Topic - IBM SQL and DB2 on IBM i

SQL & DB2 – is this just a wasted resource on your system?

SQL is more than just open query files on the green screen. Today, SQL on the IBM i rivals that of any other popular database on the market. The question is: “Are you leveraging it to help your business or is it a wasted resource on your system?” At the April MRMUG meeting we will learn how and where SQL can be used, see examples of SQL functions, and find out what to do to optimize performance. 

Our speaker is Steve Wallace from Brotherhood Mutual Insurance.

Steve Wallace is an IBM certified DB2 database administrator that has been working with numerous database management systems since 1999.

Please register before noon on Wednesday April 16, 2014

Our topic for the May 15 MRMUG meeting will be Internal vs. External Disk for Power systems.
