Optimizing Your Mainframe and Upgrading to DB2 10 for z/OS
Approximately every three years there will be a new version of DB2, and if you do not plan for and adopt new releases on a regular basis you will be in danger of running unsupported software.
Upgrading your DB2 systems should be a regular, planned part of your database administration efforts.
Access this resource to discover a platform that will help you prepare an upgrade strategy for your organization. Continue on to learn the answers to the following key questions you need to know to upgrade:
- Do you wish to be bleeding edge and upgrade to the latest version of DB2 as soon as it becomes available?
- If not, how long will you wait before upgrading?
- Or is your organization a late adopter? Will you plan to stay one version behind current (as long as it is still supported)?
