If your background in DB2 is anything like mine, you put the cart
before the horse. Meaning, you started designing tables or coding SQL
before you had even received any formal training in the fundamental
concepts of data and the management of it. It's an all-too-common
occurrence in our field.



One of the main problems with this situation is that it can lead to
inefficiencies and outright errors. And costly ones at that! These
inefficiencies and errors can waste your organization's computer
resources, time and money. It's not a trivial issue.



Well, now you have an opportunity to get some useful, detailed and
practical information to help you get your data under better control, no
matter what your experience level is. Plus, you'll learn how to avoid
getting swept up in the next IT fad before you've cast a critical eye on
it and decided if it really is to your benefit.



Join us on March 16th and 17th, as the Central PA DB2 Regional Users
Group will host a two-day class by internationally-renowned independent
technology analyst, consultant, author and lecturer Fabian Pascal on
data fundamentals. Whether you are an application developer, DBA, data
modeler or manage any one of those departments, you can't afford to miss
this opportunity.



Cost of the class is $125 per day. Registration deadline is
Wednesday, February 23rd, so don't delay!
