DB2 version 8 to version 9

DB2 version 8 to version 9
Hi folks!

Merry Christmas to everyone in and out of the office! I hope everyone is enjoying holidays.

Our company is thinking about two possibilities: migrating to version 9 at the beginning of Febrary or freezing version 8 and in two years time, more or less, migrate directly
from version 8 to version 10, if people experiences are good.

What about your experiences migrating from version 8 to version 9? Have you notice any CPU reduction? Any application enhancements applicable?

Is it worthwhile to migrate to version 9 or to wait two years till version 10?

All suggestions will be welcome!!

Thanks a lot!!!!

In my view it is best to stay reasonably current and upgrade on a very regular basis.

1. It is difficult to know what the future holds so as the saying goes strike while the iron is hot.
2. Even if nothing happens in the intervening years skills deterioate. And a nother saying Use it or loose it.

While I was at Candle being its IMS advocate and the father of Omegamon DB2 my mentor and also frequently my boss was Jim Woodhill. Jim was fond of asking the question
"Given the state of todays aircraft automation can usually land them. Why then do the pilots insist on landing them themselfs?"

Jim's favorite answer is how would you like to be on a plane needing to do an emerency landing and the most recent total pilot controled landing was several years ago?"

Happy holidays and may all your landings be safe.

Hi folks!

Merry Christmas to everyone in and out of the office! I hope everyone is
enjoying holidays.

Our company is thinking about two possibilities: migrating to version 9 at the
beginning of Febrary or freezing version 8 and in two years time, more or less,
migrate directly

from version 8 to version 10, if people experiences are good.

What about your experiences migrating from version 8 to version 9? Have you
notice any CPU reduction? Any application enhancements applicable?

Is it worthwhile to migrate to version 9 or to wait two years till version 10?

All suggestions will be welcome!!

Thanks a lot!!!!

You definitely don't want to wait 2 years to go from V8 to V10.
End of service for V8 is in April 2012, which is only 1 1/3 years
from now.
