Personally, I'm a big fan of the black box "business logic server". ISVs can write super-powerful high performance business logic that uses both SQL and native access as necessary and supplies interfaces via browser, web service and REST. It can run in a partition on a tower, or on a blade in a rack.

Just think of RPG as power tools for DB2: when you really, really need to get there faster than SQL can do it.

I like it.

A p,i and z consolidation would allow IBM to start on the merging of the 3 flavors of DB2. Keeping native access (ISAM,VSAM or whatever you want to call it) would of course be essential to us.

Call it a black box or some kind of DB2 OS/LPAR/appliance.
