Title: "How to Boost Performance of your XML Data in DB2"
Date/Time: August 16, 2005 at 11:00 AM EDT (8am Pacific Time).
About This Webcast:
XML is a key technology for the next stage in the evolution of
Information Management. XML is predominant in most organizations and
hosts an abundance of business information on public and private Web
sites. XML is quickly becoming the de facto standard for information
exchange and electronic forms, and XML-based service oriented
architectures (SOA) are emerging as the next major wave of application

Today, most XML content is stored either in file systems or in
relational or pure XML databases. When stored in relational databases,
the XML data is either shredded or stored as a single object
(BLOB/CLOB). While these methods have their advantages, retrieving and
updating this data can be expensive and time-consuming. At the same
time, most pure XML databases cannot scale to meet the needs of many
organizations and also limit the ability to leverage the investments
many organizations have already made in relational technology. Find out
how DB2 plans to solve these performance problems with new XML
technology designed to provide high performance. This webcast will
discuss new native XML storage, indexing, and access methods designed
to deliver high performance for your XML data.

After the webcast you can participate in an interactive Q&A session.
