Awaken your Data with RESTful Access to Db2! OData!

100% of our audience learned something! The new IBM Data Server Gateway for OData is a standards-based way for customers to leverage Db2 in modern Cloud and Mobile application development environments without requiring database drivers on the client. This show described what OData is, how it works with RESTful calls, and what you need to get it working in your environment. Enjoy the replay!


Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

George is definitely one of my Top 10 favorite IBM people. He's a technology guy, honest, warm, with just a little sprinkle of sales speak. He's genuinely an advocate for the DB2 technology he represents, and he's really good at helping people understand complex topics. I'm not an application developer, but after George's presentation I'm itching to give this OData thing a test drive! Not only was his presentation comprehensive, but George gave us a live demonstration too!
