Roger Miller Biography

Roger Miller has worked nearly a quarter century on DB2 development, product design and strategy. He often helps customers to use the product, answers many questions and presents frequently to user groups. He was a customer for ten years before working on many facets of DB2, ranging from overall design issues to SQL, languages, install, security, audit, standards, performance, concurrency, and availability. We sometimes call him a jack of all DB2 trades and a master of several.

Planning your migration to DB2 9 for z/OS and V8
DB2 for z/OS Version 8 and 9 (V8 and V9) have many new features. This presentation will discuss migrating to V8 and V9, preparing to use the new functions. We assume that you know DB2 V8 and V9. We'll emphasize process and recommendations from many other customers, with pointers to more information. The content of this session will focus on the tasks of the person who installs DB2.
