Our Shameless Marketing Moment

Our guests mentioned that the IBM DB2 Design Advisor can help you analyze potential MDC tables that would benefit performance.

During DBI's quick commercial, we showed just how easy this analysis can be. DBI's Brother-Panther® accurately identifies the SQL statements that are the most harmful to your database's performance - in just ONE mouse click!. One or more costly statements can be passed to the Design Advisor as a workload to obtain optimum results. And powerful trend charts make it easy to document the performance benefits achieved from any tuning changes you make.

DBI is offering a free educational webinar "TEN SQL Snapshots you MUST run TODAY" on Friday, 21 January, 2pm Central (3pm Eastern, 1pm Mountain, 12pm Pacific, 8pm GMT). Attendees will receive the SOURCE CODE for the SQL Snapshots! For details and the registration link to this free event, visit DBI's EVENTS page.

To protect the intellectual property of our guests, we don't usually make the slide decks available. However, in this case, the slides contained a great deal of helpful technical content and our guests have willingly shared a PDF for our audience. We still recommend you watch the recorded replay first to hear what our IBM guests have to say, then use THIS PDF as a reference.
