BLU Acceleration is an exciting new feature in IBM® DB2® 10.5 that can speed up complex analytic workloads tremendously. Workloads run faster without the need for tuning.

It's easy to create and load tables in the new column-organized format, as is on-going maintenance because there is no need for indexes or tuning materialized query tables (MQTs). This article walks you through three scenarios that illustrate how to use Data Studio and IBM® InfoSphere® Optim™ Query Workload Tuner (OQWT) with the new BLU Acceleration feature.
