Development teams benefit greatly when the mainframe can be integrated into DevOps practices as if it were simply just one of the many modern platforms available. Zowe, an open-source framework for z/OS, offers modern interfaces for DevOps practitioners to transparently interact with z/OS in a way that is similar to what is experienced on other platforms today. In this session, learn how we envision automation of Db2 provisioning and management within the DevOps stages, map existing Zowe API/CLI capabilities to them, and explain the benefits for various roles found in a modern z/OS environment.

How to Accelerate Db2 SQL Workloads… Without Db2


V10 | Back Bay Ballroom D 
This presentation will look at the in-memory data management trends and possibilities that abound with modern database application development. After briefly examining industry trends, Db2 enhancements and other approaches for accessing in-memory data, we’ll turn our attention to a novel approach offered by Log-On Software’s QuickSelect for Db2. By caching query results outside Db2 for direct access by applications, QuickSelect accelerates Db2 workloads and frees up valuable Db2 resources… all with no change to application code, JCL or Db2 objects.

Db2 for Big Data - A Lakehouse Architecture with Db2


V11 | Republic Ballroom
*livestreamed to VIRTUAL participants*

Lakehouses are a hot topic in the Data Management space today but, what are they and, how can they help you and your users' productivity, while lowering costs, and delivering results?. As companies collect large amounts of data from many sources data architects began envisioning a single system (platform) to manage many different analytic workloads. We explore the concepts behind the modern Data Lakehouse, how they work and why they matter. The need for a flexible, high performance warehouse hasn't abated. However, as data sizes have grown and workloads have diversified, the need for a new and adaptable architecture has only but become, simply, essential. We examine the cost-performance optimization strategies Data Lakehouses enable. Enabling highest performance when workloads demand it and lower cost storage for when they don't, an Enterprise Data Lakehouse offers the flexibility to optimize for the task at hand. With tiered storage, manage costs while balancing the needs of ever more demanding SLAs. Finally, we will learn how DB2 is bringing these concepts together in the enterprise data management space.
