DB2 12 for z/OS - an IDUG Perspective

In February 2016 the IDUG DB2 12 Editorial Committee was formed, comprised of volunteers from IDUG’s worldwide community of DB2 users and consultants. Working alongside IBM's formal Early Support Program (ESP), the Editorial Committee gained valuable insight into exactly what makes the new release tick. This White Paper contains their findings, including practical experiences and independent evaluations of the new features.

DB2 12 contains a large number of enhancements, but some will be of more interest than others depending on your job role and background. We have organised this paper according to the features likely to be most applicable to each of the three major technical roles in a DB2 for z/OS environment: Systems Programmers, Database Administrators and Application Developers.
