Get an Apple Watch Series 3 GPS. How? – With a trial version of Speedgain for Db2.

The first 3 trials within the EU over the entire period of 60 days, which we can accompany, will receive an Apple Watch Series 3 GPS. Within this time you will of course have full and free product support.This promotion is valid (start of the test phase) until 31 October 2018 and does not apply to existing customers. Speedgain for Db2 has developed considerably over time. Compared to other monitor solutions on the market, it offers a much wider range of functions. Experienced database administrators confirm that with Speedgain for Db2 they can find and fix bottlenecks faster and with less effort. Here’s a quote: Markus Fraune Database Administrator (Managed Service): “My first task in the morning is to look at Speedgain for Db2 and with just a few clicks I know all the essential metrics of the monitored database systems and what was going on on my systems that night. In addition, I already have alarms in my mailbox for serious problems and am therefore optimally prepared”. You always know the status of the monitored database systems. If key figures get worse, they see this immediately and can react early before it becomes a serious problem. Here is a selection of main functions which you will not or not like this find in other well-known Db2 monitoring solutions: Historical Monitoring Data Operating System Monitoring (Linux, AIX, Windows) Data Collection via UDF on the database Drill down approach – with a few clicks to the problem – it doesn’t get any better performance. Clear and understandable presentation of performance metrics. Chart based overviews with historical trends By drill down into the presentation of the detailed metrics in tabular form SQL Workload Comparison Integrated SQL workload set analysis Individual time windows with additionally definable filter conditions Check current workload against reference workloads DB2 Explain and Index Advisor SQL Workbench integrated Modern explain tree style Extensive table statistics Support via Db2 Index Advisor Build-in rules based Design Advisor Versatile reporting Extensible report function with the JasperReports library Assistance with custom report customization and integration Report archive in the own performance database Product support is provided directly by the development experts.

Simple and fast adjustment of DataStage jobs in 5 steps – with the JobBuilder – changes of 100 jobs in 100 minutes.

The JobBuilder integrates into an existing release and defect process. Jobs can be generated in each phase, but they can also be corrected manually. To change the specification and for defect treatments, use the following procedure with the JobBuilder: 1. Edit job template 2. Generate sample job 3. Test the template modification 4. Start the re-generation for all jobs based on the modified template 5. Wait 100 minutes and more than 100 jobs are updated 6. Test Deploy the re-generated jobs in production We will show you and convince you in 15 minutes – request a web session at more.about@itgain.de

Maximize your realization of ETL processes by more than 100%. Or do you still build your jobs in DataStage manually?

Maximize your realization of ETL processes by more than 100%. Or do you still build your jobs in DataStage manually? From the idea to the product, from the adversities of our experience with projects with and around DataStage, it was obvious to improve something. Therefore we develop the fastest JobBuilder for DataStage. And also the corresponding framework. The result is metadata-driven generation of jobs and sequences. Creating, migrating and customizing hundreds of jobs takes just five minutes. A small insight can be found on our website athttps://www.itgain-is.de/en/etl-automation/ Interested? Try it? Gladly!
