    Unanswered: Amish in the City

    Hi Everyone,
    I work at a city agency which has DB2 available in the mainframe, but my department will not use it. my bosses insist that the status quo is the way to go. currently we match flat files all day long using batch processing, and no one has the guts to suggest that we do anything new. What can I do to get them to change????

    I do not know your entire situation, but if you can, and have the time and resources, develop something on DB2 that does what you currently are doing on a smaller scale. Then show those with their head in the sand the two systems side by side. I have alway found that a picture is worth a thousand words.

    What are you doing?

    If you're processing QSAM files, then that means batch, and that would mean table scans

    What's the application(s) for?

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.
