Run Your Legacy VM and VSE Applications on DB2 for z/Linux
Monday, March 27, 2006

Join presenter Frank C. Fillmore, Jr., President of The Fillmore Group
and DB2 Gold Consultant, as he explains how organizations running legacy VM
and VSE applications can protect their investment in custom business
applications, while expanding their database technical capabilities with DB2
for z/Linux. This live webcast will run approximately 90 minutes and
participants will have the opportunity to pose questions to the presenter.

About the Webcast
Many VSE and VM shops have thousands of legacy programs comprising
years of tested and reliable business logic. Their data might be locked up
in VSE VSAM files. Or it might be stored in DB2 Server for VSE&VM with its
limited features and functionality. Join us for this webcast where you will
learn how to store your enterprise data in DB2 on z/Linux, and continue to
run your legacy applications without modifications. Build new web-friendly
applications while preserving your investment in existing programming.

Attendees will learn about:
- Advantages of DB2 on z/Linux
- Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA) access to DB2 on
z/Linux from VSE and VM applications
- Exploiting Hipersockets
- VSE VSAM Redirector eBusiness Connector
- Software cost savings
- DB2 Server for VSE & VM Client
- Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) hardware processor

z/OS Data - Strategies to Extend Your Investment
Thursday, March 30, 2006

Join presenter John Schatko, Senior Consultant at The Fillmore Group,
as he explains how the use of tools like CICS VSAM Transparency and
Information Integrator Classic Federation are used to open non-relational
data to the enterprise, extending the value of legacy transaction processing
systems. This live webcast will run approximately 90 minutes and
participants will have the opportunity to pose questions to the presenter.

About the Webcast
Mountains of data remain locked in IMS and VSAM on z/OS. In this
session, attendees will be introduced to two tools that enable access to
this data without costly and time-consuming database migration and
application re-development.

Seminar attendees will learn how to:
- Migrate VSAM data to DB2 on z/OS without re-writing applications.
- Access IMS and VSAM data in place using the SQL API from Linux and
Windows programs.

You will see how alternative technologies like CICS VSAM Transparency
(VT) and Information Integrator Classic Federation (IICF) open up
non-relational data to the enterprise for web-enabled application
development and data warehousing.
