What Do I Do Next Now That Migration to z/OS v9 Has Been In For A Few Months.

The migration of z/OS v9 has been in for a few months, the system side things have settled down and now it's time to start taking advantage of all the new fun things that v9 has to offer. My first thought, as should be yours as well was to go to the Tech LIbrary and see what presentaions are availble.  In the 2009 NA Tech Conference I found several excellent presentations that were interesting and helpfull.

 

Roger Miller's --.What's New in DB2 9 for z/OS? (A04)

We discuss the latest news about DB2 for z/OS V8, including the IBM System z9 Integrated Information Processor or zIIP and new z9 processors. Then the discussion will move DB2 9 for z/OS, with XML and SQL that is more consistent across the DB2 family. Utility enhancements help with new function, more LOB and XML support, better performance and improved availability, removing the BUILD2 step from online reorg. DB2 9 enhances DB2's ability to handle new web and enterprise applications. DB2 9 improves the ability to handle new applications with XML, large objects, and many SQL and security improvements. DB2 9 builds upon and extends DB2 traditional strengths and the ground-breaking V8 in many areas: online schema evolution, Unicode, XML, DB2 family SQL, utilities, security and 64-bit virtual storage.
