In many companies DB2 tuning is now more about reducing costs than about improving response times. Wise trade-offs require up-to-date knowledge of hardware prices on a common scale (CPU second, 1 GB of central storage per month, 1 GB of read cache per month, 1 GB of disk space per month).
The presentation suggests a cost model, which can be tailored to your environment. It also discusses the tuning areas that have the highest potential for cost reduction. Index improvement is covered in detail with numerous examples.
