Day in the life of a DBA

Make it better with Integrated Data Management solutions

This demo shows how Integrated Data Management solutions from IBM help one database administrator (DBA) respond quickly to a wide variety of requirements. The DBA uses DB2 Performance Expert and Extended Insight Feature to help diagnose complex performance problems quickly. With Optim Database Administrator, daily database administration tasks are simpler and less tedious, and database changes can be managed with less risk and greater auditability. Creating a right-sized test database is easy to do with Optim Test Data Management, even when private data needs to be unidentified. Finally, the DBA demonstrates how a colleague can use Optim High Performance Unload to meet a requirement to migrate large quantities of data up to 10 times faster.
