DB2 12 embraces the concept of continuous delivery to ship valuable functionality through the maintenance stream without the burden of adopting a new release in the process. DB2 12 continues to focus on our key precepts of reliability, availability, and security as well as CPU reduction through the exploitation of central storage.

Lessons Learned from 360 Studies
During many trips domestically and abroad the DB2 SWAT team notices patterns in the issues experienced by our customers. Trends in technology and newer releases of DB2 can lead customers into situations that would not have appeared just a few years prior. Currently topics such as real storage control, online release migration, zIIP capacity, preventative service, distributed access, and mass data recovery have garnered the attention of our team, and warrant a further discussion.
