Everyone is talking about e-books and even more e-reading devices have been announced and are waiting for your books to be loaded! Where does IBM stand in all of this?
Personally I think that IBM has been at the leading edge of having e-books available about our products and technologies. Even if you don't read them, surely you've heard of IBM Redbooks. For more than 40 years, IBM has been creating "how to" books to help you build your skills on our products and technolgies. There are half a million IBM Redbooks downloaded every year! IBM Redbooks are available to you for FREE in PDF format. Read these books on your computer, laptop or any device that will accept PDF documents.
Beyond the IBM Redbooks, you can find product documentation for DB2 products in PDF format as well as integrated within the product through online help. Again, as these are PDF files, read them on any device that allows PDFs.
IBM Press has published a wide variety of books that can be purchased in the traditional book format, Kindle format, PDF format, or through online book engines such as Safari Books Online and Books 24x7. If you are an employee with IBM, you automatically have access to all the books available on Books 24x7. If you are a student at a University, you may also have access to Books 24x7. Check with your administrator.
A series of books "For the community by the community" are available from developerWorks. These books are available for you to download for free, in PDF format. Titles in this series are being added all the time... and good news for who want translated editions. The books are being translated by members of the community as well, so you may find a translation that is suitable for you.
If you are looking for books specifically for DB2 pureXML, check out the list of free ebooks that are available for you to download in PDF format.
If you're not sure yet if you want to read books online or via a device, give it a try to see what you think. You can download chapters from various Web 2.0 and Social Media books to see if you like it or not.
Many of the publishers who I work with are presenting e-book strategies to me for future publications. The idea is that the books will be available immediatly in an online format of some kind, but the books are only printed when they are requested / purchased by a reader. This means that the book can be more easily updated when necessary and the publisher will not have a warehouse full of printed books. This makes sense, doesn't it?
Do readers want online books exclusively? I don't think so, yet. Perhaps there will always be a need for a printed book... and if you could see my desk, you'd know immediately that I am a big fan of printed books! I got a Kindle for Christmas, so I've started to see the benefits of reading on such a device. And really, Kindle is just the beginning. Everywhere you look there are different devices being made available: Sony, Nook, iPad, apps on iPhones and Blackberries, etc. I can't keep up with all the new devices, but I found this website that lists many that I've never even heard of! So, take a look if you are interested.
All of this combined tells me IBM is very into this ebook trend AND that 2010 is the Year of the e-Book... at least in terms of supply... so we'll have to wait to see if you the readers buy into the ebook technologies.
If you want to add to this discussion, take a look at this group that I've created on ChannelDB2.com: Electronic Books.
Just published by IBM Press:
Unfortunately Tony will not be at IBM Insights this year, so you won’t get a chance to get him to sign his latest book. His book, however, will be at the conference, and it looks like Tony has another best seller on his hands!
About the book:
Most enterprises recognize the crucial importance of effective information governance. However, few are satisfied with the value of their efforts to date. Information governance is difficult because it is a pervasive function, touching multiple processes, systems, and stakeholders. Fortunately, there are best practices that work. Now, a leading expert in the field offers a complete, step-by-step guide to successfully governing information in your organization.
Using case studies and hands-on activities, Anthony Giordano fully illuminates the “who, what, how, and when” of information governance. He explains how core governance components link with other enterprise information management disciplines, and provides workable “job descriptions” for each project participant.
Tony helps you successfully integrate key data stewardship processes as you develop large-scale applications and Master Data Management (MDM) environments. Then, once you’ve deployed an information asset, he shows how to consistently get reliable regulatory and financial information from it.
Performing Information Governance will be indispensable to CIOs and Chief Data Officers…data quality, metadata, and MDM specialists…anyone responsible for making information governance work.

IBM's Information on Demand (IOD) Conference took place in
My purpose at the conference was to sell books to attendees, but I wasn't able to arrange for a bookseller to set up shop. I'm not able to sell books myself so I promoted both electronic books and buying books directly from the publisher.
Safari Books Online joined me as they provide one of the available options for electronic books. Erin and Martin from Safari were giving demonstrations of their system to attendees. We gave out bookmarks that promoted a free trial subscription for people to try Safari. The URL is: http://safaribooksonline.com/requesttrial/ (Feel free to give it a try!) IBM has a corporate license to Books 24x7 which provides a similar service, but there are fewer technical books than are available via Safari Books Online.
The books we've published through IBM Press, MC Press, Apress, and Packt can be purchased in the traditional print format, Kindle format, PDF format, or through online book engines such as Safari Books Online and Books 24x7. Although owning a book reading device is nice, it isn't necessary. There are apps that run on smart phones and computers to optimize the online reading experience.
I brought my Kindle to the conference to show people technical content on this device. I don't think that it is the best option for technical books. I've downloaded all the readers and find the PC eReaders to be very good. I suspect that iPads will be suitable, but have not been able to use one yet.
The publishers who I work with sent me a sample copy of each book I requested. I likely had 50 books in total. These were merely for display so the attendees could browse through the books and to see the range of tit

Magnus brought copies of his book to the conference and sold nearly 100 copies for cash.
