Baltimore/Washington DB2 Users' Group Meeting
Date: December 14, 2005 (Wednesday)
Location: Sheraton Columbia Inn
10207 Wincopin Circle
Columbia, MD
(410) 730-3900

Agenda:

8:30 - 9:00 Registration

9:00 - 10:15 The DB2 Top Ten Lists
Craig S. Mullins

This presentation offers advice, guidelines, and observations on DB2
performance, administration, and development. The information is presented
in a humorous fashion in the format of a series of Top Ten lists – kind of
like if David Letterman were a DBA. This presentation was voted as one of
the Top 10 presentations of IDUG in 2004

10:15 - 10:30 Coffee Break

10:30 - 11:45 Database Trends
Craig S. Mullins

Database Management Systems are at the heart of most modern computer
applications. Whether you use DB2, Oracle, SQL Server, or some other DBMS,
chances are you rely on a database to store, protect, and serve your
organization's data. But what is a DBMS really? Of course, there is a
simple answer at the core that most of us know - but database technology
is changing very rapidly. This presentation will take a look at the major
trends impacting DBMSs in order to help clarify all of that new stuff your
DBMS does - or will do very soon - and what these changes mean to DBAs.

11:45 - 12:45 Lunch provided by BMC Software

12:45 – 3:30 DB2 and Storage Management, a Guide to Surviving a Perfect
Marriage
John Iczkovits

Does your Storage Administrator sometimes leave you wondering? Do you
sometimes ask the following questions:
1. How do I know I have enough DASD space for my DB2 data?
2. I hear about different DASD model types, what does it
mean?
3. How does DB2 work with SMS, and why should I care?
4. How does fragmentation effect my DB2 volumes?
5. Why do I need to care about items in the VTOC and ICF
catalog?
6. My shop has a mix of DASD (IBM and third party). Isn’t
disk just a disk?
7. There are SnapShot, FlashCopy, and TimeFinder; are they
all the same thing?
8. What are extended format data sets, and how can they
help me?

Come and join this session and get answers to your Storage needs
