return and high ROI solution. Let Sheryl M. Larsen 20+ years of DB2
experience and award winning course material, increase your staff’s SQL
skills in one day of education. Her recent performance audits have easily
discovered poorly coded or tuned SQL. These avoidable situations can cost
you 50% CPU per transaction or 25% of your total CPU utilization. Did you
know the number of DB2 SQL clauses has doubled in the past few years? These
new SQL features can quickly reduce your operational costs and save you from
additional hardware upgrades. Sheryl’s SQL training class exposes students
to the inherent power of the SQL language, while making sure they know when
to use what SQL. Leave this class with powerful sample queries and the
confidence to implement them on DB2 for z/OS, Windows, Linux, and UNIX.