Mario Godinez, Eberhard Hechler, Klaus Koenig, Steve Lockwood,
Authors of Book: The Art of Enterprise Information Architecture
IBM purchased 300 copies of this book to be given to qualified attendees. Attendees needed to attend a session hosted by one of the authors or to visit the InfoSphere Demo Room. The event was very successful and all the books were claimed in about an hour.
I arranged to have a number of the previously published flashbooks available to hand out. These included:
New Intelligence for a Smarter Planet – Driving Business Innovation with IBM Analytic Solutions
Break free with DB2 9.7: A Tour of Cost-Slashing New Features
Information on Demand for Dummies, 2nd edition
SAP DBA Cockpit - Flight Plans for DB2 LUW Administrator
I had about 50 copies of each title and they were very well received. Some of the books were moved to the Education Zone to attract / reward people who visited.
I was able to meet with many authors and potential authors! This networking has resulted in more books in the pipeline. I'll have more information on the tit

Since this was the first time showcasing books at a conference rather than selling them, I learned a few things that I'd like to improve for future events:
Since I had books from 5 or 6 different publishers, it was difficult for me to give one URL for people to go to for our books. Our bookstore website needs to be redesigned and updated to include all the relevant books in both electronic and printed format.
I need a piece of collateral that can highlight the messages we can give to the customer about the book strategy. This can be a flyer, postcard, or bookmark.
IBM Innovate 2013 is a Technical Summit that provides insights that you need to stay ahead..... and it takes place June 2 - 6 in Orlando Florida.
This Summit offers over 450 outcome-driven sessions, including quite a few that are focused on the ever popular Big Data area. If you are attending the conference, you should consider attending these Big Data sessions:
BD-1962 : Agility in a Relational Database World - Dynamic Schema with JSON and DB2
Speaker: William Bireley, IBM
Today's mobile, social, and analytic applications demand agility, speed, and scalability using a flexible data model. This partly explains the huge interest in NoSQL databases. Modern applications frequently need to add, drop, or modify fields in the data store without administrator involvement. Change management processes associated with relational databases can be an impediment to continuous integration processes. A popular NoSQL approach is the use of a "document database", where documents are stored with a flexible format, such as JSON. Many existing NoSQL solutions offer these advantages, but sacrifice "ACID" characteristics of a traditional database, such as transaction control, recover-ability, and other aspects taken for granted in DB2. Using DB2 as a JSON document store provides the best of both worlds. This session describes a solution that does exactly that. The session also includes a live demo showing the power and flexibility of this JSON over DB2 solution.
BD-2501 : Big Data Predictive Analytics
Speaker: Mike McRoberts, IBM
Learn about the new Big Data feature in IBM SPSS Modeler and how to automate and integrate this capability into your application. You don't have to worry about Map/Reduce programming to take advantage of predictive analytics on Big Data.
SC-2486 : Cloud and DevOps: Big Demands, Big Iron
Speakers: Phil Murphy, Forrester; Hayden Lindsey, IBM
DevOps is changing how software is delivered, but how does it fit into your shop? The demands of delivering applications across mobile, social, big data, and cloud technologies are driving development teams to use many different types of technology. Furthermore, Agile methodologies are enabling development teams to deliver usable application features on quicker schedules. This is now happening for application development on all platforms, in private datacenters and public clouds. Learn how your organization measures up as Phil Murphy, VP and Research Director with Forrester Research, presents fresh research on the impact of these technology trends on IT organizations. Listen as Hayden Lindsey, IBM VP and Distinguished Engineer, discusses how software from IBM Rational brings agility to all of your development environments, from mobile apps to mainframe environments.
CLD-2185 : Developing in the Cloud? Turning Challenges into Opportunities
Speaker: Todd Moore, IBM
Address the increasing challenges of meeting the requirements of your customers. Reduce the pressures on development to deploy new services. Address the challenges by leveraging technologies that can develop once and deploy anywhere. Maximize the power of the cloud, while streamlining your development processes to include Mobile, Social, Big Data, and Business Analytics. Understand how OpenStack is providing flexibility in architecting your cloud. Learn how OSLC and TOSCA are integral to simplifying and accelerating your development processes. Todd Moore of IBM and Jay Snyder of Aetna Insurance will take you through their experiences on how they enabled their developer community to leverage these leading technologies to effectively deliver interoperable solutions. By the end of the session, you will understand how to take your team's development processes to the next level and be more responsive in meeting the needs of your customers.
BD-2498 : InfoSphere BigInsights Programming Overview
Speaker: Anshul Dawra, IBM
Get the most from your Big Data by developing new applications. We'll cover the popular programming styles for Big Data, including Map-Reduce, HBase, SQL and Hive, Jaql, Pig, and Text Analytics. We'll show how to create new applications from spreadsheets and display the results graphically. Learn how developers and end users can leverage big data with simple yet powerful programming styles.
