As we like to say in Texas, "Let me shoot you straight!" WATCHING THIS REPLAY SHOULD BE REQUIRED EDUCATION BEFORE DOWNLOADING AND USING DB2 BLU CANCUN. Yes, I realize that text is all in uppercase and it might look like I am shouting - THAT'S BECAUSE I AM! Iqbal is simply brilliant and his advice is invaluable!

Think About This

Larry Ellison resigned shortly after IBM released DB2 BLU V10.5 Cancun. Hmmm. Makes you wonder, doesn't it? Is Larry saying "Uncle?"

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.
