Seminar Description:
The majority of SMLI’s performance audits easily discover poorly coded or performing SQL. These statements can easily add up to 25% total CPU utilization. If your goal is optimizing IT, DB2 SQL education and tuning is a low cost, immediate return, high ROI and low organizational blockade solution.

Let SQL tuning expert Sheryl M. Larsen with over 20 years of DB2 experience, award winning lectures and course material, increase your developers’ SQL tuning skills in as little as one day of education.