BD-2499 : InfoSphere Streams Programming Overview
Speaker: Pete Nicholls, IBM
Big Data is everywhere we look. In late 2012, IBM conducted an audited benchmark illustrating how IBM Platform Symphony delivered a dramatic 7.3 times performance gain across a range of representative Hadoop MapReduce workloads. While the performance results are compelling, for many organizations the real value lies in associated opportunities for cost savings that arise from greater efficiency and resource sharing on a multi-tenant grid infrastructure. In this session, we will explain the benchmarks and results, detail the technologies that enabled the results, and discuss how organizations can take advantage of low-latency scheduling and new file system technologies to achieve dramatic efficiency improvements in their own Big Data projects. IBM will also unveil a total cost of ownership calculator that can help organizations estimate cost savings opportunities for a variety of distributed computing workloads including Hadoop MapReduce.
BD-2510 : Lightning fast access to Data with IBM Caching
Speaker: Brian Martin, IBM
Traditionally, data is placed in storage and when needed, accessed and acted upon in memory. This results in a natural bottleneck that impacts performance. As data volumes increase, the time required to access and analyze grows and becomes cumbersome. Complex calculation can't be accomplished in real time. With in-memory computing, we can better understand how data is shaped and stored. In this session, we will discuss how in-memory data grids like WXS & XC10 mark an inflection point for enterprise applications, especially with big data. Real-time information provides decision makers with insights not previously available. The session will cover how large data sets can be made available and accessed near-instantaneously.
BD-2511 : Test Data Management in the New Era of Computing
Speaker: Swati Moran, IBM
Big data means high volume, variety, velocity and veracity data. Most development and testing organizations aren't prepared to develop and test applications in this high pressure environment. Clients demand access and high availability. In the rush to meet growing client needs and build applications to support the speed of business, testing becomes even more critical. This session will explore best practices for test data management in the software development lifecycle to satisfy the demands of big data, while protecting sensitive data. In addition, it will explain how to speed delivery of big data applications while reducing cost by enabling testers and developers to access and refresh test data.
BD-2049 : Three Steps for Securing Big Data Environments - Why Big Data Doesn't Have to Mean Big Security Challenges
Speaker: Kimberly Madia, IBM
The ability to harness big data has opened the door for world-wide collaboration in real time. Organizations are able to process data on an extreme scale to derive maximum value. However, as big data environments ingest more data, organizations will face significant risks and threats to the repositories containing this data. Failure to ensure data security reduces confidence in decision making. Ironically, organizations are generating more data now as compared to any other point in history, and yet they don't understand how to protect it. In this session, we will discuss three steps to improve security in big data environments.

Times are changing rapidly especially in the book market. I used to love going to the bookstore to browse and would end up with a large bag full of beautiful books! I still do that sometimes, but now I’m more likely to order technical books online, fiction for my kindle, and business books in audio format.
I’m often recommending books for people to purchase, and today I was asked where do I recommend that people buy their books. Here’s my answer.
I normally put an amazon.com link for the books that I promote. I do this mainly because amazon.com is by far the most well known book buying site around the world. Many countries have their own amazon site, so if you’re like me and live in one of those countries, I would suspect that you’d see the title and comments on the amazon.com link but make the purchase on your country site, such as amazon.ca. I also point to amazon because of their prices. I like that they often have 37% discounts on books.
I work directly with many publishers and when they have special sales on their books, I will often write a blog entry about the sale. Here are a few examples:
IBM Press - has offered a discount code – IBMEXPERIENCE – that will save you 35% at the online checkout.
MC Press – has tabs for their “sale” books: Bargain Books, Close-Outs and Scratch & Dents
If you prefer digital books, you have quite a bit of choice as well. All of the publishers offer ebooks for sale on their sites, but also make Kindle versions available on amazon.com as well. ebooks and Kindle versions can be run on many different devices through reader applications. I occasionally use a Kindle reader on my laptop to read technical books. I find the Kindle reader app makes book content more pleasant to read than simply reading a PDF version of a book.
I should use libraries more often, but I haven’t been able to fit it into my lifestyle yet. If you are a library user, you have a wide variety of choice and can even borrow audio and electronic versions of books that exist.
Another library option includes Digital Libraries such as Books 24x7, Safari, and PacktLib. IBMers have a free subscription to Books 24x7, so I frequently browse through those books. My local library membership offers a subscription to Safari Books Online. I haven’t used this service yet, but I have used Safari before. The three digital libraries are similar, but they contain a different collection of books. If you have the full membership of a digital library, you’ll also be able to download the books to your reading devices as well.
I’d like to hear from you as to where you buy your books. Are you OK that I normally point to amazon.com? Where do you learn about books? Blogs like mine, twitter, IBM websites, amazon? Let me know!
PS… If you want to stay on top of the latest books and the sales as they are announced, be sure to follow my blog.
DB2 Health Advisor Service (HAS) is a proactive/reactive SaaS (support as a software service) technology that is non-intrusive and utilizes up to date analytics from subject matter experts across DB2. The main goal of the service is to leverage the expertise and knowledge back at IBM to productively avoid problems, reduce the bar of adoption, lower total cost of ownership and return on investment when using DB2. It is based on best practices and customer knowledge database.
The service collects information about the customer’s DB2 operating environment and sends it back to IBM where it is automatically processed by analysis engine. DB2 HAS analytics are based on DB2 best practices gleaned over many years as well as knowledge of 1000’s of similar configurations. A report is then generated based on the comparison that indicates what system parameters are healthy and which should have a second look. Recommendations are also provided. The report is then sent back to the customers via the email they provided at the command line when they requested the health check.
