It was just over a month ago that I posted the information about our new releases under the Optim name. Today we announce the z/OS versions of some of those products.
Optim Query Tuner is designed for single-query tuning, and Optim Query Workload Tuner provides both single query and workload tuning capability. Both offer seamless integration with Optim Development Studio. Optim Query Workload Tuner is a renamed enhancement of IBM Optimization Expert for z/OS and is the upgrade path included with your subscription and support when you are ready to move to the next release. Note that future query tuning enhancements will be made to these products. OSC is still available but will not be enhanced. It will be replaced by similar capabilities in Data Studio under development today.
And a reminder, we did add new discussion forums, including the Optim Query Tuning solution discussion forum.
This product is for deployment natively on z/OS systems (for example, with a WebSphere Application Server for z/OS deployment). Some of the capabilities we added were in response to requests from z/OS customers, including the ability to replace literals with parameter markers, making more statements eligible for static execution. You can find out more about this capability in Sonali’s article on developerWorks.Thanks for reading.
