Just a brief blog post today to promote my upcoming speaking engagement at the New England DB2 User Group, in Sturbridge, MA (just outside of Boston). If you are in or around the area on June 18, 2015 be sure to stop by and participate in the meeting!
I will be giving two presentations (in the afternoon) that day. First up is my Big Data introductory presentation titled A Big Data Roadmap for the DB2 Professional. This was voted one of the Top Ten presentations at IDUG North America in 2014. My second presentation is a little bit different than what I normally present. It is titled Reduce Costs by Tuning DB2 to Reduce Your Rolling 4 Hour Average and in it I will walk through the components of subcapacity pricing and variable workload license charge... and how to use that knowledge to tune and reduce your monthly mainframe costs.
There are two other speakers that day, including a pitch from IBM on migrating to DB2 11 for z/OS and another presentation from the State of CT on IBM's PureData system.
So if you are going to be in the New England area be sure to put the NEDB2UG meeting on your agenda.
Hope to see you there!
