Today our data is often duplicated and spread across multiple databases and operating systems. Unfortunately, each database has its own syntax and "idiosyncrasies" - the exact same SQL statement often won't work even if the schemas are identical. This session will help you leverage existing SQL experience against multiple databases, and provide some advanced techniques that you can use even if you only work with DB2. Highlights include User-Defined Functions (UDFs), Common Table Expressions (CTEs) and derived files.
