Triton Team Up for IDUG EMEA Conference

With just over a week to go until Europe’s biggest and most prestigious DB2 technical conference, IDUG EMEA, here’s an overview of what attendees can look forward to.

Triton Consulting will be represented this year by speakers Iqbal Goralwalla, James Cockayne, Mark Gillis and Damir Wilder. In a twist to their regular presentations Triton will team up for this year’s presentations.

Highly experienced DB2 Consultants Iqbal and James will be giving a fascinating presentation entitled Easing the dilemma of choosing a DB2 Cloud Platform.

With several major cloud vendors competing to host your databases, it is important to understand the strengths, weaknesses and quirks of each. This presentation shares the experiences of Triton consultants as they have evaluated and conducted proof of concepts of hosting various DB2 configurations on Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and IBM cloud infrastructures.

Mark Gillis and Damir Wilder will be taking us through Migrating an on-premise DB2 environment to the AWS Cloud: a real-life success story

This is a case study of a migration from an on-premise DB2 V11.1 mission-critical HADR environment to an AWS Cloud installation. It will include the pre-requisites, setup on AWS, data migration, testing, and the actual production cut-over. We will share ups and downs, the pitfalls, gotchas and tribulations, as well as advice on how to manage the migration successfully.

There will be lots of other fantastic presentations throughout the week but here are a few of our top picks:

  • IBM Keynote – Journey to AI with Al Martin
  • DB2 for z/OS Trends and Directions – New News with Maureen Townsend
  • DB2 11.5: Making life simpler Paul Bird
  • DB2 BLU: Maximizing the Potential of Data Christopher Drexelius
  • Store, Query, Retrieve and Publish JSON using the new DB2 ISO JSON Functions George Baklarz

Julian Stuhler and Iqbal Goralwalla will be participating in this year’s expert panels. The panels take place on Wednesday 23rd October. Julian will be answering questions on DB2 for z/OS from 14:40 alongside John Campbell, Jim Dee, Terry Purcell, Haakon Roberts and Steen Rasmussen.

Iqbal Goralwalla will be joining the LUW expert panel together with Ember Crooks, John Hornibrook, Piotr Mierzejewski, Keri Romanufa and Michael Tiefenbacher. The DB2 LUW expert panel will follow the z/OS panel. Start time 15:50.

In addition to the above there will be:

  • Half and full-day workshops
  • Five days of education sessions
  • More than 100 one-hour technical sessions

Safe travels everyone and see you all in Rotterdam!