If you are on DB2 v9.7 FP1, the db2has tool is already available as a part of DB2 installation. If you are on an earlier DB2 release/fixpack, the db2has tool is available from an official IBM download website: https://www.ibm.com/services/forms/preLogin.do?source=swg-beta-db2hasvc .
(You will need to login using your IBM ID and follow the appropriate instructions to download the data collector. )
Here's some information about db2has:
DB2 Health Advisor Service data collector (db2has) gathers information about a DB2 instance, its databases, and its operating environment. The db2has tool will generate a zip file (under ~/sqllib/db2hasdir) that contains an XML file which is the contents of the scan.
- There is no installation required for the tool. For a download version, on DPF systems only it is recommended to copy the db2has executable to the sqllib/adm directory to make sure that the executable can be run from all partitions.
- Have your company's IBM Customer Number (ICN) ready, as this is a required parameter entry when using the db2has tool. If you do not currently have an ICN, contact IBM Software Support.
- Using the -send option will FTP the compressed file to IBM. Otherwise, send the compressed file here ftp://email@example.com:21/toibm/im using your FTP client. If using FTP is not an option (e.g., due to a firewall restrictions) please send compressed file as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- For detailed information about the db2has tool, use the "db2has -help all" command or "db2has -help examples" to see other examples.
For convenience, here is a sample command with a recommended set of options (simply replace the fake information as appropriate):
Please review the DB2 HAS report that you receive and evaluate the effect of the report's recommendations by first implementing them in your test environment. If you have any questions, comments, feature requests or if would like to influence the DB2 HAS direction please send an email to email@example.com.
If you have any questions, comments, feature requests or if would like to influence the DB2 HAS direction please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Today was the fourth and final show of the first round of the DB2’s Got Talent Competition. If you didn’t participate live, I strongly encourage you to watch the replay. We had 7 contestants as well as an extra special presentation from judge Klaas Brant. The caliber of the presentations today blew me away. We judges had a very hard time selecting 3 to move on and were hoping we could save a few more. But alas, 3 was our max. Here’s how it played out.
Contestant 1 – Brian
Brian used a physical health analogy for his presentation and it worked out really well. Good thing I was on mute as I was laughing pretty hard at some of the graphics. In reality, indexes can get very out of shape, but there are ways to recognize this, monitor their health, speed them up, and ultimately make them into top physical form. The judges found the presentation to be very professional, interesting and easy to follow. If you’re into twitter, you can follow Brian at fairchild_db2. Also, he blogs at http://bit.ly/yGpae2 . Check it out if you’re interested.
Contestant 2 – Ember
Testing Your Recovery Strategy
As Ember said at the beginning of her presentation, this isn’t a very sexy topic. But as Scott said at the end, the way she presented it made the topic kind of sexy! OK, past the crazy talk, Ember chose to present the very valuable topic of being prepared. If you don’t fully test your recovery strategy, you may find yourself in hot water when you actually need to use it. Her tips were very insightful. Her presentation was interesting, very well laid out, and professional. One of the reasons Ember was so high on our list is because she chose a topic that cannot be found in the manuals. She came up with these tips from personal experience and a lot of hard work. Ember also tweets ember_crooks & blogs http://db2commerce.com/.
Contestant 3 – Mark
DB2 LUW Workload Management – Using Role-based Workload Management to Meet your Company’s Performance Goals
Mark chose a very tough topic and made it understandable. He started with showing how to identify the roles all the way to adding the UserIDs to the workload. One of the judges commented that this was a very adventurous topic and it was so well liked because we don’t often have tips related to this area.
Contestant 4 – Rajib
Debug High CPU Situations with DB2
Rajib works in the support area, so this is a topic that he knows very well, from experience with many customers. Rajib gave several decision trees to help you make the correct choice when you discover your CPU spiking. Rajib mentioned that he had more details in a follow on presentation that maybe we’ll hear one day. The one thing that Rajib could have done better right from the beginning is to put his presentation into Play mode. He had it in Edit mode so we could see less of the presentation than we wanted to see. The decision trees would have been much easier to read had it been in Play mode. Also, Rajib mentioned a perl script that he uses but we didn’t see the details. Rajib will find a home for his perl script so that we can all benefit.
Contestant 5 – Jean
DebReal 24x7 Enhancement: No downtime, no slowdowns, no planned outages, no suspending traffic, simplifies & expedites blackout, any time – day or night
Jean worked with her colleague Chuck to create this presentation, but she presented on her own. I found it to be a rather complex topic but with her examples, it helped make it understandable. Jean did a wonderful job of presenting, even though she said she was nervous. Jean, it didn’t show!
Contestant 6 – Sameer
Sameer’s been here before and I can tell you that his presentations are improving. Not a single typo this time around and the slides were well organized with a problem, questions a person would ask about the problem and ways to resolve the problems. Sameer’s slides said the presentation was based on personal experience, but during a discussion with the judges, he admitted that he made it up. It was a good choice for a topic as this isn’t discussed or documented in many places. Sameer tweets https://twitter.com/#!/sameerkasi200x and blogs: http://db2performance.blogspot.com/ .
