Esoteric Functions in Db2

Friday November 19th, 2021

11:30 am (EDT) – New York
05:30 pm (CET) – Berlin – Paris – Madrid

Webinar presented by The Db2Night Show

In this presentation Roy will delve into FTB/FIT, Spatial Indexes, Regular Expressions, Clone tables and Scrollable cursors. All of these could be called esoteric as most shops do not use or even know of their existence! I would hope that after this presentation the viewers will have learned something new about Db2 and perhaps could use one or more of these esoteric functions so that it becomes „well known“ function and not a hidden gem!
