Many of you will remember the first release of IBM® DB2®, launched in 1983, which marked the birth of the relational database. In 1983, there were many skeptics about the relational database. Thirty years later, it is still growing stronger and more valuable to businesses, and DB2 is still the market leader.

DB2 on z/OS®, or System z®, continues to deliver and meet the expectations of Fortune 100 CIOs and CxOs by improving operational efficiencies, reducing costs, and enabling businesses to adapt quickly to support business growth — all without sacrificing the resiliency required for today’s demanding business requirements.

Join us for this complimentary webcast and hear from Jeff Josten, IBM DB2 Chief Architect, as he shares the latest DB2 10 customer experiences with its new features and functions, including the IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator and updates on DB2 synergy with zEnterprise® EC12. You’ll also get a glimpse into the future and IBM plans for the next release, DB2 11. It continues the DB2 history of addressing current challenges that organizations are facing, such as keeping pace with higher user expectations and, at the same time, adjusting to budget cuts. Jeff will also review the demand for more business analytics, and why it is now more important than ever to leverage existing investments for that competitive edge.

If your data resides on DB2 for z/OS — it’s a great time to exploit and maximize your investment.

Join us after the webcast for a live question-and-answer session. The webcast will also be available for replay after the event.
