DB2 Analytics Accelerator project definition workshop
This interactive session will show how you can leverage System z, DB2 for z/OS, and DB2 Analytics Accelerator for your environment. You’ll learn how to perform ad hoc (dynamic SQL) query processing in your existing database stores, whether they already reside in DB2 for z/OS or in other data stores — and on mainframe or non-mainframe systems. Our examination will include reporting and real-time reporting systems, operational data stores, data warehouses, datamarts, and online transactional processing systems. We will also take time to analyze usage of these systems, both current and future, in support of business analytics, operational analytics, data mining, and predictive analytics.
