Session title: Let Me Make This Clear: Explaining Often-Misunderstood Db2 for z/OS Concepts and Facilities
Session abstract: Some aspects of Db2 for z/OS technology are plain as day; others, less so. Questions I get from Db2 users worldwide have highlighted for me things that a lot of folks – even very experienced Db2 people – tend to misunderstand. From APPLCOMPAT to contiguous buffer pools, from MAXDBAT to the IBM Data Server Driver package collection, in this session I’ll try to take folks from “Uh” to “Oh!”
