DB2 12 for z/OS Technical Overview

January 17, 2017

I don't need to tell you that a career working with DB2 for z/OS is never boring. DB2 for z/OS continues to evolve at an ever-increasing pace. To help you keep up with all these changes, IBM has delivered a new Redbook, "DB2 12 for z/OS Technical Overview."

While continuing to deliver  availability, reliability, scalability and security for business-critical information, DB2 12 expands and improves in these other key areas:
  • Simpler and faster to install or migrate.
  • Performance and functional improvements for transactional and analytic workloads.
  • Added self-provisioning, multitenancy and self-managing capabilities to develop applications for cloud and mobile devices in an Agile development environment.

This document is intended to introduce DB2 systems programmers, DBAs and developers to the latest enhancements so they can justify an investment in DB2 12 as well as make plans to install or migrate to the new release.
