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.
What's New in DB2 for z/OS, V8 and DB2 V9 for z/OS
Roger Miller will discuss the latest news about DB2 for z/OS V8,
which has been generally available for over two years now. We
will discuss the new IBM System z9 Integrated Information
Processor or zIIP and new z9 processors. Then the discussion will
move DB2 V9 for z/OS. Data definition on demand extends the theme
of online schema revolution from V8. Additional Unicode
enhancements continue the work from V7 and V8. XML work across
the DB2 family is a much larger step than in V7 or V8. SQL
Procedures become more consistent across the family.
While V7 and V8 removed many differences from DB2 for Linux,
UNIX & Windows, V9 takes the next big step to improved consistency.
Utility enhancements help with new function, more LOB and XML
support, better performance and improved availability, removing
the BUILD2 step from online reorg. The vision for V9 is to enhance
DB2's ability to handle new and enterprise applications. V9
improves the ability to handle new applications with XML, large
objects, and many SQL and security improvements. V9 builds upon
and extends DB2 traditional strengths and the ground-breaking V8
in many areas: online schema evolution, Unicode, XML, DB2 family
SQL, utilities, security and 64-bit virtual storage.
Protect, Retain, and Comply with your DB2 Data
Regulatory compliance, security and audit are in the headlines
and growing much more important. This session will discuss
various practices for compliance and security. We will discuss
how you can make improvements. This is a new presentation, showing
how you can respond to increasing needs to protect security,
integrity and comply with regulations. We'll talk about using the
facilities you have and emphasize the improvements in DB2 for
z/OS V8 and DB2 V9 for z/OS as well as within a number of
