The Baltimore/Washington DB2 Users Group DB2 for LUW Track The DB2 for LUW track is back for September with presenters from IBM’s Toronto Lab, Silicon Valley Lab and a panel of DB2 Gold Consultants ready to answer YOUR questions on DB2 performance tuning. Join us for great session content and networking! Date: Time: Location: Registration: Fees: Wednesday, September 15, 2010 9:00am – 3:30pm (registration opens at 8:30) Sheraton Columbia, 10207 Wincopin Circle, Columbia, Maryland, 410-730-3900 HERE Pre-registered members: $30 Pre-registered non-members: $40 At-the-door for members: $40 At-the-door for non-members: $50 Agenda: 9:00 – 10:15 Upgrading to DB2 9.7 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows - What You need to Know Presenter: Bob Harbus, IBM DB2 9.7 is the latest DB2 release on the Linux, UNIX, and Windows (LUW) platforms and provides exciting new technology. This session will discuss upgrading to DB2 9.7 for LUW from previous versions of DB2 LUW and will point out and discuss areas to be aware of and prepare for as well as listing many of the changes that you need to be aware of before and after an upgrade to DB2 9.7. 10:30 – 11:45: Building and Managing Efficient Data Access to DB2 Presenter: Vijay Bommireddipalli, IBM Managing performance of your mission critical applications can be a challenge, especially for growing workloads. In this session we will look at options for increasing throughput and reducing CPU utilization for new and existing Java and .Net applications. We will look at options available to stabilize the performance of applications. Finally, you will also see how to proactively avoid problems by taking advantage of database best practices during the development phase. 12:45 – 2:00 DB2 for LUW Tuning: Ask the Experts Panelists: David Beulke, James Sobieski, Frank Fillmore and Steve Mazer A panel of three IBM DB2 Gold Consultants will join us to share their recommendations to address DB2 for LUW performance issues. Members attending are encouraged to bring their toughest challenge to the panel to see how the experts would approach it. Perhaps they will simply validate the process your team has followed, but MAYBE they will suggest another option that will direct you to the solution. The format will be simple: questions submitted will be answered by each panel member in turn; questions may be submitted in advance to [email protected] and questions received in advance will be answered first. 2:15 – 3:30 Enabling Applications from Oracle to DB2 9.7 the Easy Way Presenter: Bob Harbus, IBM DB2 9.7 constitutes the biggest infusion of SQL features since DB2 V2.1. In this presentation Bob will introduce the main theme of DB2 9.7 which leads to a tenfold reduction in enablement costs for Oracle based applications to DB2.
