Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Ember has been attending my IDUG presentations for many years and it's been a pleasure to mentor her. No doubt, she's incredibly smart and talented. Somehow she's taken many of the things I've taught over the years and figured out how to do a better job presenting the ideas and concepts. Not only was Ember singing my songs today, but she's written some of her own hits too. Check out the SQL she wrote and shared in this presentation! It makes my brain hurt! Thank you Ember for an excellent presentation!

During today's quick 3 minute commercial, DBI demonstrated its new Advanced Index Benefit Analysis. When db2advis tells you that you can get a 98% cost improvement by creating several indexes, which indexes are the most beneficial? Which are marginally or minimally helpful? This challenge has plagued DBAs since Version 6 of DB2. Finally, DBI has automated answers for you! Don't skip the commercial!
