IThis is a very exciting time for me to be writing this message. You will, no doubt, have seen the announcement from IBM for DB2 10 on LUW. There are some great features available in this release and I am sure many of you are looking forward to using this new product. At the IDUG DB2 Tech Conference
This month IDUG is looking at a topic close to many of your hearts - DB2 for z/OS migration. As the DB2 for z/OS V8 EOS date approaches, it is a key driver to migrating to either DB2 9 or DB 10. It's always interesting to discuss with management which release is the best fit for your organization. D
A belated happy new year to you all. I am very excited about the forthcoming year for IDUG. We have three great conferences taking place in Denver, Colorado, USA, Sydney, Australia and Berlin, Germany.
Writing this entry on Christmas Eve, it seems appropriate to take a look back at the year. Yet it feels strange to do so as I am half way through my term as IDUG President and will be writing my May entry looking back at my year as President as well.
There was great education at the 2011 IDUG DB2 Tech Conference in Prague, Czech Republic. The week started with a fantastic keynote from Curt Cotner and Namik Hrle. It really got me thinking about some changes we can expect to see in the future.
