Indiana DB2 Users Group meeting April 8 at Conseco - lunch provided - abstracts and reminder


Hello, all.

Here are the topics that we'll be discussing at our next meeting. Please
respond to me at [login to unmask email] to let me know if you're attending
so I can order lunch for everyone. No registration or membership is
required. Thanks.

The state of the Data Warehouse: Trends in the industry
This will be a review of trends and a look at where the industry is going.
While it's obvious that most warehouses are growing, what are the limits?
What are the pressures on the infrastructure and delivery teams? Lee will
discuss what is working for clients and he'll be our 'tour guide', showing
us where the 'rocks are in the river'.

Data Warehousing Implementation (Balanced Configuration Unit)
Lee will review IBM's current Balanced Warehouse portfolio on AIX, Linux,
and Windows. In addition, Lee will discuss a new module that IBM is
working on, to more prescriptively define the ETL Module.

Presentation Bio:
Lee is the Mid-West Team Lead for IBM's BI Best Practice Team and has led
hundreds of DB2 implementations in the last dozen years as well as 60+ TB
Class Data Warehouses. Lee has been with IBM over 26 years and is
certified in HW, SW, and Consulting.

Lee has presented Leadership and Technical topics in several countries,
both internal IBM and external forums. Lee has authored many white papers,
workshops, and planning session methodologies, including the precepts for
each chapter for a possible book called the "17 Laws of Building Terabyte
Class DB Systems".

We'll start off with a lunch at 12:30 followed by presentations from 1 -
4.
You may want to review the Balanced Warehouse website before the meeting to
gain some understanding of what it is.
