Contents and Course Structure
Several topics in the area of Database Administration
are studied in this course with emphasis on:
- Database Security
- Storage Management
- Performance Management/Optimization
- Data Concurrency and Consistency
In the first part of the seminar, students are requested to collect material on some aspect of the above topics and prepare a
and an oral presentation. The focus is on
generally applicable concepts - independent of concrete products.
In the second part of the seminar, we will discuss these concepts
on a concrete database system, namely DB2. Students will then be requested to extend their written reports from the first part by a brief
reflection where the general concepts are
juxtaposed with the concrete realization.
The knowledge acquired in this seminar enables the students to pass the
IBM Certified Database Associate.
IBM Austria invites every participant of this seminar to do the certification exam free of charge.

Please note that the
certification exam is optional and independent of the course assessment.
