DB2 12 Continuous Delivery - New challenges for deployment

 Ulf Heinrich, Director of Solutions Delivery at SOFTWARE ENGINEERING GmbH

 Starting with version 12, DB2 goes agile and code fixes, as well as new features and functions will be delivered in a continuous stream, so called Continuous Delivery. While this change intends to make new technology available faster than in a three-year cycle it'll also affects the way we did DB2 migration and testing before. This presentation provides an overview about DB2 Levels and how they affect the DB2 subsystem, the Catalog/Directory, SQL and DDL. More importantly, I'll show how changes can be applied safely and what levels of quality assurance and testing can be passed to assure Continuous Delivery goes well with Continuous Availability.

Compliance with compliments! Viable DB2 z/OS workload tracking

 Ulf Heinrich, Director of Solutions Delivery at SOFTWARE ENGINEERING GmbH

 Audit and Compliance is a need that many companies want and have to fulfill. There's different ways and tools that promise to be able to do it, but what can they really do and what are the associated costs?

This presentation introduces DB2 10/11 technology exploitation that delivers any DML, DDL, DCL being executed in a DB2 environment along with identification details. Learn how you can run Audit analytics against a long-term repository, pinpointing who executed a query, when and from where. Analyze your entire workload to understand access patterns and abnormalities.
