Db2 12 – 12 months agile production experience with more focus on the Data and less on the base

> Pdf Presentation

Migrating to Db2 12 is pretty much the same procedure like every 3 years. Then we get introduced to a variety of levels that control new features and functions being delivered and realize that the every-3-years-same-procedure is history. The levels, their dependencies and behavior are a fundamental change, which was implemented to control agile and more specifically it’s associated Continuous Delivery of future upgrades and fixes. As usual, it comes with benefits, but also challenges.

This presentation not only covers customers experiences migrating to Db2 12, but also how the changed maintenance approach has forced them to change existing procedures.

The second part is the daily operation and exploitation using Db2 12 enhancements from customers of different industries.

The over-all results aren’t bad, but a major conclusion is also that this Db2 version is significantly different than other versions before. It’s the first agile version with all its pros and cons. According to IBMs July 2017 announcement, the new database design “represents the elemental nature of Db2 (think periodic table) and connotes the fundamental importance of hybrid data management.” Where does this materialize in our daily work with Db2? Join this presentation and benefit from the experience of other Db2 customers around the world running Db2 12.

Total environment simulation – Workload Replay in an agile world

> Pdf Presentation

Is your production cloning for development/testing a quick and fully automated procedure? Does it consider differences of the underlying hardware and does it allow to choose and automatically run SQL workloads? Maybe your Db2 cloning needs an upgrade! By using a highly customizable XML script and by exploiting virtualization features we can make a clone YOUR clone and even make it behave like production. However, most importantly SQL Capture/Replay fills the gap of automatically running your production workload for testing. It captures production SQL 24/7 by exploiting highly efficient IFCID-via-OPx technology and it filters and prepares statements for replay. This enables shops to capture any SQL being ever executed and keep them in sets of workloads to be selected for testing. As an integrated part of Db2 cloning, this adds up to a comprehensive cloning solution, not only for objects and data, but even for production workloads. Learn how to integrate individual task for flexible automation and how to choose from four different levels of testing. The levels include simple anomaly alerting, access path verification, cloning and workload capture/replay to easily discover different behavior resulting from changes, like new application releases, or environment upgrades. Find out how easily you can pick and choose from KPI based test automation.

1 – Pdf Präsentation Compliance with compliments! Viable Db2 z/OS workload tracking.

2 – Pdf Präsentation Db2 12 Continuous Delivery – New challenges for deployment.

3 – Pdf Präsentation –  Db2 z/OS Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics… 


1 – Db2 z/OS Security Audit: Compliance with compliments! Viable Db2 z/OS workload tracking.

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.


More about Db2 Audit

Presentation Outline

  • Audit needs and musts Take a journey to GLB HIPAA PCI‐DSS Basel III Sarbanes‐Oxley CA SB1386 Federal Information Security Management Act “ed Flag”Rules (FRCA)5.
  • Solution overview and their Pros/Cons Get an overview about the existing solutions and understand how they work.
  • The viable way – let Db2 do the magic! Learn about Db2 enhancements in Db2 10/11 that deliver the Db2 workload being processed and understand why it’s so efficient.
  • Customer results from the banking industry Receive some experience from a large banking company and how they successfully replaced their Db2 Audit feature based reporting by a modern SQL tracking and analytics process.

 


2 Db2 12 Continuous Delivery – New challenges for deployment.

Fundamental changes in the Db2 z world often lead to concerns. Let’s face it – some changes force us to change! While a Db2 version migration usually took months, or even years, there will be no new Db2 version after 12, but continuous code drops.

This will have a tremendous impact on migration strategies, because we have to find a reliable way to test these code deliveries in a fraction of time. If we make it, Business Divisions will become enthused at how quickly new technology becomes available for new applications. This presentation will describe the difference between Code, Catalog, Function and Application Levels, how you can control them and how you can fallback in case of anomalies. It also illustrates how we still can be pro-active in testing without burning weeks and months.
Learn how to choose from four different levels of testing and a new way of automation. CD-Screening allows you to pick and choose from KPI based test automation. The levels include simple anomaly alerting, access path verification, clone Pre-apply and even workload capture/replay to easily discover different behaviour resulting from a new code Level.

Presentation Outline

Joining this presentation, you’ll learn how to align Continuous Delivery to your Continuous Availability.

  • Agile, Continuous Delivery, DevOps – just buzz words, or new methodologies?
  • Db2 Code, Catalog, Function and Application Levels – differences and dependencies.
  • Activation/Deactivation of new code and how to fallback and when you can’t.
  • Different flavors of (pro-active) CD-Screening and how it can be automated:

* Anomaly alerting based on Incompatibility Change Indicators (ICIs)
* Dyn./Stat.Access Path Change Detection e.g.via Plan Management
* Clone based code change pre-apply exploiting Backup System
* Workload-KPI verification using SQL replay and KPI comparison