Contestant 7 – Jonathan
DB2 LUW Load from Cursor
There are many load options and Jonathan wisely chose one to discuss so that he could finish his presentation on time. Another good presentation that was well laid out and easy to follow. The best slide was the last one where Jonathan gave a summary of the Load / Import options and under which conditions they should be used. One of the judges commented that many of his customers were using this option.
Extra Special Presentation – Klaas
DB2 LUW Prefect IO Configuration
This was a real presentation and a good one, at that. Klaas gave this primarily to show the contestants a well organized presentation, that is interesting and informative. If you are moving on, or if you simply want to improve your presentation skills, take a look at what Klaas did to get some ideas. The first thing I noticed and mentioned on the show is how appealing graphics are. I’m not sure if I would have said that before, but after today’s amazing 8 presentations I can say that the ones that captured my attention to the fullest were the ones that had graphics. And not complex graphics, rather simple ones that are make a connection to the technical material being discussed. Here’s a summary of the tips we gave over the past month:
The judges, Martin Hubel, Klaas Brant, and myself chose Ember, Brian and Jean to move onto the next round based on the relevance / uniqueness of their topic and the quality of their presentations. These three will join Richard, Douglas, Yonghang, Rodolpho, Kingo, Kholi, and Elder.
Congratulations to you all. We’re looking forward to more quality presentations from each of you.
Do you agree with our choices? So far, the survey selections have matched the judge’s selections. If you watch the replay, you’ll be able to fill in a survey to let us know if there is someone else who should also move on. Listen for the great tips and for advice on improving your presentation skills.
That’s it for the contestant presentations. March is reserved for the finals where those who have moved on will present a second time and the listeners can choose the winner rather than the judges. There are only 3 shows in March: 2, 16, and 30. If you get reminders for March 9 and 23, please ignore these reminders.
Thanks to host Scott Hayes for this opportunity for me as a judge and for the contestants for helping them build technical presentation skills that are so valuable.
For details on the prizes for this competition… and a summary of last year’s event… see my blog entry: http://ibm.co/AnZxb4
PS… If you are in the NY area, make sure you look into attending the DB2 Symposium that is taking place March 28-30 in this area. See DB2 Symposium for details. Today a special discount was announced: If you book by March 1, use the promo code DBI12A1 to get a 20% discount.
PSS…. If any other contestants tweet or blog, let me know and I’ll publicize you as well!
Today’s DB2Night Show featured the top 10 contestants who were chosen by the judges in February. They each had four minutes to impress the audience and replay listeners. That’s correct. This time the judges are giving feedback, but are not choosing the best competitor. I must say that I’m very glad I’m not choosing the best. If you were in the audience today or if you listen to the replay, you’ll see what I mean: All presenters were incredible Lots of learning happening today!
Here’s a summary:
The Fragmentation of DBADM
Noticed in DB2 9.7. DBADM is still a superuser of sorts, but there are granularities. SECADM and DATAACCESS authorities were added. Great presentation on the permissions for each user type. Great information presented in an educational fashion. AND, she finished in time.
Simple Steps for Substantially Reducing report execution time in a Data Warehouse Environment.
Great graphics, very clear description of the problem and how to fix it.
How to Configure an Efficient HA and DR on DB2 10.1
I like that the tradeoffs slide: puts the problem in perspective. Clear description of the solution. Seems like this could be a common problem that needs to be solved: good reasons to upgrade to V10!
Getting Siblings to Talk - Federating DB2 LUW and DB2 for i
Synchronized DB2 LUW on AIX to their legacy iseries system. Very good description on Federation and how it is set up.
My New Moving Vehicle DB2MOVE "With more POWER and Less Gas"
Lots of situations when you'd use DB2MOVE. Good description on what the command does, its options, actions and how to use them.
How do you work with Application Development to Ensure Performance
What do you do when performance problems arises after new features are added? Problem well defined and quantitative results shown.
SQL Performance Tuning using MQT Part 2
Interesting scenario created to define problem and how it was analyzed and solved using MQT. And... he spelled cheque correctly! Way to go!
Temporal Data Management in DB2 for z/OS
Good definitions and contrast between snapshot and temporal. Lots of details in the scenario that shows the problem and how it is solved. The topic was too large to complete in time.
DML = Data Manipulation Scanner. Great presentation style. I like how different approaches were discussed with pros & cons. Good use of examples and sample code.
The 8 Selects that All DBAs Want to Have
Unfortunately Juliano did not show up today. So without Juliano, we had 9 great presentations today.
Who was the best? Listen to the replay and VOTE. Remember if you complete the survey at the end of the replay, you’ll have a chance to win an amazon.com gift certificate.
Thanks to all the presenters for your hard work on creating these great presentations.

Have you seen Leon's recent blog entry?
My last post about the DB2Night Show was in error... I said that Mark Wilding was the special guest this week... but it's actually Mike Winer! I'm sure Mark will be rescheduled for a future show.
So, what's Mike Winer going to talk about? I was a recent guest at his new cottage, but I'm sure that topic won't come up! Instead, he's talking about DB2 Locking. Mike was at the IDUG Tampa conference and at last week's CCDB2UG, so if you missed those talks, you'll be able to catch up in this special 90 minute webinar with Scott Hayes.
