European SQLAdria Seminar – Šibenik 2019 New way of accessing your enterprise data

Today, organizations face a proliferation of data types – different formats, structures, multiple platforms – growing in volumes and needing to be integrated faster to deliver the real-time insight required by business leaders. It’s a daunting challenge complicated by aging tools and outdated data architecture. But what if all your enterprise data could be accessed through a single API, use a single metadata model or catalogue, and utilize a single security model ? What about accessing such data with IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator ? You can add data from almost everywhere outside of Db2 for z/OS to the accelerator and access this data together. It doesn’t apply to relational data structures only, but also to non-relational data such as SMF records, IMS DBs or VSAM data sets to name only a few. This allows organizations to leverage data sources together that were never designed to be leveraged together in the first place. This session looks into existing capabilities, shares an update of latest enhancements and provides an outlook into the future
