comparision between DB2 Connect and Shadow Direct

P: n/a
I have been given the task to come up with Requirements, Comparision
and Migration document from Shadow Direct to DB2 Connect. I am very new
much to all this, but kind of know a little bit about both of them.
There has been a lot of pressure from business to move to DB2 Connect
from Shadow Direct which the company is currently using since almost 7
years.

I would greatly appreciate if any one of you can help or send me some
comparision and differences between the two, and also the best
migration approach document. Also if there is anything which DB2
connect cannot do which Shadow direct can do, and also any information
on any performance overheads for using one or the other.

Thanks in advance, any help is much appreciated

Regards

To get you started ...

DB2 Connect:

- allows exploitation of z/OS workload manager.
- connects directly to DB2 instead of going through an external z/OS
address space for lower overhead
- most often has lower TCO
- uses z/OS SRBs rather than TCBs for lower overhead
- conforms to the DRDA open standard
