The International DB2 Users Group (IDUG) is pleased to partner with CA to
deliver a free Webcast by renowned presenter Phil Grainger, Sr. Principal
Product Manager. This live event will run approximately 60 minutes and
participants will have the opportunity to pose questions to the presenter.
Capacity is limited, so register early.

About the Webcast:

Each new version of DB2 brings improvements in performance, and DB2 9 is no
different. This, the latest in the DB2 9 for z/OS webcast series from CA
and IDUG, looks at these improvements in more detail. During the webcast,
we will consider utility CPU time reductions, histogram statistics, better
page range screening, REOPT(AUTO), improvements in indexing, varying length
row enhancements and sequential insert relief, among other items.

About the Presenter:

Phil Grainger, Sr. Principal Product Manager, CA, has more than 17 years
experience with DB2, starting in 1987 with DB2 Version 1.2. Since then he
has worked with all versions, including Version 8. Beginning as a DBA for
one of the largest users of DB2 in the UK, Phil moved to PLATINUM
technology and then to his present role as Product Management Director for
CA solutions for DB2. Phil has always been a keen supporter of user groups
and is a regular speaker at CA events, as well as independent industry
events. He currently serves as the CA representative on the European IDUG
