UPGRADE TO THE NEW GENERATION OF DATABASE SOFTWARE FOR THE ERA OF BIG DATA!If big data is an untapped natural resource, how do you find the gold hidden within? Leaders realize that big data means all data, and are moving quickly to extract more value from both structured and unstructured application data. However, analyzing this data can prove costly and complex, especially while protecting the availability,performance and reliability of essential business applications. In the new era of big data, businesses require data systems that can blend always-available transactions with speed-of-thought analytics. DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration provides this speed, simplicity, andaffordability while making it easier to build next-generation applications with NoSQL features, such as a mongo-styled JSON document store, a graph store, and more. Dynamic in-memory columnar processing and other innovations deliver faster insights from more data, and enhanced pureScale clustering technology delivers high-availability transactions with application-transparent scalability for business continuity. With this book, you'll learn about the power and flexibility of multiworkload, multi-platform database software. Use the comprehensive knowledge from a team of DB2 developers and experts to get started with the latest DB2 trial version you can download at ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/im/db2/.

Learn to build custom SSIS tasks using Visual Studio Community Edition and Visual Basic. Bring all the power of Microsoft .NET to bear on your data integration and ETL processes, and for no added cost over what you've already spent on licensing SQL Server. If you already have a license for SQL Server, then you do not need to spend more money to extend SSIS with custom tasks and components. Why are custom components necessary? Because even though the SSIS catalog of built-in tasks and components is a marvel of engineering, there do remain gaps in the functionality that is provided. These gaps are especially relevant to enterprises practicing Data Integration Lifecycle Management (DILMS) and/or DevOps. One of the gaps is a limitation of the SSIS Execute Package task. Developers using the stock version of that task are unable to select SSIS packages from other projects. Yet it's useful to be able to select and execute tasks across projects, and the example used throughout this book will help you to create an Execute Catalog Package task that does in fact allow you to execute a task from another project. Building on the example's pattern, you can create any task that you like, custom tailored to your specific, data integration and ETL needs. What You Will Learn Configure and execute Visual Studio in the way that best supports SSIS task development Create a class library as the basis for an SSIS task, and reference the needed SSIS assemblies Properly sign assemblies that you create in order to invoke them from your task Implement source code control via Visual Studio Team Services, or your own favorite tool set Code not only your tasks themselves, but also the associated task editors Troubleshoot and then execute your custom tasks as part of your own project Who This Book Is For Database administrators and developers who are involved in ETL projects built around SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Readers should have a background in programming along with a desire to optimize their ETL efforts by creating custom-tailored tasks for execution from SSIS packages.
