Julian commented“With his immense DB2 for z/OS product knowledge, extensive industry experience and close links to the DB2 development lab, Gareth is an absolutely natural fit for the Gold Consultant programme. I’m thrilled that he’s been awarded a place in this prestigious group.”

Gareth is a highly experienced DB2 for z/OS specialist having broad and varied experience as a DBA, Systems Programmer, member of the DB2 for z/OS Development SWAT Team, and consultant. Gareth joined the Triton team in October 2019, and has been focusing on assisting clients with their DB2 for z/OS Version 12 migration planning during that time.

“It’s a great privilege and honour to be selected as a Gold Consultant, which cements Triton’s status as the UK’s leading DB2 consultancy. DB2 for z/OS is a great product and I relish the opportunity to continue helping clients achieve success with it.” Gareth Copplestone-Jones, Principal Consultant

In his DB2 for z/OS SWAT Team role, Gareth worked with many large clients around the world in both consultancy and trouble-shooting roles. Despite concentrating on DB2 for z/OS, his focus on resilience and high/continuous availability means he has expertise in many of the areas around DB2.
