Agenda for December 5th, 2007
8:45 - 9:00 Welcome

9:00 - 10:15 The Impact of Regulatory Compliance on Database
Presenter: Craig Mullins, NEON Enterprise Software, Inc

As governmental regulation and control expands organizations need to deploy
better controls to ensure quality data and properly protected database
systems. Governmental regulations (Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, BASEL II , etc.)
are increasing in number, and many of them impact the way organizations
must treat their data. This presentation will offer an overview of the
regulations and their impact on database administration.

10:15 - 10:30 Break

10:30 - 11:45 Database Trends 2008
Presenter: Craig Mullins, NEON Enterprise Software, Inc

Database Management Systems are at the heart of most modern computer
applications. Whether you use DB2, Oracle, SQL Server, or some other DBMS,
chances are you rely on a database to store, protect, and serve your
organization's data. But database systems and related technology are
changing rapidly. This presentation will take a look at the major trends
impacting DBMSs in order to help clarify all of that new stuff your DBMS
does - or will do very soon - and what these changes mean to you.

11:45 - 12:30 Lunch and Learn
Presenter: Henry Parnell, Lumigent Technologies
Topic: Alternative technological solutions to collect reliable
audit trail data

12:30 - 1:45 Managing DB2 Performance in a Multi-Platform Environment
Presenter: Jim Wankowski, Quest Software

Obtaining optimal performance from your DB2 applications is a multi-faceted
exercise. DB2 performance optimization cannot be limited to simply tuning
SQL. You need to have an understanding of how factors such as memory,
physical design, and maintenance can affect performance. This presentation
will compare the architectures of DB2 z/OS and LUW, and show you what to
monitor and how to identify and resolve the most common areas of
performance bottlenecks.

1:45 - 2:00 Closing