Educate - Inform - Entertain ...
The DB2Night Show Episode #22
As usual it’s been a very productive year for the ITSO who publish IBM Redbooks. Here is a list of 30 titles that were released for the Information Management area in 2010. Notice that the ITSO allows you to give reader feedback and ratings for these books. If you like a book, make sure you leave a comment. Word of mouth feedback is impressively influential.
This one was handed out in printed format at the IOD conference, and it proved to be extremely popular.
Looking for more e-books:
DB2 on Campus series of ebooks - 7 titles published, more coming. Free!
I have two upcoming webinars to tell you about today and hope that you can make one or both of them!
First, the second season of the DB2Night Show starts this Friday, August 6, 2010. This kickoff episode is special in that it is 90 minutes in length and Scott will be joined by my two good friends Serge Rielau and Dwaine Snow.
Together they will give us updates on all the ways that IBM is making it easy to choose DB2 LUW. If you are a current user of Oracle or Sybase, you really don’t want to miss this show.
Season 1 ended up with 23 shows and if you missed them, come and listen to the replays. I was a guest on one of the shows and had much fun with Scott!
View the upcoming shows and register here: DB2Night Show Website.
Second, the DB2 Database professional bloggers are hosting a free 60-minute virtual session for our the community. The best part is ... YOU GET TO CHOOSE THE TOPIC! Yes, that's right. This virtual session will be on a topic of your choice. Are you interested in an overview of the technical advantages of DB2 over Oracle? Want to know more about DB2 pureScale? Maybe you'd like tips on how to migrate an existing Oracle application to a DB2 application? Whatever your topic(s) of interest, post a comment and let me know. If you're new to DB2, this is a great opportunity for you to become familiar with DB2.
Nominate a topic here: DB2 Database Professional Blog
By the way, this is a good blog to “follow”.
Another great show. Five more educational and entertaining presentations. What an excellent finale. You have two weeks to watch the replay and to vote for your favourite. Remember that the overall winner gets a free pass to an upcoming IDUG conference! The winner will be revealed on the next DB2Night Show, Friday, April 8.
Let me tell you about the presenters today:
Norberto – From DBA to DBA: Tips to Make your Life Easier
Another great presentation from Norberto, filled with amazing tips that will help any DBA. Luckily for us, Norberto has started to blog about his tips and experiences. I predict that you’ll want to follow his blog: Insights on DB2 LUW database admin, programming and more
Momi – Pressure Makes Diamonds
Momi’s presentation encourages DBAs to practice and prepare for possible problem areas that can cause a DBA to be under enormous pressure. Good advice in terms of preparing for a recovery after a disaster and more. Momi’s wise tips can also be found in a blog: B-Advised DB2 Blog
JB – CIO – Best Practices
Many of us, including me, thought that CIO was Chief Information Officer, but in the context of JB’s presentation it means Concurrent I/O. As usual JB covered the topic very thoroughly and very convincingly. I don’t think that JB has a blog, but don’t worry, I’m hoping to turn her into an author so she can share her talent of explaining complex topics with everyone.
Mary – How the DB2 Load Utility is Like Green Eggs & Ham
Mary is also an amazing presenter and is a pro at making topics very interesting with appropriate comparisons to popular interests. In this case, she encourages people to try something new, like was done in the Dr. Suess book “Green Eggs & Ham”. She encourages you to use named pipes to load data. Mary is a former Oracle user and has discovered the power of DB2 and has become a huge fan. I couldn’t find a blog for Mary… but she’d be good at it!
Thiru - Data
Thiru dug deep and found another command that is not very well known but is very useful. This time he taught us about using DB2cat. I also couldn’t find a blog for Thiru, but I do know that he attended the DB2 Symposium in Dallas earlier this week, so hopefully he’ll be active in local DB2 events in the future.
We judges, Martin Hubel, Klaas Brant, and myself had a very tough time deciding which of the bottom two presenters we were going to keep. There were many conversations going on between the judges. Then Scott did the poll and found that the audience was pretty split as well. In the end we chose Thiru. We really wanted to keep both, but needed to follow the rules. This ends Mary’s amazing run and anyone who saw her presentations over the past couple of months will agree with me that Mary will do very well at anything she chooses to do!
Once again 100% of the audience said that they learned something new that would be helpful in their job! What a big win/win experience this has been: audience is learning & contestants are fine tuning their presentation skills.
Please watch or re-watch the shows from the past 4-8 weeks and vote for one of the last remaining contestants to help us choose the overall winner. My sincere thanks to Scott Hayes for creating this entertaining and educational format for learning and training.
Another great tweetchat on the hashtag #bigdatamgmt! Here are the results:
625 tweets, 157 users, 153,849 reach, 1,849,624 impressions
And.. we expect traffic for the rest of the day, so these stats may increase!
Once again, we had an active group of experts leading the discussion and were very pleased at the responses from other attendees. Here is a summary of the discussion:
Q1 Which enterprise initiatives require mobile access to bigdata?
craigmullins A1: Marketing and sales initiatives are ripe areas for mobile bigdata support
craigmullins A1: But they are not the only ones: retail, healthcare, finance, manufacturing, etc. etc.
