BMC AMI Change Manager for Db2® 13.x: Fundamentals Using (WBT)

BMC AMI Change Manager for Db2® on z/OS is a product that replaces the unreliable process of managing database changes manually with automation for implementing structural changes, migrating data, and tracking modifications across multiple Db2 systems. It helps you validate changes in a test environment before moving to production. It also uses version control to roll changes back or forward as needed.

The growing complexity of the Db2 environment has made the change process more difficult and costly. Without the change management tool, DBAs find the entire change process tedious and complex. BMC AMI Change Manager for Db2 enables DBAs to deal effectively with the demands of a constantly changing environment.

The course focuses on change management, which DBAs need to perform. It mainly covers automating common tasks related to data structural changes. It also helps the learner get hands-on experience.
