Improving Police "Body Cam" Programs with an End-to-End Solution
Data Management

Redpaper, published 8 Jan 2016, last updated 13 Jan 2016

Policing in the 21st Century saw major advances in technology and operational efficiency and an increased focus on accountability. Citizens play a huge role in the equation as critical first communicators at crime and accident scenes. The perspective of the law enforcement officer (LEO) is equally vital. And today, that perspective is frequently, and increasingly, captured by using body-worn cameras (BWCs). This IBM® Redpaper™ publication aims to identify the key technical areas to address when a police agency deploys BWCs. However, rather than focus on the camera itself, we describe a ... [more]

Implementation Best Practices for IBM DB2 BLU Acceleration with SAP BW on IBM Power Systems
Power Systems

Redbooks, published 11 May 2015

BLU Acceleration is a new technology that has been developed by IBM® and integrated directly into the IBM DB2® engine. BLU Acceleration is a new storage engine along with integrated run time (directly into the core DB2 engine) to support the storage and analysis of column-organized tables. The BLU Acceleration processing is parallel to the regular, row-based table processing found in the DB2 engine. This is not a bolt-on technology nor is it a separate analytic engine that sits outside of DB2. Much like when IBM added XML data as a first class object within the database along with all the ...

The Value of Active-Active Sites with Q Replication for IBM DB2 for z/OS An Innovative IBM Client's Experience
Data Management

Redpaper, published 23 Jan 2015

Any business interruption is a potential loss of revenue. Achieving business continuity involves a tradeoff between the cost of an outage or data loss with the investment required for achieving the recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO). Continuous system availability requires scalability, as well as failover capability for maintenance, outages, and disasters. It also requires a shift from standby to active-active systems. Active-active sites are geographically distant transaction processing centers, each with the infrastructure to run business operations and with ... [more]
