Webinar Replay: 6-Steps to Determining if DB2 Multi-Row Fetch is Right for Your Shop

All Baseline Posts, Baseline Videos, Webinars

We had  a great turnout yesterday for our webinar 6-Steps to Determining if DB2 Multi-Row Fetch is Right for Your Shop. Scott did an excellent job explaining how to identify the programs and cursors with the highest potential savings from MRF and how to calculate the overall potential CPU savings from implementing MRF. Our DB2 Tech panel also did a terrific job answering attendee questions during the Q&A session.

Watch the video replay of the presentation below. The actual presentation ends at about the 18:50 mark, the remainder of the video includes the detailed Q&A session with our DB2 tech panel. Enjoy!

Planning Next Year’s IT budget? Don’t forget MRF!

All Baseline Posts, Baseline Videos, Multi-Row FETCH

Watch the 3 minute video to learn why:

 

Implementing multi-row FETCH (MRF) in your DB2 applications can dramatically improve CPU consumption, by as much as 75% in open cursor FETCH processing. But the big challenges are:

  • Costs of allocating time to manually recode
  • Risk damaging functionality

Attach Facility mitigates these challenges by quickly and automatically implementing MRF in your batch DB2 applications – no recoding required.

Watch the Replay: Craig Mullins’ R4H Cost Reduction Webinar

All Baseline Posts, Baseline Videos, Multi-Row FETCH, Webinars

Craig gave another great presentation yesterday on how to control your rolling four hour average (R4H). When you’re on variable workload licensing, understanding and controlling the R4H is critical to keeping your monthly bill in check. Craig discusses how you can directly restrict the R4H using soft capping and how techniques like tuning DB2 can reduce your overall CPU consumption – and subsequently your R4H. You can download Craig’s presentation slide deck here.

Watch the Sheryl Larsen’s SQL Tuning webinar replay

All Baseline Posts, Baseline Videos, Multi-Row FETCH, Webinars

We’ve seen a huge response to the Sheryl Larsen webinar we sponsored yesterday, titled “Find Lost Money in your SQL: Efficiently Finding and Fixing High Resource Consuming SQL”.

It was an incredibly informative and educational webinar, in which Sheryl showed us dozens of ways to reduce CPU usage. At the end of the webinar, we talked breifly about our new ROI calculator for multi-row FETCH, which estimates the amount of money your shop will save over a 5 year period by implementing multi-row FETCH manually, or by using SoftBase’s Attach Facility MRF feature which automatically retrofits your applications for multi-row FETCH. You can input a few variables, and we’ll generate a custom 5-year savings and ROI forecast, specific to your shop! It’s quick easy, and a little fun! Here are a few neat examples of what we’ll create for you (did I mention it’s FREE?)

Here at SoftBase, we take pride in the quality of our company and products.

The video below shows several of us SoftBase employees talking about what quality means to us. Have a look!


Video: What does customer service mean to SoftBase employees?

All Baseline Posts, Baseline Videos

Last week, I walked around the office with camcorder in hand, asking my coworkers three questions:

  1. What does customer service mean to you?
  2. What does quality mean to you?
  3. What is one of the funniest or most embarrassing moments you’ve had here at SoftBase?

 

The video below shows several of us SoftBase employees talking about what customer service means to us. At the end of the video, we asked our customers to fill out a satisfaction survey. As one of the most important elements to any company, we think everyone should know how important customer service is to us!

Check back for the other videos soon – I think the funny/embarrassing moments video will be very entertaining!
