Simplify and Speed Up Your Db2 for z/OS Data Copying and Movement
A webinar presented by Craig S. Mullins, Mullins Consulting Inc.
Just about everybody is aware of the phenomenal data growth that organizations are experiencing these days. More data is being generated and stored than ever before. But not all of that data is unique or even production data. An underlying phenomenon contributing to data growth that is sometimes ignored is the vast amount of data that is copied and moved throughout every organization.
Data is constantly on the move. From production systems to test systems, from one test system to another, and even from user to user. All of that data is required for multiple purposes, such as supporting transactional systems, mirroring production, reporting, performing analytics, for testing purposes, training, and more. And data is being refreshed and copied more frequently than ever before to support business requirements and changing technology needs such as agile development and DevOps.
How can your company support this myriad of data movement requirements without overworking your DBAs? What can be done to combat the sometimes excruciatingly long runtimes required to unload and load large tables using Db2 utilities? And let’s not forget that indexes and statistics need to be copied, too! Furthermore, nothing gets put on hold so that data can be copied, right? So how can test data management and data movement be automated to ensure that data is smoothly moved and refreshed even as application and database structure changes are made?
Attend this webinar to learn more about these issues and to for Craig’s insight on how to use BCV5 to automate, streamline, and speed up Db2 data movement based on his experiences using the tool in the field.
