Craig S. Mullins is director of DB2 Technology Planning for BMC
Software. Mullins has extensive experience in the field of database
management, having worked as an application developer, a DBA, and an
instructor with multiple database management systems including DB2®,
Oracle and SQL Server. Additionally, Mullins worked as a research
director with the GartnerGroup covering the field of database
administration. He is the author of DB2 Developer's Guide, and he has
published over 100 articles on database technology.
Database Management Systems are at the heart of most modern computer
applications. Whether you use DB2, Oracle, SQL Server, or some other DBMS,
chances are you rely on a database to store, protect, and serve your
organization's data. But what is a DBMS really? Of course, there is a simple
answer at the core that most of us know - but database technology is
changing very rapidly. This presentation will take a look at the major
trends impacting DBMSs in order to help clarify all of that new stuff your
DBMS does - or will do very soon.
Jay Aiken has been with IBM for 29 years, and has had a checkered past:

Corporate Headquarters in Armonk, and with VTAM and
TCP/IP for the last ten years in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

infrastructure for connecting Web, Windows, UNIX, Linux, OS/2 and mobile

allow takeover from another host in the event of a failure
within the sysplex.
