Data in Action, the second semi-annual virtual conference
August 19 at 8:00 AM PDT / 11:00 AM EDT
This is the premiere data management event for IT managers and executives.
What is a virtual conference?
I attended a few earlier this year and was extremely impressed! This new technology delivers live audio and/or video with award winning speakers AND allows you to interact with speakers, product experts and other attendees.... all WITHOUT leaving your office! Really... all you need is a computer, speakers or headphones... and a bit of time. Time is the difficult one in this list, but this is a far shorter commitment on your time than attending a conference live.
This conference will feature effective data management solutions for smarter business outcomes. Hear from Donald Feinberg, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst from Gartner, about the state of the DBMS software market and data management challenges facing businesses today. The topics that Mr. Feinberg will examine include; the problem of exploding data volumes, new computing paradigms for handling this explosion, data management cost reduction techniques and technologies, and the perspective of the DBA now and in the future.
Following Mr. Feinberg will be a moderated panel of customers and partners who are leveraging the unique and desirable features only available in DB2 9.7.
This is one event you won't want to miss. Get your questions answered through 2 interactive (webcast) sessions, 8 exhibit booths, and live chat. IBM and it's business partners are helping companies around the globe with industry-leading data management technologies and their world-class expertise. Learn how your company can achieve smarter business outcomes and reduce underlying IT costs.
Attendee incentives include a complimentary memory stick for the first 97 attendees, which includes information on the cost savings of DB2 over Oracle. IBM employees are not eligible for this incentive.
Also a DB2 9.7 Discovery DVD for everyone who completes the event survey. The DVD includes trial code and tutorials. I look forward to seeing you there. If you do come... please ping me and tell me you read my blog :)
