Looking to upgrade to DB2 9 for z/OS and improve productivity and reduce
costs? Hear directly from one of our customers: UK Land Registry

administrators and managers, systems programmers

Technical level: Intermediate

For any business that depends heavily on databases, continuous availability
is essential. And with shrinking budgets, that information needs to be used
effectively to help drive business — without introducing risk. Your data,
and the cost of managing it, is part of what keeps your business
competitive. If you’re looking to upgrade technology to reduce costs, find
out how one business did it and how it is benefitting today.

Listen to this complimentary webcast and learn how Land Registry, a UK
government organization, successfully upgraded to DB2® 9 and is reaping the
business benefits. DB2 9 for z/OS® includes major enhancements to help
reduce workload and improve employee productivity that leads to a more
efficiently run business and direct positive impact to the bottom line. This
presentation will take you through the journey from start to finish,
highlighting the risk-mitigating activities that were undertaken during the
project life cycle that contributed to a virtually impact-free migration.

The topics explored are:

* The business drivers and perceived benefits for upgrading
* Planning, preparation, testing and other prerequisite activities
* The upgrade itself, including problems encountered and lessons learned
* Benefits realization and early experience with the new functions

Speakers: John Campbell, Distinguished Engineer, DB2 for z/OS Development,
IBM Silicon Valley Laboratory and Maria McCoy, DB2 System and Application
Services Manager, UK Land Registry
