March 22nd, 2019 meeting:
What’s on the Agenda?

8:30 – 9:00 Greeting / Registration / Continental Breakfast

9:00 to 9:05 ADUG News – Ted Alexander/Susan Eisen

9:10 – 10:30.
Session 1: Use Your On-Premises Data for Machine Learning in the Cloud:

Description: Many companies struggle to use their on-premises data for machine learning in the cloud. With IBM Watson Studio and Watson Machine Learning, IBM Db2 and IBM Secure Gateway, you can establish a secure, persistent connection between your on-premises data and the cloud to train machine learning models leveraging cloud computing resources like Spark, elastic environments and GPUs. In this presentation, we’ll connect a populated Db2 Developer-C database on a local computer to Watson Studio via Secure Gateway. We’ll read data from the database, build a prediction, and deploy it as an API endpoint with Watson Machine Learning.

Speaker: Roger Sanders – IBM - Field Enablement Professional - IBM z Systems Machine Learning
About Roger Sanders:
Roger E. Sanders is a IBM Field Enablement Professional - IBM z Systems at IBM who has been working with Db2 since 1991. He is the author of 25 books on relational database technology and for 10 years, he authored the "Distributed DBA" column in IBM Data Magazine. Roger has also written articles for IBM's developerWorks website, presented at a variety of International Db2 User's Group conferences, and taught courses on Db2.

Morning Break around 10:30am – 10:40am (somewhere in there) then

Session 2: Db2 Security Compliance and Support:

Description: Although security and compliance are deeply intertwined, they are not the same. One is used to ensure that something (in our case, data) is only accessed by individuals who have been authorized to access it, while the other is used to put a specific set of controls in place that ensures an organization is abiding by a regulation. This presentation illustrates how the various security mechanisms available with Db2 can be used to harden a database environment to help support the requirements of one or more compliance specifications many companies must follow. A high-level overview of GDPR will also be provided as a foundation.

Break for Lunch around 12: Noon. For 30 minutes or so

Session 3: Eliminating the burden of DB2 data provisioning for Non-Prod. How to change the process from making copies to granting access securely

Speaker: Jatinder Luthra, Senior Consultant, and Krishna Kapa Senior Database Architect Delphix Corp
Description: New SW Development methodologies, the adoption of more analytics and learning algorithms and enhanced security needs are requiring more speed and automatism to current data provisioning processes in place. The objective of this session is to analyze, share and discuss about how non-production environments are growing and why and will try to shed some light on options we have for DB2 to improve and accelerate data provisioning without impacting production systems

Afternoon Stretch Break:  2:15pm to 2:25pm

2:25pm to 3:40pm

Session 4: DB2 Data Security in a GDPR regulated world
Speaker: Krishna Kapa Senior Database Architect and Jatinder Luthra, Senior Consultant, Delphix Corp.

Description:  Enforced by the European Union since April 2018, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is making many CIOs and CISOs nervous about how to deal with the data we have in our databases. As DBAs, we are responsible to ensure data we store and provision for an increasing number of non-prod environments and end-users is compliant with GDPR (and also other) regulations. The objective of this presentation is to learn what options do we have today when it comes to securely and efficiently manage data masking for DB2 in compliance with GDPR.
