doing DB2 tuning by hand, without the best tools for the job, all the while billing clients for more hours and delivering sub-optimal results.  I really admire HP's foresight, leadership, and integrity, and I'm excited about the great results that HP will be able to deliver to its worldwide clients."

Jason Paull, DBI CEO, contributed "The DBI pureFeat™ Performance Management Suite of tools for IBM DB2 LUW implement and automate a unique performance tuning methodology that Mr. Hayes has been teaching at IDUG conferences for many years.  It's not uncommon for a DBI customer to be able to reduce CPU utilization by 25-60% within hours of installation, while concurrently significantly improving application response times.  Under this partnership, HP will be able to easily demonstrate the value it delivers to its clients with trend charts and comparison reports.  And, DBI's smart quality of service alerts will help HP team members be even more proactive in their services delivery."
