I'm Co-Presenting with a Couple of DB2 Experts at IDUG

I have the absolute pleasure of being able to co-present on a couple of great DB2 topics with two very knowledgeable and great speakers at this year's North American IDUG conference in Austin, TX. 

The first session is on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 1:00 PM (Session V02). In this session I will be co-presenting with Ulf Heinrich, the Director of Solutions Delivery at Software Engineering GmbH. Many of you know Ulf from his many technical DB2 presentation at past IDUG events and regional DB2 user groups. 

We will be talking about audit and compliance issues and how they impact your DB2 data and database assets. In particular, we will focus on database auditing, talking about what is needed, the various methods of auditing, and a new offering from SEG that you can use to run audit analytics against a long-term repository. If you need to be able to pinpoint who executed a query, when and from where, across your entire DB2 environment (and who doesn't?) then don't miss this presentation.

But that is not all... I also get the opportunity to co-present with Roy Boxwell. Many of you know Roy, too, from his many IDUG presentations and his valuable contributions to the DB2-L list server. Roy is a Senior Software Architect for DB2 product development at SEGUS Inc. He has been working for more than 30 years in the mainframe world, with 26 of these years strictly focused on the development of DB2 solutions in the realm of installation, migration, performance monitoring, and tuning.

Roy and I will be talking about DB2 release incompatibilities and how they impact your DB2 applications in our presentation on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 entitled Don't Let ICIs Put Your DB2 Application in the ICU!

This session will explain what an incompatible change is, offer assistance in how to identigy them and explain their potential impact on your applications. We'll also offer guidance on how to tackle the whole experience and learn how SEG’s Workload Expert technology makes it easier to manage and control these incompatible changes.

So, if you are going to IDUG this May in Austin, be sure to jot down the dates and times of these sessions so you don't miss them... and we'll see you there!
