Announcement for WMSUG & i-94 User Group meeting
June 27th - *** Note: Special date *** 


"Leveraging Db2 Web Query to Simplify Security Compliance and Systems Utilization Monitoring" by Doug Mack, DB2 for i Analytics Consultant, IBM Power Systems Lab Services.

Db2 Web Query is a Business Intelligence product for IBM i that simplifies data analysis for business people making business decisions, modernizes Query/400, and provides powerful data driven analysis. What's in it for the Systems Administrator? With IBM's Db2 Web Query based security solution, you could easily monitor over 1000 security attributes across your LPARs/servers and report on exceptions to compliance policy. With the evolving delivery in IBM i of "System Services" it becomes quite easy to build dashboards or reports over various things a Systems Administrator likes to track - like work management, PTFs, journaling and system limits - and this session will show you how you do that!