BigDataAlex A1:advertising, marketing, field services, law enforcement, land management, infrastructure management, all require mobility
cristianmolaro A1: almost any enterprise initiative could benefit from bigdata in a "small" mobile package...
craigmullins A1: @cristianmolaro ...not just from but also to the portable bigdata consumer
susvis A1 - Customer support seems like a must have on mobile
Natasha_D_G A1: Sales & service depts. need customer insight at right time, at right place which may be on road
jeffreyfkelly A1 don't forget social & mobile closely linked - consumer creating data via social apps on mobile devices - worlds collide!
TheSocialPitt A1 Some automakers are doing interesting things with mobile bigdata
cristianmolaro A1: the challenge is to get useful information from a "portable" bigdata mobile source of information
jameskobielus A1: Any enterprise decision automation initiative supporting mobile employees with analytic-powered apps bigdata
craigmullins A1: Avoiding a siloed implementation of mobile bigdata + cloud is important
jeffreyfkelly A1 failure to take mobile data into account in marketing, you're missing possibly most important data related to consumer
furrier consumer hyperscale ex: Facebook =10.8% of all time spent on the Internet; 150 million+ desktop visitors, 97 million mobile
Natasha_D_G A1: Smart orgs empower their mobile customer facing teams w/ data access bigdata
craigmullins: A1: If you think about it, mobile bigdata + cloud are all part of the same problem (…and solution)
BigDataAlex A1: Yes, CraigMullins - see massive convergence between big data, mobility and cloud - could not agree enough.
furrier A1: Most IT pros we talk to call their projects "Mobile Desktop" as hyperscale come to IT mobile desktop will be 50/50 usage
BigDataAlex A1: combine mobility with location analytics - where you are is changing how we buy, how we work, and how we play
jeffreyfkelly A1 marketing for sure - consumers are mobile and so must marketing campaigns
jameskobielus @IBMbigdata A1: any app that aggregates & analyzes "ambient" data from smartphones & uses it to optimize mobile experience
BigDataAlex A1: the tablet will replace the PC in short order....
IBMbigdata Bold prediction? RT @BigDataAlex: A1: the tablet will replace the PC in short order....
Natasha_D_G I believe it! RT @BigDataAlex: A1: the tablet will replace the PC in short order....
AllanKoivo Agree, laptop sales will be impacted as well. RT @BigDataAlex: A1: the tablet will replace the PC in short order....
furrier A1: the mobile desktop is very hot; meaning moving desktop functionality to smartphone -software is key to this
craigmullins Outsell? Yes. Replace? Not so fast. --> @BigDataAlex: A1: the tablet will replace the PC in short order....
BigDataAlex Ok - outsell. But I will argue replacement is not far off for those under 20.
BigDataAlex A1:real estate is huge
furrier VMware is talking Big Fast Data in today's Pivotal Initiative spin out; IBM is already there; future is "learning data" imo
cristianmolaro A1: I can bring more computation power in my mobile device today than what was used for getting the man to the moon
zacharyjeans A1: The hydrogen bomb was created with roughly 5K of computing power.
doug_laney A1. Mobile = comparatively restricted platform for info delivery, but entirely new source of data collection.
TheSocialPitt @doug_laney Mobile is definitely extremely valuable as a bigdata source. You have any reports on this?
IBMbigdata MT @doug_laney: A1. Gartner: Mobile *access* to BigData a lot less interesting or valuable than as a source of bigdata.
Natasha_D_G Say more? RT @doug_laney: A1. Gartner believes Mobile *access* to BigData a lot less valuable than as a source of bigdata.
Q2 Which users, developers, stakeholders require mobile access to bigdata?
Natasha_D_G A2: In an always connected world of instant, we’re quickly moving to ALL needing mobile access to bigdata
BigDataAlex A2: Everyone is working toward access to mobile data - people want their data, all the time, everywhere, all the time.
craigmullins A2: There are 3.2 billion mobile subscribers today, which is almost half of the world's population.
Natasha_D_G Everyone! RT @craigmullins A2 Folks travel, work remotely, or need flexibility can most benefit from mobile access to bigdata
furrier A2: issue with mobile enterprise is security access with security top issue
Texiwill @furrier I think it is more about proving identity of the mobile user not the security access of the mobile device.
Natasha_D_G #CXO tribe in full force! RT @Empirix: A2 All who want to optimize the programs they are working need access to bigdata
cristianmolaro A2: who could not benefit from mobile access to bigdata? That could be easier to answer...
IBMbigdata Who wouldn't? RT @cristianmolaro: A2: who could not benefit from mobile access to bigdata? That could be easier to answer...
