The Clones have landed - Watch Out! (A09)

Topic: 2008 NA

Subtopic: DB2 for z/OS

DATE: 2008-05-21 (09:45 AM - 10:45 AM)
SPEAKERS: Steen Rasmussen (CA)

This presentation will cover all the details worth to know prior to implementing one of the new DB2 9 for z/OS object types - Cloned Tables. A first view into this new feature might confuse a lot of users since the underlying structure and behavior is quite different from the table types we have been using in the past. Prior to implementing Cloned Tables, it is important to understand how SQL and Utilities work on this new object type in order to understand where a Cloned Table can be useful and satisfy a certain business need. Leaving this presentation, the attendee will be fully armed to attack the Clones.
