DB2 for z/OS has a new cool feature: the IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator or IDAA. The IDAA is a marriage of DB2 for z/OS and Netezza technology to accelerate complex queries in a highly secure and available environment. This 60 minute video will explain what it is exactly, how it works and why you would want such an accelerator.

Note: Although the IDAA has evolved a lot since this video was recorded the information in this presentation is still very valuable!
