Data Studio Standalone lets you create and edit tables, views, triggers, SQL and XQuery queries, and other related goodness. It replaces the Control Center (but not the Health Center or the Task Center, which are staying around).
Data Studio IDE includes all the administrative functionality of Data Studio Standalone plus the ability to develop Java stored procedures. DB2 also integrates with .NET development thanks to DB2 Add-Ins for Visual Studio.
These free books are aimed to get anyone started with DB2. We've had lots of positive feedback from both university students and industry professionals who used them to learn the technology.
