Integrate Db2 for z/OS database changes in your enterprise DevOps pipeline
Typically, the first focus for a Development team is implementing a DevOps pipeline for application changes, whereas, in practice, many application changes also require Db2 z/OS database changes. That introduces a dependency on DBAs to deploy code with multiple hand-offs between DBA, application developer, and Data Modeler, which in turn creates unnecessary bottlenecks and deployment delays.

A very untraditional approach implementing schema changes!
The most commonly used methodology implementing Db2 schema changes is to compare new/old structures and create the worklist to execute the changes - being online or deferred or the DBA nightmare of UDCL. This approach can result in some surprises like the requirement to fall back or access path changes due to altered indexes/tables/columns/programs. This presentation will illustrate how a complete different approach can be implemented mitigating most of the risks/challenges - done by real customers.

A look at Graph and REST with Db2
In this session we'll walk through two exciting additions to Db2 11.5.4: Db2 Graph and Db2 REST. Graph databases are all around us. Streaming services use graph databases to manage their assets, understand their users' viewing habits and create personalized recommendations, network providers use them to model networks, manage issues and identify breaches, and insurance companies use them to identify fraud. Let's see how we can use both technologies to find relationships in our data.

Mitigating migration mayhem in a deprecated world
Db2 has grown a lot over the years and, partly due to this, it carries around a ton of old baggage. It is definitely the right time to start crawling through the Db2 catalog and review any and all of the "deprecated" objects that are hanging around still nailed to their perches!

Exploit DB2's Log
Relational DBMS have a transaction log for recovery purposes in case of failure. However, the information stored in the log is also well suited for other purposes. Think of undoing bad transactions, data propagation, and auditing. The DB2 log is a potential gold mine if you know how to seamlessly filter and make complex log data usable. We will show you how the DB2 log is structured, what data DB2 stores in the log besides table contents, and how to find the information you are looking for.

FAQs


FAQ 1: I'm having trouble joining.
ANS 1: It's rare, but sometimes firewalls get in the way. For solutions, visit Citrix Firewalls

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.
