built-in and OLAP functions are not stored in the catalogs hence SPSS modeller is facing challenges fetching

Incompatibility between using Netezza and Db2 products.  Both UDFs (User Defined Function) and built-in functions and OLAPs are available in the case of Netezza, but in the case of IIAS (IBM Integrated Analytics System) / Db2 only UDF is available .This doesn't mean that  SPSS Modeler is always unable to translate its data processing to built-in functions, as SQL pushback can translate data processing implicitly. Built-in functions are unavailable
