This course provides a detailed explanation of the methodology to be followed in order to design and implement efficient Db2 for z/OS databases. The course discusses all aspects of database design from the logical data model and implementation of the physical design, through to ongoing performance monitoring of the resultant database.<br><br>This course is also available for one-company, on-site presentations and for live presentation over the Internet, via the Virtual Classroom Environment service.
