Finals Round #2

Top 8 Finalists Compete for YOUR Votes!

Great DB2 LUW & z/OS presentations!

100% of our studio audience learned something! Today's presentations were GREAT and included topics on MON_GET_DATABASE, Configuring UOW Event Monitor, IBM Performance Analysis Suite, Connecting DB2 LUW to Microsoft Access, SQL Injection and Exception Handling via Stored Procedures, taming a mismatched DB2 z/OS catalog, and solving challenges with IDAA and IBM Data Stage Jobs! This show contains another buffet of useful tips and advice! Enjoy!

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Due to internet issues, Brandon was unable to join us, but everyone else thankfully showed up and gave GREAT presentations! Nicely done! Now our remaining finalists need your votes - VOTE BELOW!

Rajesh, Leila, Rohit, and Roberto received the highest votes last week from our worldwide audience, so they were "safe". Christian, Sreeharsha, Brandon, and Akshat "presented for their lives" in the bottom four. Our judges decided to save Sreeharsha and Akshat based on their presentations. Our judges also used their discretion to eliminate Leila and to invite Brandon to Finals Round 3. So, on 20 March 2015, the Finalist presenters will be:

DB2's GOT TALENT Top 6 Finalists

  • Brandon, New Zealand
  • Roberto, Mexico
  • Sreeharsha, India
  • Rohit, India
  • Akshat, India
  • Rajesh, India

Inasmuch as Brandon was unable to present today, please consider his prior presentations when casting your votes below.
