DB2 10 will cease to be supported by IBM from September 30th 2017. Those organisations who are still running DB2 10 now have less than a year to move off this release and upgrade to DB2 11. An average upgrade cycle can be anything from 12-18 months elapsed which means that anyone still in the planning stages or perhaps pre-planning really have a tight window of opportunity to complete the upgrade.
There is a huge list of great reasons for organisations to upgrade to DB2 11, just a few of them include:
– CPU reductions
– Temporal Data Enhancements
– pureXML Enhancements
– Data sharing performance enhancements
However, the most pressing reason to kick-off an upgrade project if it is not already in progress is the looming September 2017 deadline.
