By Jordan Hodges posted Wed January 15, 2020 04:39 PM


The IBM® Database Conversion Workbench (DCW) is a no-charge application that integrates many of the tools used for database conversion into a single integrated environment, providing a simple framework to take you through the conversion process.

DCW is an offline tool that helps migrate Oracle Databases to Db2 LUW, IBM Db2 Warehouse and Db2 on Cloud

Converting your database from one vendor to another is often a difficult and time-consuming task. DCW provides an integrated workbench of tools to help facilitate converting your databases to IBM Db2 and IBM Db2 Warehouse (formerly dashDB Local).


DCW provides the following benefits:

  • Common graphical interface with uniform look and feel for all phases of the conversion
  • A consolidated process with well-defined steps based on best practices
  • Faster enablement for client and partner teams in conversion methodology
  • Wizards that guide you through all the steps of the conversion process
  • A lightweight, standalone version of DCW called Database Harmony Profiler that can be accessed from the command line.
