Watch this replay, learn good advice from your DB2 community peers, then complete our survey for your chance to win a $25 gift card!

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

I think Ian @idbjorh offered tips that will save me a lot of time today! Thanks! Rajesh gave us an entire primer on tuning DB2 memory in just 4 minutes! And Swapna, once she joined us via phone, gave us a quality presentation on her experience with transferring data between databases running on different operating systems.

Again, I want to take a quick moment to give a shout out of thanks to my good friend @ember_crooks. As you may know, she was a guest judge on 7 FEB 2014 and she's a prior DB2's GOT TALENT 3rd place winner. She is doing an AWESOME job of blogging about DB2's GOT TALENT 2014 at and I'm thankful for all of the details she is providing! She's saving me a lot of time!
