8:45 Paul Bartak - IBM: SQL in DB2 UDB for z/OS V8 & DB2 9 for z/OS
DB2 UDB for z/OS V8 surpasses many barriers of the past. 64 bit processing and long names receive lots of press. As expected, DB2 continues to deliver business resiliency and qualities of service that lead the industry. But the SQL capabilities are significant as well. This trend continues with the previewed features due to be delivered in DB2 9 for z/OS. This session will cover the 8 & 9 features with a focus on application development items.

11:15 Richard Koch IBM: What's New in DB2 9 for LUW
DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (LUW) delivers new features that address the needs for your business today, whether those needs are integrating business data from across your organization, reducing IT costs, focusing limited IT resource on creating business value, or providing a secure and resilient information management system for your company's valuable information assets. Rich will cover many of the new features and enhancements that come with DB2 9 including the hybrid relational and XML data server, row compression, table partitioning, LBAC security, adaptive self-tuning memory, and much more.
