Information Technology professionals (database administrators, application programmers & designers, and production support personnel) who want a detailed understanding of the structure of and implementation options for IMS full-function and HALDB databases, including performance implications and guidelines.
This course is designed to provide you with the skills necessary to design, implement, and tune IMS database structures (full-function and HALDB only). Comprehensive physical design alternatives and their implications on performance are discussed. Classroom exercises reinforce topics presented in lectures.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Choose the appropriate IMS database access methods and z/OS access methods
- Define optimization parameters for maximum efficiency
- Describe the tools and techniques used in measuring tuning existing structures
A working knowledge of the IMS database environment as obtained by on the job work or attending IMS FUNDAMENTALS; programming experience is not required.
