Case study: Storebrand Foreword by Sal Vella; V.P., IBM DB2 Development:
Services Oriented Architectures (SOA) are an integral part of building an agile enterprise capable of making decisions quickly, and responding rapidly to new products and services opportunities, as well as to competitive threats. The explosive growth of XML data in businesses today across multiple industries has underscored the role of XML as the "fabric of Services Oriented Architectures" and the need to integrate XML data into enterprise information infrastructure.
DB2 9 (previously code-named “Viper”) enables an information-centric approach to service oriented architecture implementations, which rely upon the ability to access a myriad of data stored across multiple formats. With its dual pure XML data management and traditional relational data capability, DB2 9 delivers information as a service in SOA environments, connecting information on-the-fly, where you need it, and when you need it!
XML data requires the same coveted qualities of service that relational databases provide: high availability, reliability, protection, and performance. The pureXML™ technology in DB2 9 unlocks the latent potential of XML by providing simple efficient access to XML with the same levels of security, integrity, and resiliency taken for granted with relational data. With pureXML innovation in DB2 9, your organization can expect breakthrough increases in availability, speed, and versatility of your XML information, along with dramatically reduced development and administrative costs.
This IBM Redbook serves as an introduction to the hybrid XML data services in DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. It also provides data server professionals a fast start for using and exploring pureXML capabilities in DB2 9 and get them started with leveraging XML information for maximum return.
