IMS Database Design & Implementation

Training Summary
This course is designed to provide you with the skills necessary to design, implement, and tune IMS database structures (full-function and HALDB only). Comprehensive physical design alternatives and their implications on performance are discussed. Classroom exercises reinforce topics presented in lectures. Upon completion you should be able to choose the appropriate IMS database access method, define optimization parameters for maximum efficiency, and describe the tools and techniques used in measuring and tuning existing structures.
A working knowledge of the IMS database environment as obtained by on the job work or attending IMS FUNDAMENTALS; programming experience is not required.
