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.
