November 2021 WDUG VIRTUAL Db2 for z/OS Meeting

30. November 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm CST


Esoteric Functions in Db2

In this presentation I will delve into FTB/FIT, Spatial Indexes, Regular Expressions, Clone tables and Scrollable cursors. All of these could be called esoteric as most shops do not use or even know of their existence! I would hope that after this presentation the viewers will have learned something new about Db2 and perhaps could use one or more of these esoteric functions so that it becomes a “well known” function and not a hidden gem!
