As the end of the year approaches, if you have been careful with spending and have remaining 2010 budget, please consider purchasing a DB2 services or training retainer from The Fillmore Group.

With a services or training retainer, your organization can preserve unspent 2010 budget funds and use them next year.  Here is how it works:

Services:  purchase a minimum of 150 DB2 services hours in advance at an hourly rate of $150 per hour.  These services hours will be placed in a retainer for your organization’s use over the next 24 months.   The Fillmore Group has been delivering retainer-based services to customers looking for lower rates for ten years.  When you add in the benefit of stretching budget funds across multiple years, the value increases even more.  If you are interested there is a comprehensive description of retainer-based services on our website( – the link is on the left side of the homepage).

Training:  purchase a private DB2 class in advance for delivery in 2011.  The Fillmore Group uses IBM authorized curriculum, IBM remote eLabs (to minimize lab setup hassles) and experienced instructors.  A three-day class retainer for a private class of up to six students is $12,000 and a four-day class retainer for a private class of up to six students is $14,000. 

If you are interested and have questions, please contact us at (410) 465-6335 – and we will look forward to working with you in 2011!
