The next meeting of the New England DB2 User's Group will occur on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at our usual haunt (The Publick House Sturbridge Mass) .We have an excellent lineup of speakers and 4 very timely presentations.
Registration will be $40 again. The third man in rule is in effect. The third person from a customer company who attends gets in free. Its up to you to figure out who gets the third man in penalty. Sorry, this discount is not available for vendors.
Please register by November 14th to help us and the hotel plan better.
Here are the highlights:
Milan Babiak (IBM) will brief us on what we, as DBA's, need to know about Cognos. Cognos now represents our largest reporting workload; we aren't unique.
Leon Katsnelson (IBM) will introduce us to the NOSQL movement. This model does not mean VSAM rides again; Its important enough that IBM purchased Cloudant. Leon will explain how it fits into a DB2 world.
Sheryl Larsen (IBM) will present an overview of the DB2 structures, particularly those now available in Version 11, you can use to improve performance while minimizing development costs.
Jim Brogan (IBM) will present the first of 3 presentations on planning the Version 11 transition. He will present the remaining parts at each of the next 2 meetings. First up, he will provide the highlights of Version 11.
Please help us keep our costs down by pre-registering. To pre-register please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment is at the door either in cash or check; the check should be made out to the Publick House.
