DB2 LUW MDC Tables "in the REAL World" - IBM DB2 GOLD Consultant Experiences
IBM Gold Consultants
Susan Guasden and Terry Mason
In this Episode, Scott Hayes is joined by two very special guests from the UK, both IBM DB2 GOLD Consultants, who will share with us their field (real world) experiences for using MDC successfully to achieve outstanding performance results. We are pleased and honored to have Susan Gausden and Terry Mason from Brooklands Technology Limited join us. In addition to sharing MDC tips and best practices, they have a few horror stories to share as well - this is a great opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others!
Susan Gausden is a certified database consultant experienced in data warehousing, database performance and multi-platform architectures. Susan is English and French bilingual and previously worked for major software and hardware vendors in North America.
Terry Mason is a certified database consultant, experienced in data warehousing, performance assurance, and database migrations. He was a founding director of the International DB2 Users Group (IDUG) and has worked extensively in the UK and North America.
In this episode, special guest Julian Stuhler, Director Triton Consulting and IBM DB2 GOLD Consultant, shares with us his views and experiences on the top DB2 support issues and recommended solutions.
While most of us eventually become adept at handling challenges in our own organizations, you can get a head start and be more proactive by joining us for this unique show. As Julian checks off the most common problems he and his teams run into, you may likely learn how to avoid a problem. Or, you might learn a clever or efficient solution to a common challenge.
They say the difference between stupidity and ignorance is how many times you make the same mistake. Well, here is another great opportunity to benefit from the mistakes and ensuing wisdom of others.
