SPEAKERS: Mary Beth Jeffords (South Carolina Budget & Control Board, DSIT)

Cost has increasingly become an issue for applications on any platform, especially the zSeries. This presentation will cover ways to control the costs of both distributed and traditional workloads using DB2 for z/OS as the database server, such as software pricing options, LPAR configuration, zIIP/zAAP, zNALC, performance and tuning methods and tools, and more that enable DB2 for z/OS to compete with LUW as a database server for distributed workloads.

EXP. LEVEL: Intermediate


Understand the role DBAs now need to play in understanding and controlling costs in their organizations.

Learn about how various software pricing options, hardware options, and LPAR configuration can have a huge impact on the cost of DB2 for z/OS applications and how to gain control.

Learn about options that can minimize the cost for distributed workloads and things to watch out for when developing and implementing distributed applicaitons using DB2 for z/OS as the database server.

Learn about tools and techniques that can maximize performance and minimize resource utilization.

Learn about user experiences with application cost estimation, platform migrations, DB2 subsystem cloning, IBM and third-party tools, and more.
