Break Free with TFG

IBM is continuously improving DB2 technical functionality while lowering the cost.  Oracle customers need to understand how DB2 compares.  The Fillmore Group has worked with several Oracle customers to understand the technical differences and to work through the migration process, from developing a plan to migrate applications and data, to training Oracle DBA’s to support DB2, and finally, to getting involved in the DB2 community.

Our goal is to help Oracle customers gain a better understanding of the differences.  TFG is hosting a series of webinars intended to demonstrate how to evaluate the cost reduction value, and to provide a better technical understanding of DB2.  We know the process isn’t simple.  Join us and decide when the time to right to seriously consider DB2.
