IBM InfoSphere DataStage Essentials V11.5 (KM204G)


Duration : 4 Days

This course enables the project administrators and ETL developers to acquire the skills necessary to develop parallel jobs in DataStage. The emphasis is on developers. Only administrative functions that are relevant to DataStage developers are fully discussed. Students will learn to create parallel jobs that access sequential and relational data and combine and transform the data using functions and other job components


Course Objectives

  • Describe the uses of DataStage and the DataStage workflow
  • Describe the Information Server architecture and how DataStage fits within it
  • Describe the Information Server and DataStage deployment options
  • Use the Information Server Web Console and the DataStage Administrator client to create DataStage users and to configure the DataStage environment
  • Import and export DataStage objects to a file
  • Import table definitions for sequential files and relational tables
