Speaker Bio

Keri Romanufa is an STSM and the Chief Architect for the Db2. She has been a member of the Db2 team for 28+ years. She has had a variety of roles in System Test and Performance Teams, but as spend the majority of her career in Development. She has contributed to many of Db2’s advances including the initial release of DB2 pureScale, driving technologies such as space reclaim for objects and storage (DMS and later automatic) and focusing on performance especially in the buffer pool area. In doing so, Keri has achieved 23 patents.

SQL is a very powerful language. To support it the Db2 optimizer has many ways to get to the data and combine partial results into the final result set. even though many tools are available to visualize the access path Db2 plans to execute, the output can be complex to understand. Breaking it down to the the basic elements and understanding the way data is accessed by those elements will enable less experienced developers and DBA’s to find performance problems quickly.

Speaker Bio

I have extensive experience in mainframe computing, specifically with Db2 for z/OS.
My career covers application developing, db2 database administration, db2 for z/os system engineering as well as general mainframe architecture and performance management.
For many years I have supported IBM customers worldwide in parallel sysplex implementation projects in my role as IBM Db2 for z/OS Lab Advocate.

I have a keen interest in mainframe modernisation and exposing the unique value proposition of the mainframe in modern enterprise IT infrastructure.

This session will kick off the IMS track of the Central Canada Db2 User Group event. Chief IMS Architect, Betty Bucci, will talk about recent enhancements to IMS, new offerings on the IBM Z Application platform, as well as what is on the horizon for IMS. What will the development experience for IMS look like in the future and what does the hybrid cloud have to do with it? Get these questions answered, and more!

Speaker Bio
