Using Optim Data Growth for Archiving on Distributed Systems

IBM Course Code: DT205G

Vendor# DT205G

GK# 3702

Course Overview

This course is designed to provide technical end-users and DBAs with a foundation in the functionality basics of the InfoSphere Optim Data Growth solution. This course focuses on the technical aspects of the Optim solution and is intended for technical audiences. Students will use Optim technology working through hands-on practice on how to apply the technology to business scenarios. This course prepares technical users with the Optim knowledge and skills necessary to participate in an Optim implementation project and confidently perform Optim tasks ongoing.

This course is designed to introduce the attendee to IBM Optim and to Optim's capabilities in helping clients to manage data growth. Students will use Optim processes to archive, delete, browse, restore, load, and insert data. They will also learn to use Open Data Manager (ODM) to access archived files and perform management activities.

This course prepares technical users with the Optim knowledge and skills necessary to participate in an Optim implementation project and confidently perform Optim tasks ongoing. During the course, hands-on exercises will be used to check the attendee's progress.

This course uses IBM InfoSphere Optim Data Growth Solution V9.1.0.4 on distributed systems.
