Craig Mullins has extensive experience in the DBMS field having worked as an
application developer, DBA, and instructor with multiple DBMS products
including DB2, Oracle, and SQL Server. Additionally, Craig worked as a
Research Director with Gartner Group covering the field of database
administration, is the author of two books: "DB2 Developerís Guide" (the
industry-leading book on DB2 for z/OS) and "Database Administration". He also
has written & published hundreds of articles on database technology. You can

This presentation will offer a series of informative tips, techniques, and
guidelines for managing and accessing DB2 databases. But the information will
be conveyed in a novel way - as a series of Top Ten lists. Sort of like the
lists David Letterman might write if he were a DBA.
1. Application, Database, & System Performance Tuning
2. SQL Guidelines
3. Database Design Guidelines
4. Discussion of the Top New V8 Features
5. DBA Communication Guidelines
Presentation Category: Intermediate
Presentation Platform: DB2 UDB for z/OS
Navigating the performance, management, and administration of DB2 UDB databases
and applications requires knowledge and discipline. DBAs would do well to
marry the Chinese philosophy of Tao with their job responsibilities to achieve
balance and fulfillment. This presentation examines this concept and offers
guidance how these seemingly dissimilar concepts complement one another.
1. A Short Introduction to Tao
2. Be the Database: Tao and DB2 UDB
3. Wu Wei - Doing More by Doing Less
4. Yin and Yang - Achieving Balance
5. The Nature of DB2 UDB-Different Ways of Looking at DB2 UDB
Presentation Category: Beginner
Presentation Platform: DB2 UDB for z/OS
