Also, DB2 9.5 or 9.7 has the Oracle compatibility layer built-in. The pitch is to organizations that the pain of migrating from Oracle->DB2 is dramatically mitigated when you don't have to completely rewrite your application code. That was the technology IBM licensed/invested to get from EnterpriseDB.
Might be another reason to consider DB2 in the organization.

With DB2 v9 data compression is comming "out-of-box"... that's might be one of the arguments...
I have noticed that from quality of support and from the cost perspective it's usualy better combination (at least in last few years):
SAP-DB2 Siebel-Oracle DB
Examples? OBIEE (former Siebel Analytics) to DB2 v9 certification was released by Oracle less than 3 months before DB2 v8 support was dropped by IBM (April 30th). Needless to say that 3 months is not enought time for customers to test applications with supported database version. At the same time OBIEE is certified with Oracle 9, 10, 11 (different releases).
