Hash Access - The HDAM DB2 Table?
Replays available in WMV and M4V formats!

100% of our audience learned something! Today we have a topic that makes IMS people smile. DB2 has a new type of table called hashing which looks a lot like a HDAM database in IMS. Back to the future! No idea what HDAM is? Then watch, learn and enjoy...

Show Host Klaas Brant Commentary

After being a computer operator I made my first steps into the beautiful world called Data Management. Not with DB2, that wasn't born yet, but with IMS. Good old IMS with HDAM, HIDAM and the DL/1 access. Superfast and still used a lot. Phil talks about the hashing table in DB2 10, which brings back the randomizer and the hash access. ... Good old IMS, can we go back in time? Just kidding! Enjoy!
