There is no Data Studio for the MAC.

There are products from other vendors besides IBM.

Here is a link to one that I know nothing about>
Just practicing my Google skills and trying to be helpful.

Why not a virtual windows OS on Mac OS X (I think there's a sw for
virtualization in Mac). There you can install DB2 & Data Studio.

I did it in the past to have a Mac OS running in Windows. Nothing
exceptional in a Mac OS, only more expensive.

IMHO of course.

Data Studio and Max OS X
(in response to Max Scarpa)
Some of us will disagree with that statement. I used Windows since before
it was even called Windows. I always scuffed at the Apple fan boys ...
"they are just blinded by love". When I made Apple Mac OS X my primary
workstation a couple of years ago I always had a Windows VM up and
running. Well, I almost never bring it up now. The only exception is when
I need to do Data Studio. And my opinion of the Apple fan boys ... they
were right and it was me who was being blinded by the love of Microsoft
tools (they do have really nice programming tools)

Unfortunately for Microsoft and fortunately for Apple, I am quite typical.
The era of Windows PC is over. As a matter of fact, the era of any kind of
PC is over. No, mainframes are nto going to take over the world but we are
going to see a very fragmented environment with end-user computing getting
a bit of everything including some Windows, and some Mac OS X and some
Android and some iPad and some iPhone etc. Because we believe this is the
futire, we are pushing DB2 in that direction delivering DB2 for Mac OS X,
DB2 for Android and you can guess what other things are coming :-).
Windows runnign in a VM is not the future, it is a crutch to lean on. DB2
for Mac OS X is the right solution if you are on a Mac.

(in response to Leon Katsnelson)
I was sure MANY would have disagreed with this statement :-))).
Unfortunately love is blind and there are people believing there was
some Blessed or Saint working in Apple.

Anyway I only said Mac didn't impressed me too much and if Peter needed
Data Studio he could use virtualization as you do, that's all.

Personallly I like android and I discovered you can use Brexx for
android programming (it's not the best but for me it's ok), avoiding to
learn java for now. Anyway it's hard for me imagine companies having all
Macs as pc,tablets or cell phones Here Macs are for high level managers
or rich consultants (they cost a lot here and even in US as I saw in
May...don't know if Mac manufacturer pays workers so much) . On the
contrary I still have a old pc (luckily a post pentium II) with 1 Gb of
memory. It freezes when I start DB2 express-c with Data Studio (which is
a little bit 'heavy') :-( and crashes if I add Access. This is the
situation down in the trenches. Only generals in HQ have Macs.

Hi.

 

You could vote for the RFE https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=125025

or if you download Db2 Developer Community Edition for MacOS that includes a copy of DataStudio https://www.ibm.com/us-en/marketplace/ibm-db2-direct-and-developer-editions
