    Federation and integration are open technologies, which extend your investment on existing data and relational or non relational data by bringing it all together in a single virtual location for on demand application access. IBM DB2 Information Integrator V8.1 is the framework supporting federated data solutions.

    This IBM Redbooks publication provides implementation guidelines for deploying a federated access solution with IBM DB2 Information Integrator V8.1. Topics include configuring, tuning, and debugging a federated system; use of federation in a business intelligence-like environment with read access to relational (DB2 family, Oracle, SQL Server) and non relational sources (flat files, XML, ODBC), and usage through queries or reporting tools.

    This book will help you create a federated data solution with a case study, which accesses several data sources across the AIX , Windows , and z/OS platforms.
