On Feb 1st, 2012, I gave a seminar on my experience working with IBM Optim Tool. This session was well attended;
In the presentation, I talked about my expriences with the product and the way we customised the tool for our needs. The most intriguing thing about IBM Optim tool is that how well it binds with the backend database. We used DB2 for zOS but I'm sure Optim is as well integrated good enough with other databases.
We were able to implement a comprehensive Archial and Purge Solution in less than 3 months. This is a tremendous achievement keeping in mind that everyday data archival was in the range of about 0.3 million rows!
