Short term profit vs long term market share
IBM Marketing has a long history of favoring short term profit over long term market share.  The short term profit is obtained by encouraging applications and databases to be inefficient and use excessive CPU.  Then charge for CPU usage.

IBM must choose between what is best for its customer always and best for IBM long term vs what is best for IBM short term.
