Fast INSERT performance speeds the way to getting new data into DB2, for ETL, bulk ingest jobs, and even just day-to-day transactions. In this new blog entry, we look at several helpful tips for making INSERT run as quickly as possible.
In February 2016 the DB2 12 Editorial Committee was formed, comprised of volunteers from IDUG’s worldwide community of DB2 users and consultants. This White Paper contains their findings, including practical experiences and independent evaluations of the new features.
