Hello everyone. It's been a bit quiet here over the past few
weeks, with lots of people busy planning their upgrades and others
traveling to Anaheim for the IDUG North America conference a the
beginning of May.
I wanted to fill you in on some recent progress and news for this forum:
- At IDUG NA we held a Special Interest Group (SIG) dedicated to DB2 10 upgrade issues. This was very well attended, and a lively and informative debate ensued that covered many different areas of the upgrade process, justification, tools implications and several other areas (this information will included in the white paper discussed below).
- We also used the SIG to present some preliminary results from our upgrade survey. If you'd like to participate in this survey there is still two weeks before it closes - please go to http://www.esurveyspro.com/Survey.aspx?id=9526985a-d3c5-427a-9075-ad7c64101b17. It only takes a couple of minutes, and we'll be publishing the full results here in early June.
- Work has begun on our "DB2 10 living white paper", which will be a constantly-evolving document containing useful links, shared experiences and upgrade justifications. The initial version of this will be made available via the IDUG website in early June.
- We just exceeded 100 members in this group, but there are sure to be even more people out there that could benefit and contribute. Please continue to let people know of the existence of this group so we can include as many views and experiences as possible.
That's it for now. Please don't forget that we have some very experienced IBMers, consultants and users monitoring this forum so if you have any questions or issues connected with your DB2 10 upgrade please post them here so you can get some expert advice and benefit the rest of the community in the process.
Finally, please don't forget to complete that DB2 10 Upgrade survey, at http://www.esurveyspro.com/Survey.aspx?id=9526985a-d3c5-427a-9075-ad7c64101b17
