Speaker: Roger Miller, DB2 for z/OS® Technical Evangelist, Designer and Architect, IBM Software Group

On Oct. 19, 2010, IBM announced DB2® 10. This latest release of DB2 delivers the most aggressive package of CPU savings and performance improvements from IBM in more than 20 years, and for the first time since 2001, IBM has offered skip release. With the increased cost of support software licenses, the launch of DB2 10 and the announcement of DB2 V8 end-of-service, many DB2 users are considering migration and need direction in planning the right migration strategy for their business. But how do you approach a migration strategy? When is the best time to start? Is skipping a release a good strategy? What are the costs versus benefits for any scenario?
Join us for this complimentary webcast as we address the most critical business issues to consider such a migration, so you can develop a strategy and plan for your own migration. We will describe the options available and some of the potential risks versus benefits. Overall, this webcast will help you choose the best path for your situation, and get ready to migrate to the new version. Whether you are ready to migrate now or you are still years away, planning should start now so that you can use your time more effectively and minimize the ultimate cost of upgrading.
All webcast attendees will receive a free copy of “Executive Report of Business Value of DB2 10 - Smarter Database for a Smarter Planet” by Julian Stuhler, an Internationally recognized DB2 consultant and analyst.
In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
Defining migration plan details for each component in your environment — servers, clients, applications and routines
Incorporating steps from previous migration plans, including internal procedures to request access, software installation or other system services
Understanding product restrictions and recommendations in order to plan your migration strategy
