Leading an organization and addressing tough business questions requires fact-based answers that you and other decision-makers can believe in. Organizations need these answers as they strive to keep pace with higher user expectations. However, with budget cuts and the demand for more business analytics, the best way to do that is by leveraging existing investments that can deliver a competitive edge. If your data resides on IBM® DB2®, it’s time to maximize your ROI.
DB2 Query Management Facility (QMF™) 10 for z/OS® delivers a new dimension in enterprise business intelligence and reporting with a radically new set of business analytics features and functions. The newest components, QMF for Workstation and QMF for WebSphere®, open QMF customers to an entirely different set of applications and potential solutions. All QMF components — Classic, HPO, Workstation and WebSphere — have been enhanced. Join us for this complimentary webcast for a full update on the entire QMF family and how it can help give you fast access to the most current business information. We will also demonstrate business analytics features and functions such as dashboards, KPIs, graphical queries and reports, OLAP data access, and more. If you haven’t examined the many new features in QMF 10, you may be surprised at what’s available today.
The webcast discussion will also include:
· On-demand access to enterprise business information, delivery and scaling across multiple platforms
· Support for dynamic and static SQL, massive result sets and stored procedure results
· Deploying the same QMF content across differing regions, and automatically routing QMF queries and procedures to different DB2 subsystems
· New dashboard capability, with visually rich page-based reports, enhanced OLAP support and over 150 new analytical functions
