DBA Tools with System i Navigator - In IBM i shops, the need for a database administrator (DBA) has traditionally been avoided, or very limited. This is due in part to the integration of DB2 for IBM i, and its ease of operation. The 6.1 release of DB2 for IBM i includes a number of new and exciting tools that a database administrator can use to easily handle typical, real-life situations. In this presentation we will explore how someone wearing the `DBA hat` in an organization can sail right through database tasks using the existing and new graphical tools provided by System i Navigator.
1. See that System i Navigator is critical for DB administration and engineering activities
2. Learn the details of the Key analysis tools
Intelligent Business Using DB2 for IBM i - This presentation highlights why DB2 for IBM i provides an outstanding infrastructure for business intelligence and data warehousing. It's simple; don't take your data off the best business system available! We will focus on the DB2 for IBM i enablers for BI and DW. A discussion of "big data" and what IBM is doing around Hadoop and some uses of Hadoop will also be included.
