Five go to IDUG

It’s a full house! We’re delighted to announce that all five of Triton’s IDUG team have had their presentations accepted, four as primary speakers and one as a co-speaker.

Here’s what you have got to look forward to:

Award winning speaker, Julian Stuhler, will be taking a look at DevOps for Mainframe in his engaging presentation – Cloudy with a Chance of DevOps – A Survival Guide

Overview
As large enterprises continue their headlong rush into Cloud Computing and the DevOps movement continues to gather momentum, traditional DB2 job roles are being forced to adapt. This presentation will provide a brief overview of these two increasingly important IT trends, and examine how they are directly impacting DB2 developers, DBAs and systems programmers. From cloud-oriented application design to fully automating DB2 schema changes, some practical guidelines are offered to help current practitioners thrive in this brave new world.

 

Highly experienced DB2 for z/OS Consultant, James Gill will be walking us through a technical introduction to Configuring AT-TLS encryption of DDF traffic.

Overview
This presentation will cover concepts including; how to configure encryption on z/OS and how DB2 uses this and how to configure the clients that will use it.

 

Damir Wilder, one of our talented DB2 LUW and RemotedBA Consultants will be taking us through – SQL Tuning Basics: Simple Steps to SQL Sufficiency

Overview
The purpose of this presentation is to give an overview of methods used in everyday SQL tuning of transactional databases, when an SQL query or a Batch job is underperforming and a quick solution is required. Describe generally available tools in DB2 that can assist in the daily SQL tuning and/or SQL performance problem detection. Describe how to find out what is happening right now in a database. Describe how to gather historical performance data for a database. Describe how to analyse locking issues. Describe how to identify the hottest tables and SQL queries in a database. Show several real-life scenarios of poorly performing SQL and what was done to improve it.

 

Sticking with the DB2 LUW theme, experienced IDUG speaker, Mark Gillis will be giving a fascinating presentation entitled – HTAP : are we there yet?

Overview
From DB2 LUW V10.5 onwards, the focus has been very much on OLAP functionality: BLU acceleration and all that that entails. However, the days of segregating OLAP and OLTP have probably largely passed and customers want a single database to service all their requirements. Light speed response for OLTP transactions, equally performant OLAP functions to crunch massive volumes of data into digestible Business Intelligence with 24×7 availability for both are a demand, not a request. Can DB2 currently deliver this? If not, will it be able to in the near future? How close are we to the genuine Hybrid database?

 

In a twist to our regular presentations, Paul Stoker will be presenting alongside Lloyds Banking Group in their user presentation – Modernizing the Mainframe – Making DB2 z/OS Agile

Overview
Demands on DBAs for change is higher & faster than ever before. DBAs are coming under pressure to adopt to Agile Development, DevOps & RESTful APIs to name a few. Our presentation discusses our real-world experiences of leveraging DB2 z/OS tools to meet the needs of an increasingly agile engineering environment from a DBA perspective. We discuss decisions made & lessons learnt whilst designing & building applications using RESTful APIs, JSON, XML, Stored Procs & how we manage the associated artefacts.

This year’s IDUG conference will be held in beautiful Malta on 4th-8th November. There will be three expert panels on DB2 for z/OS, DB2 for LUW and application development. In over 100 hours of one-hour technical sessions, attendees will experience the latest in DB2 technologies, networking opportunities and top-notch technical content.
