  • 1. DB2 UDB for the iSeries As technology continues to invade all aspects of a companies business, the data stored within those systems is becoming an integral asset that will help determine a company's success. The value of the information stored within the data is lost without a comprehensive database management system to manage and process that data. The iSeries has just such a management system, called DB2 UDB for the iSeries that will allow you to process your data into valuable information. This Course of Study will cover all of the aspects and features that can be found within DB2 UDB for the iSeries and will allow the student to come away with the knowledge of how to program, query and manage their data on the iSeries.
