Just a quick note this morning to let folks in Zurich, Switzerland and London, UK know about a three-day performance workshop for DB2 V8 coming up in June. The workshop is based on the IBM Redbook DB2 for z/OS Version 8 Performance Topics, SG24-6465. If you are looking for an overview and update of performance-related issues you can tackle with DB2 V8, consider this workshop. According to the redbook web site this workshop helps "you understand the performance implications of migrating from DB2 V7 to DB2 V8, highlights the key performance functions and sets the right expectations. It provides the type of information needed to evaluate the performance impact of DB2 V8 and the capacity planning needs."
Of course, this workshop information is directed mostly at my European readers... unless, of course, you are a USA reader with some extra travel budget and your manager will allow you to travel overseas!?!? (I know, I know, you can't even get budget to travel to Scranton, let alone Zurich...)
Here is the information for each:
