IBM DB2 10.5 BLU Early Experiences and Best Practices

96% of our studio audience learned something! During this episode of The DB2Night Show™, our IBM Canada guests took us on an informational BLU adventure! Berni introduced this exciting new technology, Michael shared with us several early customer success stories, and then Jessica did an outstanding job of sharing current ( and evolving! ) BLU best practices! Our live audience asked several excellent questions at the end! Watch and learn...

A message from our sponsor:
DBI Software

During DBI's quick commercial break, we showed how DBI makes it easy to compare SQL workload performance between any two timeframes so that you can accurately ascertain the impacts of changes, fix packs, or new releases, or even compare the performance of queries running against classic versus BLU table! Don't fast forward through this educational commercial!

Our #1 Job is helping you look great!
Our #2 Job is giving you the documentation to prove it!

Contact DBI and find out how our DB2 LUW Performance Solutions can truly help you optimize performance and lower IT costs.
