The DB2 equivalent is the IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL() function.

" ...was first available in FixPak 3 of Version 7.1.
The IDENTITY_VAL_LOCAL function is a non-deterministic function that returns the most recently assigned value for an identity column, where the |assignment occurred as a result of a single row INSERT statement using a VALUES clause. The function has no input parameters."

For more detail, see the DB2 release notes.
