  • For the past five years, every October, in line with IBM's largest Big Data conference in Las Vegas (#IBMInsight), IBM has launched a new DB2 for z/OS book, and this book continues that tradition. Written particularly for new and existing DB2 for z/OS customers and users, the book's contributors include Surekha Parekh, WW Marketing Program Director for DB2 for z/OS, and four DB2 experts from IBM's Silicon Valley Lab.

    The book is divided into three parts:

    DB2 11 Technical Overview focuses on DB2 technical features and functions and explains how new functions in DB2 11 can help enterprise customers address the challenges they face with the explosion of data and information. There has been rapid growth in the variety, volume, and velocity of data due to the growth of smart devices, mobile applications, cloud computing, and social media, and many of the enhancements in DB2 11 are focused on enabling enterprise customers to respond to these market opportunities in a cost-effective way.

    DB2 11 Migration Planning and Early Customer Experiences targets existing DB2 for z/OS customers, providing detailed information to help customers plan their DB2 11 migration strategy. This "must read" document for all existing customers is an excellent opportunity to learn from best practices and prevent costly migration errors.

    DB2 10 Migration to DB2 11 and Application Compatibility describes the application compatibility features in DB2 11, which address one of the most common obstacles that prevents customers from migrating to a new release: the need to implement code changes due to application incompatibilities, such as new reserved words. Support in DB2 11 allows such applications to continue to run under the new release until those changes can be implemented, removing them as an upgrade dependency.
