Tridex March 2019

Meet us at the Tri-State Db2 Technology Exchange – TRIDEX -, on March 21st, 2019, Db2 Users Group, New York, USA, and attend our presentation
1 – “An Audit a day keeps the lawyers at bay!”
Audit and Compliance is one of the big challenges companies are facing these days. With GDPR and a bunch of other laws either in force or “coming soon to an auditor near you” it is time to bite the bullet and start working with the auditor not against.
This presentation shows how you can answer Who did What When ‐ whenever needed.

2 – „ZOWE – The zGui (r)evolution – First hands on experience and best practices“ from Ulf Heinrich

The evolution of the mainframe had a variety of GUI approaches, some lasted for a while, some never took off at all. However, it was never THE COMMON ecosystem used by all products and all vendors. At the 2018 SHARE, IBM, Rocket Software and CA Technologies announced ZOWE – THE z ecosystem to securely manage, control, script and develop. Of course, an announcement is probably not the final truth, but from what I’ve already seen and used I’m more than enthused. This presentationshows you the basics you need to understand ZOWE, summarizes the steps you need to use it and illustrates how ISPF online and batch applications are supported from the GUI world.

Baltimore Washington Db2 Users Group – June 2018

Meet us at the Baltimore – Washington Db2 Users Group 2018 in June, MD, USA- BWDB2UG – and attend our presentation on Db2 12 Continuous Delivery: “Db2 12 – 12 months agile production experience with more focus on the Data and less on the base”

On October 21st 2016 Db2 12 went GA and several customers have quickly started to take a look at this new version. About a year ago some migrated their production systems and started to gain real life experience.
In July IBM also decided to do a massive rebranding throughout the z – ups, sorry – the Z portfolio. Db2 since then comes with a lowercase b, to place all emphasis on “Data”—your data. With all of this in mind we’ve created this presentation, bundling a year of experience to share best practices and tips for the Data-focused, agile database.

Midwest Database Users Group – June 2018

Meet us at the Midwest Database Users Group – June 2018, Chicago, IL, USA – MWDUG – and attend our presentation on Db2 12 Continuous Delivery: “Total environment simulation – Workload Replay in an agile world”

Db2 Cloning proved to be just the right way to setup a testing, or development environment instantly. Some Db2 shops are refreshing multi-terabyte sized Db2 systems nearly on a daily basis, by exploiting cloning procedures and instant copy hardware features. While associated database objects and their data can be copied in a fully automated and resource friendly way, it turns out to be quite challenging and complex to cover representative SQL workload. Scaling workloads is an easier task, but parallel execution and especially exceptional queries, only executed on months, quarters, or years end can be cumbersome to be included adequately. If we want to avoid compromising quality of testing, our testing tasks become more complex to build and to maintain. Do we have the time for tasks like this? Does it fit DevOps, Agile and Continuous Delivery? Join this presentation and learn how you can upgrade!
