Organizations today collect more data than ever, which ETL solutions must process during the batch window. Yet because these organizations provide services to customers across multiple geographic regions, there's no longer a lengthy natural batch window outside office hours when users are not impacted by batch loads.
It allows you to recover from errors quickly, reduces the risk that off-line processing might exceed its batch window, and improves the availability of your online CICS systems.
Briefly, as before, users click the Import File button on the upper left (Figure 1) to load a file or files into the batch window, then drag one or more encoding presets from the Audience Presets menu onto the files.
"Additionally, because of Sprint's unique and complex preprocessing requirements for all commissionable transactions, we were challenged by the combination of very large data volumes (up to 2.5 million commission credits per month), a relatively short available batch window, and the need to process data on a nightly basis."
The batch window continues to shrink while the amount of storage to be managed continues to grow.
Essentially, any open system application requiring access to mainframe data could gain immediate benefits in reducing mainframe CPU utilization and load, improving unreliable and costly data transfers and reducing batch window constraints.
As Blair explained, For companies struggling to make a batch window which is a small and well-defined time each day when organizations can update their DB2 mainframes even modest gains in either CPU usage or reductions in clock time can be a lifesaver.
In general, consider incremental copying as the table space becomes larger and the batch window becomes smaller.
The days of the long batch window where databases can be offline for extended periods to perform nightly processing are diminishing.
To further aggravate the problem, traditional batch window times that had previously accommodated business continuity processing have been sliced to the bone.
