See You in Lisbon for the EMEA IDUG DB2 Tech Conference!

This year the IDUG EMEA DB2 Tech Conference is being held in Lisbon, Portugal from October 1st through October 5th. Lisbon is a beautiful city with a lot to see and do, so you can plan for a great week of DB2 and analytics education... and then follow it up with a visit to truly remarkable city.

Whether or not you care about vacationing is irrelevant, though, because a week at an IDUG event is always an educational and enjoyable time. If you’ve ever attended an IDUG conference before then you know all about the fantastic educational and entertainment opportunities that IDUG offers. Of course there will be a ton of informative technical sessions on all of the latest and greatest DB2 technologies and features. 

There are a couple of great keynote sessions scheduled this year. Daniel Hernandez, offering leader with IBM Analytics, will discuss Data Without Limits. He’ll talk about how IBM is changing Db2 like never before including the latest news on Db2, Db2 for z/OS and the Db2 Analytics Accelerator, as well as providing demonstrations of new solutions. And the closing keynote is from Jonathan Adam, vice president and general manager of ZSolutions at BMC Software. Jonathan will present Continuing Digital Business Challenges — Finding Value in your data..., an overview of how to achieve business advantage in the digital age.

And then there are those technical presentations delivered by IBMers, consultants, and your colleagues. These are the heart and soul of an IDUG conference. Where else can you find four days and six tracks of data and DB2-related education? Check out the agenda to see what is on tap!

I will be busy this year at IDUG spending time with the DB2 gold consultants, many of whom will be at the conference to present, mingle, and learn.  I will also be delivering a vendor-sponsored presentation for LogOn Software with intriguing title of How to Accelerate DB2 SQL Workloads... Without DB2. Whatever could that mean? You'll have to join me on Monday at 2:00 PM in Room VITIS!

And don't forget to download the mobile app for the conference to help you navigate all the opportunities available to you!

The IDUG DB2 Tech Conference is the place to be to learn all about DB2 from IBMers, gold consultants, IBM champions, end users, and more. With all of this great stuff going on why wouldn't you want to be there!?!?
