"On return from the Summit, I tackled an RPG program that was using the old standard Op code READS, reading about 6 tables from beginning to end with a total of about 164.5 million rows. This program was running in about an hour and 24 minutes. I rewrote the program using embedded SQL and now the program runs in 3 minutes and 45 seconds. So, I guess this stuff works OK, you think?"
