11C                 Availability   13.00-16.45       
Ready Set Plan
Do you have a disaster recovery plan? Are you really prepared? The difference in surviving in business depends on how well you prepare for the unexpected. If a disaster struck, how would your company do? This session is designed for the IT personnel responsible for systems availability. Using the Business Continuity Model, the session breaks down the various components of the recovery planning as it relates to the availability and recovery of computing services.                

Business Continuity for 21st Century
Complacent DR thinking is a classic risk management mistake that will cost your organization dearly in a disaster.  People, Technology and Geography are common critical points of failure in a regional disaster.  Now organizations can choose from a host of technologies to incrementally improve or completely transform their backup, recovery, and enhance availability requirements for the Data Center. Data protection techniques have made great strides as it relates to recovery of IBM Power and other DC platforms.
The seminar will provide the attendee an overview of the following fundamentals:

1.      Backup & Recovery Best Practices
2.      Cloud  – Virtualization for DR
3       Systems Availability

12                        Beyond the Glitz – Dispelling DB2 Myths
We know the stories…
My Boss thinks we should move to SQL Server
Oracle is being considered for our company’s data warehouse
Our CIO is new and doesn’t know much about this IBM i/System i/AS400 and thinks we should
do HP+Oracle
This other platform is cheaper
These are among the most common reasons that shops give for moving data off IBM i.
In this session we will debunk the myths that exist around DB2 for i and how it compares in comparison to other databases

23A           Raising the Bar – A Jumpstart to Using SOAP Web Services in RPG Part1
The Internet abounds with available services using Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP). The process of consuming these services from your programs is a bit tricky, that is until you use one of IBM’s latest tools WSDL2RPG, which is a component of Integrated Web Services (IWS). This tool does the heavy lifting for you and sets up an entire environment with a callable RPG service program. And the best part is this V5R4 and above tool is FREE! Refuse to be intimidated! In this session we’ll work with the tool and review step-by-step the process of testing and consuming a SOAP web service and displaying its information in a working RPG display program. Learn how you can leverage this technology so your applications can explode beyond your own four walls and gain access to vast information resources on the web in real-time. Here is a great place to start your learning –

23B            A Whole Lotta Collaboration on your IBM i
Wikis, blogs, AJAX, Web 2.0, Social Business? All these buzz word, acronyms, and abbreviations. What do they all mean and more importantly how does it related to IBM i? Web 2.0 is considered to be the second wave of the World Wide Web and its services. Web 2.0 highlights the role of the web as a platform, as well as a social collaborative medium for connecting people with other people, their content, media, and products. Social Business is the result of what Web 2.0 can look like in practice. We will cover an overview of the important technologies that make up Web 2.0 and Social Business and then take a quick look at the latest offering now available on IBM i – IBM Connections.   IBM Connections allows you to create a place where your company can participate in Social Business from either from an internal perspective, external (customers to business), or somewhere in between.

23C            How to Boost Query Performance Using Indexes
On any platform, good SQL performance depends on good design. And good design includes a solid understanding of indexes: how many to build, their structure and complexity, and their maintenance requirements.
This is also true for DB2 for i, which provides a robust set of choices for indexing and accessing tables.

In this session, you will:
1. Understand why indexes are important to the query optimizer.
2. Be able to determine what columns in a table are the best candidates for new indexes.
3. Understand what types of indexes (binary radix or encoded vector) should be created and how they will   benefit queries.
4. Understand what new tools are available to analyze your indexing strategy.
Many examples will be included and discussed

23E            Outsourcing i molnet
I dag kan traditionell outsourcing av IBM i vara en ganska komplicerad process där det ställs höga krav av beställaren med statiska miljöer som resultat. Men måste det alltid vara som förr… Tieto lyssnade på marknaden och skapade iTAP, en dynamisk och lättförstående tjänst som bygger på Power Systems, AIX och IBM i. På denna session kommer Jimi Inge att visa hur Tieto gör det möjligt att leverera outsourcing av Power som en molntjänst och hur man som användare av iTAP bara betalar för de resurser man faktiskt använder. Vi kommer att se vilka applikationer iTAP är kompatibla med samt en närmare titt på portalen för iTAP där man dynamiskt och levande kan justera både upp och ned sin kapacitet. Samt titta lite närmare på hur kunderna gjorde ”på riktigt”… och hur gick det sen?

24C            Set Based Thinking: How SQL Differs from Record Level Access
In this session we will introduce the concept of data “sets” and discuss how the SQL language (DDL and DML) define,  access and manipulate rows, not records.
We will compare and contrast the notion of “record at a time” to “set at a time”, and work on thinking, programming and processing via sets.
Tables are not files. SQL is declarative, not procedural.
If you are still struggling with the idea of “sets”, or still trying to get SQL to behave like record at a time,
this topic is for you.

26D           Hur en kompositör får betalt när musiken spelas på Spotify
Jag heter Mats Lidström och är Chief Technical Architect på företaget International Copyright Enterprise, även kallat ICE.
ICE levererar centraliserade tjänster runt Musikupphovsrätt och även de avancerade systemen för att hantera denna komplexa verksamhet. Som du säkert har märkt har sättet att konsumera och distribuera musik förändrats radikalt de senaste åren. Spotify, iTunes, smartphones och liknade tjänster och produkter är en del av den förändringen.
Detta ställer höga krav på de system som ser till att de som har skapat och äger rättigheterna till använd musik får sin berättigande ersättning på på ett kostnadseffektivt och säkert sätt. Lika viktigt är det att erbjuda rimliga licenser för de som ser till att musiken sprids och konsumeras.
Jag kommer att berätta mer om detta samt hur senaste IBM Power och IBM i teknilogin är kärnan i detta.
