Db2 12 Continuous Delivery - New challenges for deployment
Fundamental changes in the Db2 z world often lead to concerns. Let's face it - some changes force us to change! This will have a tremendous impact on migration strategies, because we have to find a reliable way to test these code deliveries in a fraction of the time we used to have. This presentation will describe the difference between Code, Catalog, Function and Application Levels, how you can control them and how you can fallback in case of anomalies.

Revival of the SQL Tuner
The pool of DBAs with SME knowledge of SQL tuning has shrunk dramatically while the number of SQL statements needing attention has grown and will continue to grow. DB2 performance tooling can help identify what needs to be tuned. But what do you do then? This presentation will help fill the skills gap by reviving the role of an SQL Tuner.

The Db2 12 Catalog -- What happened since Db2 11
There are many ways to learn about a new Db2 version, but using the catalog is probably the fastest and most enlightening. Once you look at the revision track in the Db2 Catalog and Directory section of the SQL Reference Guide, study the column changes, additions as well as new catalog tables, you have a very good overview of everything worth to know about that specific Db2 version.

Early experiences using Db2 for z/OS Transparent Data Set Encryption
Db2 11 and Db2 12 recently delivered a simple, transparent and consumable approach to enable extensive encryption of data at-rest. This new capability substantially reduces the people and hardware costs associated with protecting data & achieving compliance mandates. Db2 12 expands the Db2 11 functionality by providing new options to allow a DBA to manage encryption policies at a table level. The session discusses the differences between Db2 11 and Db2 12 and results of early customer experiences using this new encryption approach.
