Why Read This
IBM DB2 Audit Management Expert (AME) currently supports only the mainframe environment, with support for other platforms planned for the future. Overall, AME offers basic support for reporting, policies, and alerting, but lacks advanced features like analytics and intelligence, integration with packaged and file-level auditing, and integration with other compliance solutions. DB2 AME offers more features and functionality than the native DB2 database auditing, but it's not free. For even more advanced auditing, IBM offers a product called IBM Consul Insight, recently rebranded Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager (TCIM). This product is also in the Forrester Wave™ evaluation of the enterprise database auditing and real-time protection market.
