ALM202 DB2 9.7 LUW for SAP - The Success Story Continues
DB2 9.7 LUW introduced various new database features that are specially designed for running SAP on DB2 LUW. Reduced storage costs, improved performance, new autonomic features, and finally, TCO reduction, are the major business drivers of the new SAP on DB2 9.7 LUW solutions. Among the highlights are index and temp space compression, LOB data inlining, the new DB2 Cobra monitoring, automatic storage extensions, data warehouse improvements, and automatic space reclaim of MDC tables. The attendees will not only learn how these features are seamlessly integrated into SAP's applications, but also have a chance to hear first-hand experiences, lessons learned, best practices, and exciting numbers during the integration testing and by our early customers. This session is strongly recommended for every DBA who is responsible for DB2 databases running SAP. It is also beneficial to Basis administrators who want to know a little more about the underlining database engine.
