(Dave Beulke) Almost all application languages can use Db2 for z/OS. It surprises me when discussing the Db2 interfaces with management, architects, application managers and developers that they are not aware of wide variety, new languages and interfaces available to Db2 for z/OS and Db2 LUW.
(Pradeep Gohil, Julian Horn, Jenny He, Anthony Papageorgiou and Chris Poole) This IBM Redbooks publication covers the background and implementation of the IBM CICS asynchronous API, which is a simple, accessible API that is designed to enable CICS application developers to create efficient asynchron
(Troy L Coleman) This is the final post in my series on the evolution of compression with Db2 for z/OS. Read the previous posts covering Db2 8, Db2 9, Db2 10 and Db2 11.
(Dirk Schober) This tutorial is based on the Harlem Shake game that Romeo Kienzler developed and presented in his tutorial titled Create a fun, simple IoT accelerometer game.
(Scott) 100% of our audience learned something! Based on his popular IDUG Lisbon Db2 technical session, Mark covered an overview of BLU, examples of workload performance in Db2 V10.5, the benefits of Db2 V11 for some workloads, showed examples of BLU savings, and shared a few BLU gotchas. If you’re
(Noah Gift) In Part 1 of this series, you created the basic structure of a data science project and downloaded the data programmatically from GitHub, transforming it to be statistically analyzed with pandas.
(Craig S. Mullins) Db2 12 offers many performance improvements that can help you to speed up your applications. The Fast Insert algorithm, also called Insert Algorithm 2, is one such improvement, but you have to understand what it is and when it can be helpful.
(John Ghrist) One of the core assets of IBM’s entire Watson program is the ability to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to sort through masses of data to come up quickly with insights it could take a human mind much longer to perceive.
(Troy L Coleman) This is my fourth installment in a series detailing the history of Db2 compression. As is the case with all previous releases, the Db2 engine takes advantage of the z System hardware platform in Db2 Version 11 for z/OS. With Db2 11 and zEC12 hardware, compression overhead was reduce
(Matthias Nicola) Database services in the cloud are gaining increasing popularity for development, test, and production systems. One of the key technical challenges for cloud database adoption is fast and secure movement of large data volumes into the cloud.
