Triton launch new DB2 10 for z/OS version migration services
London UK - 11th July: This week Triton Consulting have announced a new package of DB2 z/OS migration service offerings including migration workshops, implementation, support and new version training.
July 12th, 2011
The new services aim to help customers with the often complex task of migrating from DB2 v8 and v9 to DB2 v10. IBM announced the launch of DB2 v10 back in October 2010 and organisations are now beginning to start planning their migration projects.
"By offering migration planning workshops and new version training as well as traditional consultancy for migration projects, we're able to help customers at all stages of their migration. We even have a post-migration service whereby we work with customers to help them make sure they are getting the best out of the new version so that all the associated cost benefits can be realised." Laura Hood, Marketing Manager, Triton Consulting Ltd.
As well as useful new technical features, DB2 10 brings with it some immediate cost benefits with significant CPU reductions. Most organisations are able to save 5-10% out of the box with no application changes, when compared to DB2 v9.
"With DB2 10 for z/OS, IBM has once again redefined the benchmark for large-scale database systems. I'm particularly impressed by the potential for significant productivity improvements through the new temporal data support, enhanced autonomic functions and SQL and XML extensions. These enhancements will help my customers to directly drive competitive advantage through more rapid deployment of application and warehousing workloads" Julian Stuhler, Director, Triton Consulting Ltd.
With this latest release it is also possible for organisations currently running DB2 v8 to skip straight to v10 rather than going sequentially through the versions. One of the services included in Triton's new package is a specific DB2 v8 skip migration workshop.
DB2 z/OS is the workhorse behind the IT systems of many of the worlds largest organisations and so planning and executing a successful version upgrade is essential. Triton Consulting can provide expert skills to reduce the elapsed time and risk associated with upgrading to DB2 10.
