Machine Learning Optimizer Feature in Db2
This presentation looks at the Machine Learning Optimizer in Db2. In particular, the first use is for better cardinality estimation (estimating the number of rows within the optimizer plan). We look at capabilities in the Tech Preview that has been available for some time now. We will also look at the what will be done towards getting it out for production use. Some usage scenarios comparing the new functionality with the traditional optimizer functionality will be presented. Click register for details...

Db2 Always-On Architecture
The IT landscape has changed in the past 10+ years with IT systems and customers being global rather local. This has created a number of problems as peak times can now come in waves from around the globe and batch windows have shortened. This volume increase has driven an explosion in data volumes and server horsepower for even simple applications. Leading IT organizations need to handle this change and react as quickly as the business requires.

Db2 UDFs : Beyond the Basics
Db2 User Defined Functions (UDFs) are a largely ignored tool in the developer's armoury, providing exciting and in some cases unique capabilities. This presentation will go beyond creating simple UDFs to look at more complex use cases and capabilities. A particular focus will be on table UDFs and why they sometimes are better than stored procedures.

Db2 Warehouse Reference Architectures for X86 & Power
We are announcing two new Reference Architectures which are designed to optimize Db2 for high end - petabyte scale - warehouse/OLAP workloads. These reference architectures are called "Db2 Warehouse Reference Architecture for X86" and "Db2 Warehouse Reference Architecture for Power" and are designed to be on-premises follow-ons to our Db2-based analytic appliances (PDOA and IIAS). In this session we will review the next generation of Db2-based platforms for warehouse/analytic workloads and drill down into the architecture and other details of these two new offerings..

Db2 pureScale on AWS - The New Experience
With the availability of Db2 pureScale on AWS as a self-managed service, not only does it continue to provide the same value propositions as in on-premise deployments, it opens up many other opportunities. This session introduces the new revolutionary journey, unveils the added benefits, covers the new use cases that break the traditional "time-barrier" in on-premises deployments and drastically reduces the total cost of ownership. The session wraps up with a sneak peek at the next phase of enhancement in this AWS journey as well as the path on other public clouds.

Db2 Click-2-Containerize
Deploying an existing Db2 to OpenShift or Cloud Pak for Data usually involves some form of export and import and a lot of work! Rather than you having to do all of the hard work, we introduced the Click to Containerize tool to help you move your on premise Db2 Linux database directly to the Cloud - with no exporting of data! A lot has changed in the last year and Click to Containerize Version 2 is now in technical preview! This session will take you through the new enhancements to the IBM Db2 C2C program and how it can help modernize your Db2 databases quickly and efficiently!

Use Profiles to Monitor and Control Db2 Application Context
With increased popularity of distributed applications, related Db2 system and application definitions were defined in distributed application servers. Sub-optimal definitions could impact on overall Db2 health. Db2 z/OS provides capabilities to create profiles to monitor and control various aspects of a Db2 specific system and application contexts in Db2 profile tables. Db2 13 extends the profile tables to new attributes for local and remote applications. Maryela will review existing profile capabilities and introduce Db2 13 extensions as well as discuss use case examples. Click register for details...

An Audit a day keeps the lawyers at bay!
Stricter government regulations for Data Protection, Monitoring and Auditing require even more vigilance for the CSO, not only to control prohibited access, but also database activities of authorized entities to do their jobs. Beside the organizational issues, cost based challenges should be in focus: Is this 360 degree solution achieved CPU friendly (e.g. z/OS OPx buffer technology)? Are reports and audit preparation based on IBM GUI standards (Eclipse, Zowe)? Is used technology IBM compliant or Vendor specific (Code or appliances)? Click register for details...

A Row's Life
Rows in a DB2 z/OS database get mauled and moved and wholly and partially duplicated. There are different ways to find them and different surroundings. And most DBAs find they need to understand these transformations thoroughly to manage performance and recovery and even security. In this presentation, we take a light-hearted view of one row's life to emphasize some of the internals of DB2 on the z/OS platform.

Temporary Tables in DB2 SQL. DGTT and CGTT and more. How to use effectively. Lessons learned!
The SQL concept of 'temporary tables' allows for creation of powerful SQL. Understanding the different types of temporary tables will allow the end-user the option to create useful SQL that may be relatively simpler to understand and allows great flexibility. The presentation will attempt to clearly drive home the difference between DGTT and CGTT. I will share the experience of how a simple DGTT was used in a new high-volume transaction and cost was relatively high. Switching to CGTT fantastically reduced cost!

FAQ 2: Can I get a PDF copy of the slides?
ANS 2: We often make the slide deck available for download, but it is up to the presenter. We protect the intellectual property of our guests.

FAQ 3: Why is the show called The Db2Night Show when the events are held during the day?
ANS 3: Like many late night TV Shows, recordings actually occur during the daytime with live studio audiences. How many of you would get out of bed at 11pm to watch DB2 on TV?

FAQ 4: The show recordings occur during US time zones. What about those of us in Europe and Australia?
ANS 4: Our challenge is finding show guests. We often have European speakers; our show time is late afternoon for them. For other parts of the world, this can be tricky.
