Extra Sessions: Room J 2nd floor

Session Evaluation

Abstract 

Every IT installation have COBOL code where they wonder, why is it slow? 

You may also be in a situation, that you did not know that the COBOL code was slow, much slower than the Db2 in the program.

At this session you will have the chance to optimize the code you have be struggling with for long. Or learn that optimizing the COBOL code really matters.

Bring the COBOL code or COBOL statement you want to optimize. Please note – we will not handle Db2 statements.

In this session we will look into the COBOL code examples that you bring and that you struggle with, consuming a lot of CPU. 

It could also be that you just want to do something smarter or faster to save CPU, just bring it on.

Maybe you will tell us something very smart, that will save others a lot of CPU, the choice is yours. But all your input must be related to the COBOL code.

IBM and all the participants in the session will try to help and learn from your troubles/ideas, and input from the session will be handed over to IBM who may be able to use the input for COBOL language improvements.
