SPEAKERS: Karl Fleckenstein (IBM Germany)

The unique partnership between SAP and IBM gave IBM the possibility to optimize "DB2 for Linux, Unix, and Windows" for SAP applications, like SAP ERP or SAP NetWeaver BI. In addition a much better integration of DB2 features into the SAP applications was achieved. DBAs should know about those aspects of the DB2 integration into SAP applications with regard to operating DB2 more efficiently. After a short introduction into SAP's software components, special attention will be given to the seamless integration of important DB2 features such as compression, automatic memory management, automatic storage, DPF, MDC, online table move, DB2 monitoring, Workload Management, HADR and other features for simplified database administration and configuration. I will also provide SAP customer experiences and best practices how DB2 can be used more efficiently in an SAP environment.
