    Objective 3: Learn how to link end user experiences to DBA activities
    Objective 4: Detect DB2 from a C-level perspective
    Objective 5: Start to think from the end user

    Abstract:  Although the DBA’s tuning efforts often result in both a decrease of CPU consumption and end user response times, the percption of DBA activities at the C-level sometimes is more of the kind “why didn’t they do that before?”.
    This presentation helps you to better understand the C-level perspective and shows you how we managed to improve the image of the DBA team from a reactive team of techies to a proactive team that is directly involved in improving the business results.
