And Last but not the least Frank Petersen with "Experience DB2 10 experiences" will go through the experiences from Bankdata/JN data concerning going to DB2 10. Bankdata took part in the beta program for DB2 10 and there will be some brief information about this process. In the spring 2011 the Bankdata systems are planned to go through a 6 months process to be upgraded to DB2 10. Frank will give experiences from this process, both from a performance related view as from talking about problems met during the way. He will try to make the presentation as up to date as possible as the process is continuing right up to the conference.
