More on Migration Planning

Last week I mentioned IBM's free DB2 10 migration planning workshops. IDUG has its own offering for those who will be attending the group's upcoming conference.

The title of IDUG's workshop, "DB2 10 for z/OS Migration Planning," shouldn't mislead you. It's not just for systems programmers; it's designed for everyone who works with DB2 for z/OS, including application developers, data architects, database adminstrators, IT managers, new users.
