DB2 Enthusiasts Invited!



Join us Tuesday May 13, 2008, 8:00-10:30 am for technical insight into
DB2 topics that should interest everyone, including Application
Developers.



For our User Group meeting, Beth Hamel will present The Role of System z
in the World of Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence.



Beth Hamel is an IBM Senior Technical Staff Member and is currently the
worldwide product manager for Data Warehouse on System z. Beth has held
jobs in IMS, DB2, database replication and performance and has consulted
with hundreds of customers worldwide.



The Role of System z in the World of Data Warehouse and Business
Intelligence: Growing demand for access to near real-time data and the
need to access operational data sources are driving changes in our
customers' data warehousing processes. Businesses who have long run
their core application processes (and stored much of their enterprise
data) on z/OS are looking to maximize their investment and improve their
overall TCO by expanding the role of their mainframes to take on more of
their enterprise's WH/BI needs. System z's exceptional reliability,
availability and security-coupled with the addition of extensive
warehouse related capabilities in DB2 V8 and V9-have strengthened its
position as a warehouse platform. This session will provide an overview
that answers the questions of why z?, when z? and what is available on
z? to leverage this platform and database in warehouse and BI solutions.

Seating is limited, please RSVP for this event at www.db2seattle.org
