DB2 11 for z/OS Database Administration Workshop

Why take this course?

After completing this course, you will be able to
  • describe the major components of the DB2 product and environments.
  • code DDL statements to create and maintain DB2 objects.
  • implement a DB2 database.
  • use stored procedures and triggers.
  • resource serialization, locking and concurrency
  • use DB2's security and authorization mechanisms to control access to the DB2 data.
  • use DB2's Explain facility to view and optimize DB2 data access paths.
  • use the DB2 Catalog to monitor database performance.
  • create effective backup and recovery strategies for applications.

This course provides comprehensive and practical training for database administrators working with DB2. You will learn about Database Design, data modelling, logical and physical design, and Administration, including data integrity, backup and recovery, security, performance and application support. We will review the DB2 product from a DBA perspective and give you extensive hands-on exercises so you leave with a ready-to-use, working knowledge of the different components of a DBA's toolkit.

Who should attend?

Existing and future DB2 database administrators who need formal skills training to implement, maintain and enhance DB2 implementations.

Any prerequisites?

You should have a good understanding of DB2 concepts and facilities. Ideally, you have at least 3 months of practical DB2 experience in application development or database administration.

You will also be familiar with
  • DB2's data integrity control mechanisms.
  • database administration related utilities.

Competency Assessments

At the request of the person booking, a technical competency assessment will be conducted with the student.
This assessment will be a combination of written and multiple choice questions as well as specific coding tests.
Upon a minimum pass rate of 85%, students will receive a Certificate of Competency instead of the standard certificate of course completion.
