Here at Triton Consulting we’ve received fantastic feedback from subscribers and customers to our article published on IT-Director.com back in April. Entitled “DB2 10 for z/OS: 23 Things To Think About NOW”, the article is a checklist of 23 areas to be worked on in preparation for the move to DB2 10 Conversion Mode.
The ‘aide memoir’ relates to both customers upgrading from DB2 V8 and also DB2 V9 . The article advises on how to incorporate the required changes into your routine maintenance activities, thus reducing risk and time taken during the upgrade process.
From implementing skip release upgrades, to removing, reformatting, reviewing and testing, the list really is a helpful guide to ensure that nothing is forgotten and you can upgrade in the easiest way possible.
Written by Triton Director Julian Stuhler, to date the piece has received a staggering 2400 views on IT-Director.com plus phenomenal click-through rates from LinkedIn and Twitter. Absolute proof that this really is a must-read article for anyone involved in DB2 10 implementations.
