Announcement of DB2 for z/OS Wildfire Workshop for Cloud & Mobile Applications in Southfield, MI ( April 19 - 20, 2017 )

These are exciting times for DB2 for z/OS as we are cloud ready and running mobile applications. This workshop addresses both major breakthroughs. From a cloud perspective, we will address the automation of DB2 for z/OS installation, migration, and provisioning of new DB2 subsystems and members. z/OSMF workflows guide you through the process avoiding human error and some common pitfalls. This workshop also addressees how to use z/OSMF as it relates to DB2 software, specifically SMP/E. From a mobile perspective, DB2 Adapter for z/OS Connect is a service provider that connects RESTful web, mobile, and cloud applications to DB2 in the z/OS environment for service discovery and invocation. DB2 Adapter for z/OS Connect provides an integrated solution including the IBM Liberty Profile for z/OS and the z/OS Connect component. It leverages the IBM Data Studio for tooling support. DB2 Adapter for z/OS Connect provides a fast, dynamic, scalable, and secure solution for you to interact with protected DB2 assets through RESTful services in JSON data format. The DB2 Adapter for z/OS Connect feature is a complete solution that enables customers to make existing DB2 assets such as SQL and Stored Procedures available to the growing mobile and cloud application ecosystem. NOTE – the DB2 Adapter for z/OS Connect is available for z/OS Connect V1 only.  ***DB2 for z/OS Development has made a statement of direction to support z/OS Connect V2 EE, and this workshop will be updated with z/OS Connect V2 EE material shortly after the DB2 code is generally available. Customers can take advantage of DB2 and mobile using the DB2 Adapter for z/OS Connect.

John,


1) As a DB2 DBA I see exciting stuff for developers there (and I hope lots of other people do, too!). Is there a topic or slide-set of things DBAs need to know about this? Systems programmers? Are there things which we need to enable, or build, in order for our devs and customers to take advantage of this?

2) Is this seminar also coming to New England/NYC/the Northeast? Are there “tour dates”?

RE: Announcement of DB2 for z/OS Wildfire Workshop for Cloud & Mobile Applications in Southfield, MI
(in response to Philip Sevetson)

Hi Philip,

The workshops are being updated now with the newest material. For day 1 - DB2 for z/OS and mobile, DBAs and Sysprogs will learn how to use the new native DDF recently announced. We are also working on the DB2 direct connect to z/OS Connect EE (Enterprise Edition) and how to best use it for the new API economy.

Day 2 is of great interest to Sysprogs as they will learn how to use z/OSMF to install and provision a DB2 11 subsystem or alternatively install a DB2 12 subsystem and/or migrate a DB2 11 to 12 all using z/OSMF. Attendees will also learn how to use the software component of z/OSMF for the DB2 environment. All of this would be an interest to any DBA that ever wanted to learn more about how the DB2 install and migration process works as they will go through the steps and bring up or migrate their own DB2 subsystem. 

As for DB2 for z/OS and the just announced provisioning schema changes, the PTFs just became available. See APAR PI73168 for DB2 11 and APAR PI73492 for DB2 12. This feature will be added to the workshop in the near future as well install/migrate/provision. This will be of great interest to everyone involved with schema changes.

We have the two workshops for Southfield and Sacramento announced. We are aiming at one in NYC for late September. We are working out the details. Other locations and dates are being worked on as well.
