Triton Consulting, the UK's largest independent information management consultancy, is delighted to announce that two of its Directors have been invited to speak at the prestigious IDUG DB2 Technical Conference in Berlin, Germany, in November this year.
Taking place between the 4th and 9th of November, IDUG is described as 'the foremost independent, user-driven community that provides a direct channel to thousands of professional DB2 users across the globe'. There will be a comprehensive programme of technical education sessions throughout the week: Triton's Julian Stuhler, Director/Head of Solutions Delivery and Paul Stoker, Sales and Marketing Director, will be bringing their respective areas of expertise to the delegates.
On Tuesday 6th November at 2.15pm Julian, a previous IDUG Board Director and Past President, will present 'Memory Management In DB2 10 For z/OS'. He explains that 'with the advent of DB2 10 for z/OS, users are finally freed of the DBM1 virtual storage constraints that have been such a limiting factor for DB2 for z/OS scalability. Now the focus has to move from virtual to real memory management in order to maintain system performance and availability.' Julian will be looking at the major storage-related changes introduced by DB2 10 and providing practical advice on what and how to monitor in a DB2 10 for z/OS environment.
The presentation is aimed at Database Administrators and Systems Programmers with intermediate experience.
Julian is a Principal Consultant with Triton Consulting and has over 24 years' relational database experience. He possesses practical knowledge in many aspects of the IBM Information Management portfolio, including experience in application programming, database administration, technical architecture, performance tuning and systems programming. In 1999, Julian was invited to join the IBM Gold Consultants programme, used to recognise the contributions and influence of the world's 100 leading database consultants. In May 2008, Julian was recognised as one of IBM's inaugural Data Champions - acknowledging individuals with outstanding contributions to the data management community.
Julian is an IBM Redbook author and won the Best Overall Speaker award at the 2000 International DB2 User Group meeting. He has lectured widely on DB2 subjects throughout Europe and the US - his presentation in Berlin should not be missed.
On Thursday 8th November at 9.45am Paul will showcase 'Mission Impossible: Improving DB2 Scalability, Availability AND performance While Doubling Workload'. As the lead DB2 DBA for the Digital Banking Division of a large UK-based retail bank, Paul describes that 'in a recent project, the task of dramatically improving scalability and availability of a DB2 z/OS hosted 24 by 7 internet banking application was demanding enough, within a one year timeframe. The additional complexity of a doubling in transaction and customer numbers, whilst maintaining performance, made this an even more challenging assignment.' Paul will be sharing his experience of working on the project, discussing design, strategy and implementation, including Data Sharing, high insert performance and dynamic workload balancing'.
The presentation is aimed at Database Administrators and Systems Programmers at beginner and intermediate levels.
Paul is also a Principal Consultant with Triton Consulting and has worked with DB2, predominantly on the mainframe platform, for over 20 years. Paul's sectors of expertise include banking, insurance, central Government and telecoms. His roles have included Infrastructure Architect, Physical Data Modeller, Development DBA, Performance Tuning Specialist, System Programmer and Product DBA.
