Competitive pressures are common across most enterprise shops and they pose similar challenges, including lowering operating costs through CPU cycle reductions while still building a strong foundation for SOA and XML initiatives, productivity improvements and better control of data as it grows in scale and complexity. DB2 10 for z/OS has made great strides in answering these challenges and more.

Join us for this complimentary webcast and learn how DB2® 10 for z/OS® gives you out-of-the-box savings through improved operational efficiencies that deliver something for everyone. Database administrators (DBAs) will find the greatest reduction in CPU for transactions and batch since V2R1 — 22 years ago. DB2 10 leverages the latest processor improvements, larger amounts of memory, solid-state disk and z/OS enhancements that enable simpler growth, more flexible security and many simplified tasks for the DBA.

Scalability improvements mean fewer outages and greater resiliency for critical business information. Schema evolution or data definition on demand as well as query performance manageability enhancements support improved availability. With additional enhancements to SQL and pureXML®, application developers can benefit from improved usability, performance and compatibility with other DB2 platforms that makes porting much easier.

In this session, you’ll learn about these major enhancements and more that will help you:

Speakers: Roger Miller, DB2 for z/OS technical evangelist, designer and architect and David Beulke, Dave Beulke & Associates.
