We are delighted to announce that three members of the Triton Consulting team will be heading to Lisbon this year to present at Europe’s biggest and most prestigious DB2 technical conference, IDUG EMEA*. This year’s conference will take place at the Epic Sana Hotel from 1st – 5th October 2017 and will include five days of educational sessions, half and full day workshops and in excess of 100 one hour technical sessions.
“We are thrilled that all three members of the Triton team who submitted an abstract have been selected to present this year. It is always such a great privilege for us to be able to share our knowledge and recent experiences with fellow members of the DB2 Community at such a renowned event.” Carol Davis-Mann, Marketing Manager.
As in previous years Triton’s presentations will cover both DB2 LUW and DB2 z/OS topics.
Julian Stuhler, Solutions Delivery Director at Triton Consulting, is well known in the DB2 community for his excellent presentations and his status as an IBM Gold Consultant. Julian will be presenting on Total Recall: Exploiting In-Memory Features in DB2 12 for z/OS. Julian will provide an overview of the ways in which DB2 is evolving to exploit more real memory, reduce CPU and deliver improved price/performance, with a specific emphasis on exploiting new DB2 12 in-memory features such as contiguous buffer pools and Fast Traverse Blocks (FTBs).
James Gill, Principal Consultant will share his vast knowledge of REST API to the IDUG audience. James’ presentation REST Easy with DB2 For z/OS – Services Made Simple will provide an overview of the new capabilities, how to create and consume REST services using it and what methods can be used to achieve this.
Mark Gillis, Senior Consultant at Triton Consulting will also be presenting this year. Mark’s session on DB2 11 Performance: BLU Hits and Misses will examine some ‘real’ workloads and a comparison between 10.5 and 11.1 on the processing done ‘under the covers’. Mark will also look at some of the inevitable gotchas and pitfalls.
