IBM® DB2® Tools for z/OS® deliver the capability to manage your SAP® ERP environment. DB2 Tools have made a positive difference in total cost of ownership for hundreds of customers worldwide. DB2 Tools support and exploit the most current versions of DB2 for z/OS, including DB2 10.
We have created three toolkits to extend this value to customers with SAP ERP applications running on a dedicated System z® machine. SAP customers who do not have a System z machine dedicated to SAP can benefit from the same capabilities the toolkits offer by utilizing the individual DB2 tools that comprise the toolkits.
The IBM DB2 Automation Toolkit for z/OS the SAP Edition (5655-W74)
This toolkit includes DB2 Automation Tool for z/OS, which advances the goal of enterprise autonomic computing and offers enhancements to ERP environments by providing capabilities such as automating the execution of COPY, REORG and MODIFY to provide better management of system resources.
The IBM DB2 Performance Toolkit for z/OS the SAP Edition (5697-M32)
This toolkit includes Tivoli OMEGAMON XE for DB2 Performance Expert and DB2 Query Monitor, designed to help keep DB2 running at peak levels even under heavy demand.
OMEGAMON XE for DB2 Performance Expert builds on IBM's expertise in autonomic computing by providing recommendations for system tuning, helping you to optimize performance.
DB2 Query Monitor provides autonomic capabilities such as proactive event notification and knowledge-based analysis of your SQL queries. In a SAP environment, DB2 Query Monitor captures alerts and shows performance data from multiple subsystems, helping DBAs to make better decisions and customize and tune SQL workloads to improve performance.
The IBM DB2 Administration Toolkit for z/OS the SAP Edition (5697-L30)
This toolkit includes DB2 Administration Tool and DB2 Object Comparison Tool, which work together to form a function-rich object management solution, providing quality assurance in an SAP ERP environment by comparing objects in SAP ERP database objects before they are transported from test to production.
DB2 Administration Tool reduces the complexity of managing and executing SAP-initiated database changes, which enables DBAs to make faster and more accurate decisions and provides important features for the administration of SAP systems. This tool provides easy, fast navigation of a DB2 catalog, allowing you to issue DB2 commands, execute utilities and examine schema structures.
DB2 Object Comparison Tool promotes quality assurance and database object integrity when objects are transported from test to production environments. This tool also helps to identify potential risks or long-running changes.
The Toolkits will operate on any hardware configuration that supports the required versions of DB2 and the applicable SAP ERP solution software.
These Toolkits are available for SAP ERP solution environments only and are offered exclusively to customers who have a System z machine dedicated to the SAP ERP environment.
SAP customers who do not have a System z machine dedicated to SAP can benefit from the same capabilities the Toolkits offer by utilizing the individual DB2 tools that comprise the toolkits.
The toolkits require DB2 Version 8 or later.
