    In March 2013 the IDUG DB2 11 Editorial Committee was formed, comprised of volunteers from IDUG’s worldwide community of DB2 users and consultants. Working alongside IBM's formal Early Support Program (ESP), the Editorial Committee gained valuable insight into exactly what makes the new release tick. The White Paper, available on the IDUG web site, contains their findings, including practical experiences and independent evaluations of the new features.

    DB2 11 contains a large number of enhancements, but some will be of more interest than others depending on your job role and background. The paper has been organized according to the features likely to be most applicable to each of the three major technical roles in a DB2 for z/OS environment: Systems Programmers, Database Administrators and Application Developers.

    This presentation from the IDUG EMEA 2013 Technical Conference looks at some of the key findings presented in the paper.
