BLU Acceleration has been available for a few weeks now. Have you had a chance to try it? One of the design themes for BLU was "simplicity". No SQL changes. Just enable BLU on your database, convert some tables and presto, your queries run WAY faster. Is it that simple? Well pretty much, but what do you need to do to enable BLU on a database? How do you know what tables to convert. I have just learned that Danny Zilio, a Senior Software Developer in the Optim Query Workload Tuner team, and Marcia Miskimen, QA lead on product integration will be doing a presentation on "Adopt BLU Acceleration in DB2 10.5 the Faster Easier Way". In this presentation, Danny and Marcia will step you through the whole process from start to finish. They will show how to measure your performance before and after to see how much BLU Acceleration has helped you. The presentation is July 25, 2013.

Hope you can attend or watch a recording of it so you too can BLU.
