SPEAKERS: Tim Vincent (IBM Toronto Lab)

The combination of skill availability, increasingly complex technology options as well as increased business demand for a greater return on investment have pushed many IT engineering teams to either design or adopt know best practices. DB2 built the Balanced Warehouse, originally, Balanced Configuration Unit, around a set of proven methodolgies and practices that achieve the best overall performance and reliability. Our experience with the Balanced Warehouse and with engineering teams who have designed their own best practices has shown that the up front investment in defining the best practices they follow have reduced the overall number of skill resources needed, provided greater overall availability, and greater performance around their investment. Working closesly with partners and field teams the DB2 development team has defined a set of best practices around warehouse, OLTP, and SAP deployments.
