IBM InfoSphere Advanced DataStage - Parallel Framework v11.5

IBM InfoSphere Advanced DataStage - Parallel Framework v11.5

Category: Infosphere

Description

This course is designed to introduce advanced parallel job development techniques in DataStage v11.5. In this course you will develop a deeper understanding of the DataStage architecture, including a deeper understanding of the DataStage development and runtime environments. This will enable you to design parallel jobs that are robust, less subject to errors, reusable, and optimized for better performance.

Audience

Experienced DataStage developers seeking training in more advanced DataStage job techniques and who seek an understanding of the parallel framework architecture.

Duration

3 days

Requirements

IBM InfoSphere DataStage Essentials course or equivalent and at least one year of experience developing parallel jobs using DataStage.

Q&A

  • Can you customize courses to suit our particular requirements? Yes, of course. We offer training consultancy and we establish the most appropriate solution according to the specific needs and business objectives of your company. Contact us and we’ll find the best training solution for you.
  • Can individuals use your services or they are organized for companies?Yes, we organise open courses which can be accessed by individuals. Whether you are looking for an IT or a Business training, you can find it at Brain Concert. Moreover, you’ll meet people from the same area of work as you and we can create communities of practice, where you can share professional tips and tricks and best practices.
  • What types of trainings are available for my company? We offer a variety of courses: in the IT area, there are Agile & Lean Courses, Software Development Courses, QA Courses, Software Administration Courses and Security Courses. We also offer Business Courses, focused on the development of soft skills. Define your objectives and choose the most appropriate training for you or your company.
  • What should I know before choosing a training? You should know that we offer courses for everyone, but you have to choose according to some criteria. First, define your objectives, then, the level of the participants (basic, advanced). There are courses with some requirements attached because the participants of a training session must form a compact group in terms of their previous knowledge so that they and the trainers are on the same page.
  • What is the minimum number of participants if we want in-house training? The minimum number of participants for an in-house depends on the course type. Please contact us to establish these details.
  • Can you organize virtual training sessions or only face to face trainings? Yes, you can choose an online or offline training session. We use Knolyx, an e-learning platform to make the process of online training delivery as efficient as a face to face training session.
