Frank Fillmore will be delivering a session on IDAA use cases at the IBM Insight Conference in Las Vegas (formerly IOD) on Tuesday, October 28th, from 10am-11am.

The IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator (IDAA) speeds analytic queries that currently run on DB2 for z/OS.

IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator can:

  • Help with operational data store reconsolidation on IBM System z.
  • Reduce extract, transform and load (ETL) costs and latency to make OLTP data available for analysis faster and less expensively.
  • Speed up batch reporting and offload System z processor consumption.
  • Archive original data by using the high performance storage saver (HPSS).
  • Enable analysis of VSAM and Information Management System (IMS) data along with DB2 for z/OS by using the DB2 Analytics Accelerator Loader.

In Frank’s┬ásession, attendees will learn about these functions and more, and gain an understanding of possible, interesting, and valuable IDAA use cases.

I hope we will see you there!
