9:00-10:15 "DB2 Connect - Understand and Exploit!"
Presenter: Brett J. Elam , IBM Corporation
DB2 Connect is a constantly evolving structure which enterprise applications often hinge upon for day-to-day business operations. But what is really going on under the covers? There are many enhancements being made to it in the wake of DB2 10 (new data types, connection profiles, etc.). Are you in a position to take advantage of these? With so many supported languages and drivers, how would your enterprise roll out DB2 Connect driver updates to thousands of workstations? In order to reduce complexity and potentially increase performance, have you considered connecting clients directly to DB2 for z/OS and bypassing DB2 Connect Server? These topics and many others will be discussed in this presentation.
10:30-11:45 "Optim Configuration Manager - Seamless Application Management"
Presenter: Brett J. Elam, IBM Corporation
Application development and management has long been a battle, whether the issues lie in resource hogging applications, version updates, or high availability. This session will feature one of IBM's newest products, Optim Configuration Manger, to combat these struggles. Finally, you have a way to set rules to proactively and reactively handle misbehaving application transactions, throttling connections, optimizing connection pooling, and dynamically redirect applications to other data sharing members without code changes!
