Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

100% of our studio audience learned something! I think that pretty much says it all! We've now had three shows in a row where 100% learned something!

Let's be frank. DB2 LUW Workload Manager provides a very robust infrastructure for managing SQL performance. ROBUST means there are lots of options and it isn't simple. During this show, I appreciated that Paul explained WLM in ways that actually made sense. He also provided information about new WLM features and capabilities in DB2 LUW 10.1.
