Presentation Abstracts

"DB2 Performance... What's your Strategy?"

Do you have the people, tools and processes in place to routinely review your DB2 environment to ensure it is performing optimally? Or does DB2 performance take a back seat in favor of other priorities until you get a phone call, text message or e-mail indicating there is a DB2 performance issue? Do you have service-level agreements or performance targets in place which clearly establish when you have a DB2 performance issue? This presentation will help you understand how to establish a DB2 performance baseline and develop a monitoring and tuning strategy.

"DB2 9 for z/OS Migration Planning and Experiences"

This session will share customer migration experience, including lessons learned, surprises and pitfalls. It will provide hints and tips, address some myths, provide additional planning information and details on new enhancements.
