A few months ago, we put together a short survey to measure DB2 10 upgrade intentions across the IDUG community. Twenty DB2 users from around the world were kind enough to take the time to respond, and the results make for interesting reading. Here are a couple of highlights:
- Half of the respondents planning an upgrade to DB2 10 were at V8 and considering a skip migration, with the other half already running DB2 9 and planning a "normal" single-relase upgrade.
- The biggest single barrier to the upgrade is cited as being resource constraints, with 25% of the respondents facing this issue.
Full survey results to date are attached to this post.
The survey has now been re-opened, so if you have yet to participate please take 5 minutes to do so by clicking on this link. We'll re-publish the updated results in a couple of months time.
