Just one of many reasons to attend IBM Information On Demand (IOD) 2012 is the launch of the new limited edition book, IBM DB2: The Past, Present and Future.
Next year marks the 30th anniversary of the birth of DB2, and this book celebrates its unceasing value to businesses then, now, and in the years to come. It's packed with rich technical information to help you manage your business systems and maximize ROI, and features contributions and insights from esteemed DB2 technical experts.
Don Haderle (also known as "the father of DB2") shares his first-hand perspective on the history and growth of DB2. This is followed by a detailed overview on the planning stages of migrating to IBM DB2 10 from IBM Distinguished Engineer John Campbell, a technical overview of DB2 Optimiser from Senior Technical Lead Terry Purcell, and much, much more.
Find out why DB2 is still growing after 30 years and how it is helping our customers reduce costs and grow. (And if you'll be at IOD, don't miss the book signing event on Monday, October 22nd from 12:30-1:30pm at the IOD bookstore.)
