As lead product manager for the Optim and Data Studio administration capabilities, I have been getting lots of questions about Data Studio ever since DB2 announced the deprecation of DB2 Control Center. I think some people haven’t gotten the word yet about the capabilities in Data Studio 2.2 that fill big gaps in the administrative capabilities that were available from Control Center. I did blog about some of these capabilities in a previous posting, but I’d like to now give you more information and a demo of some of these capabilities as well as to talk about how easy it is to add on more capabilities to help you get your job done.
To that end, I’d like to invite you to join me and a Data Studio architect, Manas Dadarkar, for a DB2 Chat with the Lab event on August 27th.
Looking forward, it’s true that as of today, Data Studio does not have all the capabilities that Control Center does, but I think it covers a large percentage of what most people need to do on a day to day basis. I recommend that you install Data Studio in one of its flavors (IDE or stand-alone) alongside Control Center so you can get familiar with using it. In the meantime, we’ll be working hard on our side to fill the gaps that affect most users.
