Big data impacts every industry from finance markets to agriculture and beyond. John Deere, one world’s largest suppliers of agricultural machinery and supplies, gathers telematics data from sensors on its machinery while in use in the field. The sheer volume and velocity of this data caused John Deere to redesign one of the applications that manages this information in order to meet business and scalability demands.

Join us for this complimentary webcast as we explore big data from an agricultural perspective. You’ll learn how the John Deere application addressed the challenges of big data using IBM® DB2® for z/OS® within its solution. The session also covers some of the key capabilities of DB2 for z/OS used in the solution such as page size, clustering, partitioning, sequence objects and APPEND. Attendees will also experience John Deere’s application suite of products through two short videos.

Join us after the webcast for a live question-and-answer session. This webcast will also be available for replay after the event.
