SPEAKERS: Roger Miller (IBM Silicon Valley Lab)

We discuss the latest news about DB2 for z/OS V8, including the IBM System z9 Integrated Information Processor or zIIP and new z9 processors. Then the discussion will move DB2 9 for z/OS, with XML and SQL that is more consistent across the DB2 family. Utility enhancements help with new function, more LOB and XML support, better performance and improved availability, removing the BUILD2 step from online reorg. DB2 9 enhances DB2's ability to handle new web and enterprise applications. DB2 9 improves the ability to handle new applications with XML, large objects, and many SQL and security improvements. DB2 9 builds upon and extends DB2 traditional strengths and the ground-breaking V8 in many areas: online schema evolution, Unicode, XML, DB2 family SQL, utilities, security and 64-bit virtual storage.
