DB2 V10.5 FP4 "Cancun"

100% of our audience learned something! During today's show, George shared with us the significant improvements and enhancements that are delivered via Fixpack 4 of DB2 V10.5 BLU. You will learn about shadow tables, pureScale enhancements, improved Oracle compatibility and compression, improved performance, and more! Watch and learn...

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

You just have to love George. He's such an easy going, fun, straight shooter. It is no wonder he has over 5,000,000 frequent flier miles banked on his favorite airlines because he has a real gift for explaining technical topics in easy to understand ways. 100% of our audience learned something. I did, and I'm sure you will too!

Here are some comments from people that attended the live show:

  • Good show for Cancun. Thank you Scott.
  • An additional session focusing on just shadow tables - start to finish setup, config, optimizing, etc. including CDC - would be great. Agreed. We're working on it!
  • It was great show and very informative.
  • Brilliant webinar...
  • George is a rock star! Top notch presentation!

Update: George sent the PDF on 6 OCT 2014 around 5pm CDT. It is now available!


Joel Reece at BB&T Bank in Wilson North Carolina completed our survey after Episode #139 "Advanced DB2BATCH Tips and Techniques!" and has won a $25 gift certificate! We'll get this sent out within the next few weeks! THANK YOU FOR COMPLETING OUR POST-SHOW SURVEY!!!

Think About This

Larry Ellison resigned shortly after IBM released DB2 BLU V10.5 Cancun. Hmmm. Makes you wonder.

In other news, the State of Oregon is suing Oracle over a failed Obamacare website. That's a darn shame because others in the health care industry are enjoying great success with IBM DB2. Choose wisely.
