We live in an age when data is one of an organization’s most important assets. Companies want the ability to deliver the right information to the right people at the right time. Being agile and applying predictive analytics is the key to the insights needed to grow business so that it remains at a peak competitive edge. The cost of database administration can greatly exceed the cost of the database software and hardware, so it is critical that your database administrator’s time is used effectively and efficiently.
IBM® DB2® for z/OS® helps lower the cost of managing data by automating administration, increasing storage efficiency, improving performance, and simplifying deployment of virtual appliances. By automating tasks such as memory allocation, storage management, and business policy maintenance, DB2 can perform many management tasks, freeing database administrators (DBAs) to focus on new projects. With the IBM DB2 Automation Tool for z/OS from the IBM DB2 Utilities Solution Pack for z/OS, you can set up recurring utility jobs for conditional and routine maintenance tasks; it helps you consume fewer system and staff resources by automating utility maintenance for objects based on your business needs.
This IBM Redbooks® Solution Guide describes how DB2 for z/OS autonomic features help lower the cost of managing data by automating administration, increasing storage efficiency, improving performance and simplifying the deployment of virtual appliances.
