DB2 Essentials, 3E: Understanding DB2 in a Big Data World is the easiest way to master the newest versions of DB2 for Linux®, UNIX®, and Windows, and apply their full power to today's business challenges. This highly visual guide introduces you to key concepts with dozens of examples drawn from the authors' experience working with IBM DB2 in enterprise environments. It has been thoroughly updated to reflect major improvements in both DB2 Version 10 and Version 9.7, including innovations in manageability, integration, Big Data support, and cloud computing.
This easy tutorial is built around visual learning. Each chapter starts with a large picture to introduce its key concepts. Figures are used extensively, and are fully and clearly explained; each concept is presented with intuitive screenshots, diagrams, charts, and tables. Many examples and case studies illustrate how "theory" is applied in real-life scenarios and production environments. Hundreds of review questions help you prepare for IBM's newest DB2 certification exams; solutions are provided in an appendix.
Building on the previous edition (Understanding DB2), DB2 Essentials is now the first of two volumes. "Essentials" covers everything DB2 newcomers need to get productive, including:
- A brief history of IBM DB2, new features in the current version, and available products, editions, and tools
