What’s New in Db2 12… or How Do I keep up with all this stuff?

Michael Cotignola,  BMC

With Db2 12 being GA for well over a year now… time for a refresh. We’ll take a cursory look at some of the major new features and enhancements to IBM’s Db2 12, including the new branding! Technically, this release delivers enhancements in all the usual categories, and introduces us to the Continuous Delivery Model.

We’ll conclude by taking a closer look at LOB compression, a much anticipated feature with lots of promise.

Using New Technologies on System Z to Drive Business Analytics

Jim Knisley, zAnalytics Architect, IBM Corporation

Organizations today have multiple types of data dispersed on multiple platforms. Bringing this data together with a single interface that can satisfy the needs of data scientists, data engineers, business analysts, and application developers has been nearly impossible…until now. This presentation provides an in-depth look at Machine Learning, IBM Open Data Analytics, IBM Db2 12 features that support analytics, IBM Data Virtualization Manager and the IBM Db2 Analytics Accelerator and how you can help solve this data dilemma on the modern mainframe.

Db2 for z/OS Gets Agile: Data-as-a-Service and Database-as-a-Service

Db2 capabilities related to both data-as-a-service (Db2's native REST interface, and its relation to z/OS Connect) and database-as-a-service (automated provisioning, automated deployment, strategic direction, and what it all means for developers and DBAs) are covered.
