As a review book, it is ideal for residents in training and those preparing for board and in-service training examinations as well as medical students looking for a "deeper dive" into the world of rhinology. However, it is also excellent for the practitioner who wants to get a succinct update on the latest, cutting-edge knowledge in rhinology, allergy, and endoscopic skull base surgery. The information is authored by a collection of "who's who" of modern rhinology.
Formatted like the bestselling "Pasha" (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery) pocket guide, this text provides a condensed amount of high-yield information with a multidisciplinary approach to bring a broader range of insight into complex clinical challenges.

In addition, IBM now provides tools to simplify the enablement process, such as the highly scalable IBM Data Movement Tool for moving schema and data into DB2, and an Editor and Profiler for PL/SQL provided by the IBM Data Studio tool suite.
This Oracle to DB2 migration guide describes new technology, preferred practices for moving to DB2, and common scenarios that can help you as you move from Oracle to DB2. This book is intended for IT architects and developers who are converting from Oracle to DB2.
DB2 compatibility with Oracle is provided through native support. The new capabilities in DB2 that provide compatibility are implemented at the lowest and most intimate levels of the database kernel, as though they were originally engineered for DB2. means that the DB2 implementation is done without the aid of an emulation layer. This intimacy leads to the scalable implementation that DB2 offers, providing identical performance between DB2 compatibility features and DB2 other language elements. For example, DB2 runs SQL PL at the same performance as PL/SQL implementations of the same function.
This IBM Redbooks® publication addresses the DB2 pureScale feature that is available in IBM DB2 10.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows operating systems. It can help you build skills and deploy the DB2 pureScale feature. This book bundles all the information necessary for a in-depth analysis into the functions of the DB2 pureScale feature, including the actual hardware requirements. It includes validated step-by-step hardware and software installation instructions. In addition, this book provides detailed examples about how to work effectively with a DB2 pureScale cluster and how to plan and run an upgrade for all DB2 related components to DB2 10.1.
This book is intended for database administrators (DBAs) who use IBM DB2 10.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows operating systems who want to explore and get started with the DB2 pureScale feature.
