Session Number: 5201
Track: Data Tech Summit/Ala Carte - II
Session Type: Podium Presentation
Primary Presenter: Mark Ryan [IBM Canada]
Time: Apr 30, 2018 (02:00 PM - 03:00 PM)
Room: Congress C

Session Code: G02
Speaker Bio: I have been part of the team delivering DB2 LUW for 20 years, with leadership roles in documentation, quality assurance, development, and most recently my role is senior manager for DB2 LUW Support. In this capacity I lead a worldwide team responsible for DB2 Support. My current areas of interest include:<br />- self-help for DB2 LUW customers<br />- applying machine learning to better understand customers' experience with DB2 and to anticipate future challenges and opportunities<br />- DB2 LUW as part of a complete hybrid ecosystem, including DSX, DSM, dashDB

Abstract:  This presentation describes an end-to-end example of using Data Science Experience (DSX) with DB2 LUW to solve a practical machine learning problem (analysis of DB2 PMRs / APAR metadata to explain differences in customer experience between DB2 10.1/10.5 and DB2 V11). I will start with an overview of the problem I am trying to solve and then give a quick overview of DSX. The meat of the presentation will be a description (including demo) of the steps taken to exploit DSX with DB2 as the data source to solve the problem. The audience will gain an understanding of the benefits of exploiting DSX with DB2, as well as specific, practical steps to follow to realise these benefits.
