The Final Countdown for DB2 11 for z/OS

Triton Consulting is making customers aware that as of March 31st 2021, DB2 11 for z/OS will no longer be supported by IBM.

The DB2 for z/OS v11 End-of-Support (EOS), date was originally scheduled for 30th September 2020 but was extended until 31st March 2021. However, IBM has confirmed that the extended March date will not be extended again.

With less than 3 months until the deadline Triton would like to encourage all customers who haven’t completed their migration to DB2 12 to do so.

If you are in the early stages of or about to start planning your migration to DB2 12 you should consider getting extended support until you do migrate. Migration projects can often take longer than anticipated – a rush to complete migration in less than 3 months is a high-risk project.

Triton understand that upgrading to a new version can be a daunting prospect. Business critical databases need to be available 24/7 and risk of downtime must be carefully managed during any version migration project. Planning and executing a successful version upgrade is essential.

Migration workshops, project planning, implementation, support and new version training are just some of the services offered by Triton to ease users through the upgrade process. We can also provide Consultancy on Demand as a resource to assist you in your migration project.

If you would like some input from our DB2 experts then contact us to arrange an initial discussion. Call us 44 (0) 870 2411 550, email info@triton.co.uk or visit our Migration Update Support page for further details.
