IBM is launching a mastery exam to help database administrators identify and resolve thorny issues, the company announced last week.
The DB2 Problem Determination Mastery Exam will give DBAs the skills to investigate and isolate database issues.
IBM officials said DBAs who pass the exam will be equipped to resolve up to 75 percent of common database problems. For free study materials, DBAs can go to IBMs DB2 Technical Support site.
IBM recommends that test takers attain the IBM Certified Database Administrator certification before attempting to take the exam.
