I spend every day of my life since 1990 as a Db2 DBA both on Db2 for z/OS and Db2 for LUW. During that time, I’ve collected a lot of knowledge that makes my job easier and gets easier and gets the answers to the developer’s questions in a timely fashion.
In February 2016 the DB2 12 Editorial Committee was formed, comprised of volunteers from IDUG’s worldwide community of DB2 users and consultants. This White Paper contains their findings, including practical experiences and independent evaluations of the new features.
DB2 has several new Cloud offerings. With DB2, you can get support for OLTP or Analytics. The database can be hosted or fully managed. This presentation by Kelly Schlamb at the 2015 IDUG Tech Conference in Australia details the three products, their differences and the use cases for each.
This video is a presentation given at the IDUG DB2 North America Tech Conference in May 2015. It begins with Adrian Burke discussing the challenges associated with tuning dynamic SQL. Then Saghi Amirsoleymani comes in to discuss the features in the no-charge version of IBM Data Studio.
In this short article I want to describe a use case in which trusted context is a main part and which allows me to zoom in on a few of the options that are not that commonly described. My use case can also be a good alternative to Oracle and Sybase roles using passwords.
