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!
Do share your thoughts, experiences on IBM Optim tool in this blog.

This article describes the integration between SPSS and Cognos solutions. The integration with Cognos comes in the form of being able to directly connect to Cognos as a data source for SPSS modeler and also being able to export the results to Cognos directly to allow Cognos to report on the results. The benefits of using Cognos as a source is that your data is all in one place and its formatted and tidied up suitable for SPSS analytics. Exporting the results to Cognos has the benefit of being able to report on the results using the familiar.
Cognos reporting formats and various different types of Cognos reports, such as dashboards and active reports. Below figure showcases one such context diagram and its integration with SPSS:
To implement this is reasonably straight forward and involves selecting the Cognos source node or the Cognos export node and dragging it into your stream as shown below:
You then have to edit the Cognos node and add the Cognos server IP address details and login credentials. As shown on Figure below –
You also need to make an ODBC connection to the Cognos Data warehouse from the SPSS server. This needs to have the same name and details as the Cognos data source. If these details do not match on the Cognos and the SPSS server the integration will not work.Below figure shows the details:
The benefits of using Cognos as a source is that your data is all in one place and its formatted and tidied up suitable for SPSS analytics. Exporting the results to Cognos has the benefit of being able to report on the results using the familiar reporting format and various different types of Cognos reports that the company uses.
Note: To either export to Cognos or use Cognos as a data source an ODBC connection to the Cognos data warehouse must be established as well as the Cognos Server connection.Summary:
In this way, we can integrate IBM Cognos BI with IBM SPSS product and get reporting data from prediction and analysis from SPSS.

Let's all face it, Cloud Computing was a Fad in 2010, 2011 it drove influence to key IT Decision makers to conduct Cloud POCs in the Enterprise, and in 2012, the drive to adoption will further increase if the current rate of demand continues.
Today, I delivered a webinar on DB2 and Cloud Computing with Databases in the Cloud on IBM DeveloperWorks.
It was an amazing experience talking to DB2 Users and IT Pros in general.
The focus of this article is to illustrate some of the key benefits and resources available for implementing a Cloud Solution.
I have attached the presentation that outlines the presentation.
