Mr. Scott Hayes, President and CEO of DBI, stated, "It really makes everyone at DBI proud when companies like PartsSource benefit from our software. Through DBI's assistance and optimization tools, PartsSource not only eliminated the need for a hardware investment but also enhanced system performance."

"The selection of DBI as a provider for performance tuning was not only the best technical choice on the market, it was a great financial investment," stated Dan Betting, VP Information Systems at PartsSource. "We were about to make a substantial investment in hardware. By teaming with DBI, we avoided that investment, realized an instant ROI, and improved quality of service for our valued customers!" Mr. Sam Powell, DBA for PartsSource, added, "Using the DB2 advisor was not sufficient. The DBI tool suite provides capabilities that can't be found within DB2. By using DBI we improved performance from 6 seconds to 3 milliseconds. We also improved our I/O per second, dropping IOPS from 4,000 to an average of less than a thousand."