BigDataAlex A2: Big Data is being driven in large part by the explosion of mobile content and location information
Cristianmolaro A2: mobile + bigdata + global seem to go together very well nowadays
BigDataAlex A2: Verizon predicts that data will replace voice by 2015 in terms of data pipe traffic
Empirix A2 All who want to optimize the programs they are working need access to bigdata - and tools to help them utilize the data
jameskobielus A2: anybody who requires mobile access to decision support/automation powered by massive multi-structured data sets
jeffreyfkelly A2 mobile access to BigData doesn't need to be a full functional analytics but insights based on situation, location
Natasha_D_G Relevance RT @jeffreyfkelly: A2 mobile access to BigData doesn't need fully functional analytics but insights based on situation
IBMbigdata Must define RT @jeffreyfkelly: A2 mobile access to BigData doesn’t need full analytics but insights based on situation, ltn
jameskobielus A2: any data scientist or SME developing, collaboration, or tweaking statistical models from wherever
Q3 What security privacy risks of providing mobile access to big data apps?
craigmullins A3: Any time data flows over a network security + privacy must be managed
Natasha_D_G Indeed RT @craigmullins: A3: Any time data flows over a network security + privacy must be managed
furrier if hyperscale comes fast then mobile will displace faster the pacing item is enterprise hyperscale- scale out
Natasha_D_G A3: Orgs must be cognizant that mobile data access subject to same security risks of standard access
cristianmolaro A3: security is a major concern for many organizations. The technology to provide secure mobile access is already there
ted_friedman BigData as source creates new data governance challenges - trust models for data gen'd from mobile devices & people doing so.
BigDataAlex A3: Mobility security and privacy are huge - as we become more transparent we have to extend technical and ethical guidelines.
Natasha_D_G A3: Compliance nightmare > mobile access adds dimension of stolen/lost device & all org data in wrong hands
TheSocialPitt A3 I pity the IT guys dealing with BYOD!
Empirix Agree - but it's a reality that must be faced @TheSocialPitt: A3 I pity the IT guys dealing with #BYOD!
TheSocialPitt Absolutely. BYOD is here to stay, thankfully RT @empirix: Agree - but it's a reality that must be faced
cristianmolaro A3: mobile can be a security exposure if you do not take care of protecting what matters: your data!
zacharyjeans RememberBigData as we know it today, in #BigDataMgmt, will seem like small data, in a decade.
jeffreyfkelly @zacharyjeans very true - BigData is relative, need flexible platforms that scale with the times
TheSocialPitt That long?! ;-) RT @zacharyjeans: Remember BigData as we know it today, in #BigDataMgmt, will seem like small data, in a decade
gargaurav_ @IBMbigdata RT @zacharyjeans: Remember BigData as we know it today, in BigDataMgmt, will seem like small data, in a decade.
AllanKoivo A3: Mobile faces the same security issues all internet operations face
TheSocialPitt True - just more and more...mobile RT @allankoivo: A3: Mobile faces the same security issues all internet operations face
jameskobielus A3: same risks as with any mobile data access: theft, loss, eavedropping...but MORE data is at risk with bigdata
BigDataAlex A3: One of the biggest challenges we have is security on mobile devices and mobile social network-who is tired of being hacked?
Empirix A3 There are lots & many have yet to be discovered - you must use your best judgment when it comes to protecting sensitive info
cristianmolaro A3: is not the amount of data what matters, but the information that it carries or you can get from it
jeffreyfkelly @ted_friedman for sure - Mobile bigdata has BIG (pun intended) implications for data governance and security
Marcio_Saito Mobile: No fixed location, devices more accessible, more use of untrusted networks
cristianmolaro A3: some studies shows that most of the security breaches come from INSIDE organizations... mobile is not a risk per se
AllanKoivo All connected ops are a risk @cristianmolaro: A3: some studies show breaches come from INSIDE #mobile is not a risk
Natasha_D_G Good point RT @cristianmolaro: A3: some studies shows that most of the security breaches come from INSIDE org: Mobile is not a risk
jeffreyfkelly A3 @jameskobielus more data at risk and potentially more sensitive data
craigmullins A3 @cristianmolaro Mobile increases the risk by exposing the data over a network though, increasing external risk
craigmullins A3 @cristianmolaro So even if much risk is internal, mobile increases the risk
Natasha_D_G Adds a new layer RT @craigmullins: A3 @cristianmolaro So even if much risk is internal, mobile increases the risk
BigDataAlex A3: how do we anticipate the distributed cyber-attack and mobile devices - DDOS through mobility will be huge.
furrier A3: identity & authentication are key to mobile security - same old issue with new architecture & new software models
zacharyjeans The biggest risk to opening BigData is the 'Question'. BigData is meaningless w/ out good questions.
jameskobielus A3: privacy risks can be considerable, considering sheer comprehensiveness of personally identiable info in bigdata
IBMbigdata Great points about security concerns with #bigdatamgmt - BYOD, risk from within orgs, etc
cristianmolaro A3: mobile access to bigdata can be a security exposure, but also an opportunity for massive distributed data processing!
jeffreyfkelly A3 security, privacy risks are similar to traditional data and mobile, but stakes are higher w BigData
furrier A3: some MobileANGLE "65% of firms will invest in mobile; only 7% will invest in mobile device mgt for security/policy
TheSocialPitt Whoa! RT @furrier: A3: "65% of firms will invest in mobile; only 7% will invest in mobile device mgt for security/policy
NeerajT4 RT @padma8376 - a3) Bigdata apps may see a tad bit more scrutiny given the data they can access. But are we there?
