SPEAKERS: Udo Brede (Quest Software)

Many DBAs are being required to support multiple DBMSes on multiple platforms. Many IT shops today are running a combination of Oracle and DB2 which is resulting in either having to cross train DBAs or hire new DBAs with expertise on the specific DBMS. The new Oracle compatibility features available in DB2 9.7 LUW brings these 2 worlds much closer together.
