MINNEAPOLIS — November 10, 2023—Fortra today announced the availability of its business intelligence solution Sequel as a secure and supported alternative for Db2 Web Query, an IBM i tool recently withdrawn from the market. 

Fortra’s Sequel delivers the features and functionality that Db2 Web Query customers rely on, such as a secure, browser-based deployment and a graphical interface. It also runs natively on IBM i. Sequel can directly access Db2 tables as well as data on other platforms, such as Microsoft SQL Server, ORACLE, and MySQL.   

“Our experience supporting customers who have relied on Sequel for decades has shown us how important business reporting and Db2 data is to the success of an organization,” said Tom Huntington, Executive Vice President of Technical Solutions, Fortra. “We know many Db2 Web Query customers are already urgently looking for a supported replacement and Sequel offers them a great alternative.”
