Abstracts:

Dynamic SQL and the Dynamic Statement Cache
Dynamic SQL is being used more and more in DB2 shops around the world.
Multiple factors are driving this increase in usage. As with most DB2
options, dynamic SQL offers potential benefits as well as new management
challenges. This technical session begins with a brief overview on SQL
tuning followed by a more detailed discussion on managing and tuning dynamic
SQL. Finally, we'll discuss the dynamic statement cache, a DB2 feature that
can help address dynamic SQL performance issues.
Ins and Outs of Distributed Processing in DB2 z/OS
More and more DB2 application workload originates off the mainframe
utilizing technologies like DB2 Connect, Websphere Application Server, and
others. This shift to increased distributed processing presents new
challenges in understanding and managing DB2 application implementation.
This session discusses basic issues about distributed applications,
including distributed fundamentals, implementation considerations, problem
identification, and performance management for your DB2 on z/OS distributed
applications

Who should attend?

This presentation is geared toward any DB2 DBA, application developer,
systems programmer or architect.
