IBM Data Movement Tool
Move data from source databases to DB2 in an easy way
Vikram S. Khatri, Certified Consulting I/T Specialist, IBM Summary: This article presents a very simple and powerful tool tomove data from various sources easily. The tool allows enabling applications from Oracle and Sybase to run on IBM® DB2®, Version 9.7 for Linux®, UNIX®, and Windows® as is, with very little or no changes. The tool can also be used to move data from various other database management systems to DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows and DB2 for z/OS®. The tool also supports moving data from a sourcedatabase to the DB2 in a pureScale environment.

This tool can be used to move data from various data sources to the DB2 in a pureScale environment. Beginning with DB2 V9.7 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, the Migration Toolkit(MTK) is not required in order to use applications from Oracle and Sybase (After Fixpack 3) on DB2 products. This tool replaces the MTK functionality with a greatly simplified workflow. For all other scenarios, for example, moving data from a database to DB2 for z/OS, this tool supports the MTK particularly in the area of the high speed data movement. Using this tool, as much as 4TB of data havebeen moved in just three days. AGUI provides an easy to use interface for the novice while the command line API is often preferred by the advanced user.

First, download the tool from the Download section to your target DB2 server. Additional steps are required to move data to DB2 for z/OS. (Check for the latest available version of the tool.)
Once you have downloaded the IBMDataMovementTool.zip file, extract the files into a directory called IBMDataMovementTool on your target DB2server. Aserver side install (on DB2) is strongly recommended to achieve the best data movement performance.
Next steps from IBM
DB2 V9.7 should be installed on your target server if you are enabling an Oracle application to be run on DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. Java™ version 1.5 or higher must be installed on your target server. To verify your current Java version, runjava version command. By default, Java is installed as part of DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows in \SQLLIB\java\jdk (Windows) or /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/java/jdk (Linux). Table 1.
