IBM's DataWarehouse tools

IBM's DataWarehouse tools
Has anyone heard if IBM is going to continue to enhance and support
their Data Warehouse product? Some discussion is that this product may
no longer be upgraded and just continue to have support at its current
level. Possibly being replaced at some time by something else.
I was just curious if anyones using this and has heard anything.

Thank-You:

...which Data Warehouse product are you referring to? There are a few out
there, I'm sure.

I'll hazard an answer on two points:
(1) IBM is generally a very honest vendor. It would come out with
announcements if a product is going out of support. Or if IBM
does not have future plans for the product.

(2) IBM DB2 OLAP Server and IBM DB2 OLAP Analyzer were basically never
IBM's products. So, there may be rumours along the line of your
question. Again, IBM DB2 DWM may rumoured to be given a cold shoulder as
IBM has DATASTAGE in its stable now.

I will close by saying this again - THESE ARE RUMOURS; GET AN IBMer TO
VALIDATE THEM :-)

Re: IBM's DataWarehouse tools
(in response to Anurag Kumar)
We were looking at trying to get the Pivot/Transform function to work
and my understanding was that I need the IBM DataWarehouse Center and
the Data Warehouse Manager in order to use this function. But we can't
seem to get it to work and this was just a 'test' phase to see if it was
worth getting the product.
I wanted to see if I could use my Websphere II (old DB2ii) to connect
to a 'nickname' on DB2 v7 z/OS & pivot a column and then make the Target
table an MQT table down on the DB2/UDB.

thanks:
