Copying large amounts of data in a DB2® for z/OS® environment can be a challenge in terms of resources, time and effort required. Add to that the complexity of performing SAP maintenance and upgrades with a small staff. This is what Bill Anani faced. Bill is the lead DB2 systems programmer at American International Group (AIG), a worldwide insurance organization that also provides retirement services in the United States.

Join us for this complimentary teleconference as Bill Anani shares how AIG simplified its upgrade process for SAP and DB2 for z/OS quickly, using very little CPU or I/O. He will share his methodology of copying data using both data sharing and non-data sharing environments. You’ll pick up valuable tips and techniques for any environment. You will also come away with a more thorough understanding of DB2 for z/OS and how to implement a cloning strategy that works for you.

Join us after the teleconference for a live question-and-answer session. This teleconference will also be available for replay after the event.
