A Preview of the New DB2

On Nov. 3, IBM is providing a sneak peek at the next release of DB2 for z/OS. I was fortunate enough to be briefed by the IBM lab last year on the new features and functions are being targeted for delivery in the upcoming release. It's an impressive list.

Beyond all the great new functionality, one primary reason I think most companies will want to move to DB2 X for z/OS is the potential to reduce CPU cost by about 5 percent simply by installing it. This number comes from IBM.

If you're involved with DB2 as a database administrator, IT manager, systems architect, application developer, application architect, system administrator and systems programmer -- or if you'd just like to learn more -- check out this webinar. Again, it's set for Tuesday, Nov. 3, with an 11 a.m. EST start time.

IBMer Jeff Josten is the presenter. If you've not heard him, he's a fantastic speaker.
