This presentation will position where the IBM Db2 DevOps Experience fits in the DevOps world.

IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator saved my life - taking 3 years of processing down to hours by giving us an epic leap in data masking. Then we lit the Optim Scrubbing process on fire. You will learn the details around what made this a success, and the challenges we faced. We'll share mind blowing performance numbers and talk about some non-"traditional" uses for the IDAA. It can be utilized for more than analytics and data mining. Plus we'll share ideas on how transform your data in the fraction of the time traditional methods would take. Greg will then share some of the other features that State Farm is currently working with on both IDAA V5 and V7.
