Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 993 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which DB2 improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 993 standard requirements:
- Why can total participation of an entity type in a relationship type also be referred to as existence dependency of that entity type in that relationship type?
- What is the difference between a declarative constraint that can be defined as part of a CREATE TABLE or ALTER TABLE statement and a declarative assertion?
- Which data movement utility is suitable for moving and processing large amounts of real-time data into the data warehouse without affecting availability?
- Why are attribute preservation, dependency preservation, and lossless-join decomposition requirements of a fully normalized database design?
- What is the difference between a character field that contains a null value and a character field that contains a single blank space?
- Do the business requirements indicate that one or more dimensions in the cube will be defined with many members and with many levels?
- Is there expected growth in the number of applications loaded on the server or the amount of data loaded into existing applications?
- What is required in order to decompose a ternary and higher-order relationship type in preparation for mapping to a logical schema?
- When a new model has been through the design process do you do anything to test query response time or is that down to the users?
- Which is the CICS control program that provides communication services between user written application programs and terminals?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make DB2 investments work better.
This DB2 All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
