My apologies for such an open-ended question.
We're a COBOL shop (split between ILE and OPM). From what I can tell, our
COBOL developers don't do much more with DB2 than create physical files and
logical files using DDS. We have several SQL queries. We also have several
stored procedures. But mostly our developers write COBOL programs that use
record level access.
I have the IBM Redbook on modernization, and I'm starting to read the
chapter on data-centric development.
I'd appreciate any thoughts or info on the following:
1. I know DB2 for i has some new capabilities around storing JSON. What
other capabilities does DB2 have that would be useful for web and mobile
development? What should we be taking advantage of in DB2 for web and
2. I have a very vague idea that moving business logic and development
from COBOL into DB2 as much as possible is a good thing. But I don't really
understand. I can't explain what this means, why we should do it, or offer
a few good examples. Would someone mind briefly sharing some ideas or
talking points for a good elevator speech?
Thanks in advance for any insights and info.
