In March 2013 the IDUG DB2 11 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 11 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.

NEW! You can now also download the paper in the open EPUB format suitable for e-readers here: http://www.idug.org/p/do/sd/sid=5879&type=0

In early March, the IDUG Content Committee randomly selected one contributor to the comments below for a free IDUG Technical Conference admission at either IDUG NA, IDUG Australasia or IDUG EMEA in 2014. Congratulations to Henrick Krackowski, winner of the IDUG white paper drawing. Thank you to all who participated.
