IDUG EMEA 2016 Roundup

The Triton team has (just about) recovered from the trip to Brussels and are finally getting their voices back after singing far more songs than they ever imagined they would at any event, let alone an IDUG Technical Conference. Not only did the Geeks have an impromptu karaoke session at the Triton party, they also rounded up the week with another singalong at the fabulous IBM party on Wednesday evening, which included a memorable rock ‘n’ roll band that no one can actually remember the name of!

It’s been said a few times already but one of the things that won’t be forgotten about this year’s conference is the technical content. This year’s technical grid was considered one of the best, so well done to all the IDUG committee members for providing such a great educational programme. Big congratulations to Triton’s Head of Midrange and Managed Services, Iqbal Goralwalla. Iqbal was this year’s IDUG Conference Chairperson and was kept extremely busy during the conference and leading up to the event. As you can see Iqbal took great pleasure in officially opening the event.

Well done also to Triton Director Julian Stuhler who was awarded the Top DB2 Consultant 2016 by IBM at their event this year.  Julian received the award due to his contributions to the DB2 12 for z/OS launch which included leading the IDUG white paper team, writing a business value white paper, and participating in the launch webcast.

We don’t mind saying that we think this year’s Triton party was a huge success, so well done us! As always we like to share a few memories of the night with all those that attended and others within DB2 community who were unable to attend.



Congratulations to Dragica Smintic from Zagreb, our competition winner

Why not take a look at next year’s conference and consider submitting an abstract and become more involved in the DB2 Community by sharing your experiences. The call for presentations is open already!

We hope to see you all again next year!
