We’d like to answer your questions about the operational improvements we made in Cloud Pak for Data 4.5 in the areas of installation, upgrade, backup, and restore. We’ve arranged for experts from across IBM to answer your questions right here in this forum thread.

If you have questions, you can start posting them now in the discussion forum. Our experts will hop on the Cloud Pak for Data Community discussion forum on August 25 at 2pm Eastern/11am Pacific and start answering your questions right here in this same thread.

This event will take place entirely in the discussion forum, so there is no meeting to join. If you can’t be online during the hour, don’t worry; you can post your questions in advance and read the responses later.
