Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Once again, Judge Susan Visser, IBM, wrote a terrific blog about today's show. Check it out! No doubt, today's show will end up being among the Top 10 downloads of 2013! Here is a brief review of our finalists and their topics:

  • Ember, The Fragmentation of DBADM in DB2 9.7
  • Mohankumar, Simple steps for substantially reducing report execution time
  • Eric, High Availability and Disaster Recovery with DB2 10.1
  • Chris, Enabling federation between DB2 for LUW and DB2 for iSeries
  • Renu, New moving vehicle DB2MOVE with "more power and less gas"

  • Armando, SQL Performance Tuning Part 2 - using partitioning, MQTs, and utilities
  • Sanjay, Temporal Data Management in DB2 for z/OS
  • Sreeharsha, "DML Scanner"
Unfortunately, Juliano did not join us today and we missed his presentation "The 8 Selects that ALL DB2 DBAs would like to have." Darn!
