2009 Integrated Data Management

We were honored to have Curt Cotner join us in Baltimore for a customer luncheon in early April. Curt presented on IBM’s 2009 strategy and impressed everyone in the room. Curt generously sent me a copy of the presentation the next day, and I’ve been back and forth with our hosting company trying to figure out how to enable sharing a file of this size. It’s working now, so I want to share it.

It’s not only a big file – there are some huge ideas and concepts. Please review it when you get a chance – I hope you get the same “wow!” we got during the live presentation back in April.

As I hope many people know, IBM announced the release of Cobra (DB2 V9.7) last week.  In preparation for the early announcement I was invited to a briefing to review the new features.  The technical portion was delivered by Cobra guru Chris Eaton.  The presentation is scheduled to be released publicly this week and as soon as I get it I will add it to this blog.  The content is excellent and as you view it, you will see they tried to include a little something for everyone.  I hope you find it helpful – and hope to have it available in the next day or so.
