Join Julian Stuhler on Wednesday 6th November at 10:45 for his session on DB2 11 – Application Compatibility.
Despite compelling business benefits to upgrade to new versions of DB2 for z/OS, many customers are unable to schedule migration projects in a timely manner. Two of the major issues responsible for these delays are scheduling the necessary remedial work to address any application incompatibilities introduced in the new release, and obtaining suitable change slots to allow the upgrade itself to proceed.
This presentation provides an overview of the new features introduced in DB2 11 for z/OS that are intended to address these issues, and allow customers to upgrade their DB2 systems more quickly and with less disruption than before.
