“I learned many new things about Db2 externals and the client experiences (war stories) were great. This was my best Db2 class ever.”

“It is a very good Db2 training course. Perhaps the best I have ever taken part in.”

“..I would recommend the course to other people for many reasons:  the content of the topics, the focus on practical situations, the presentation of problems, cases and experiences faced by many customers which were very rich, and the great skill of the speakers.”

“The class was excellent and provided me with lots of new knowledge. I've already used a couple pieces of knowledge I learned from the class to resolve outstanding issues. The timing of the class was perfect for me as I'm just moving into [a] new…role and the information from this class will help me in reviewing and potentially improving our environment.”

“I have been a DBA for about 20 years- some of the information was absolutely amazing and an absolute eye opener. It was a wonderful experience (although intense :)) and I have learnt so much and I have a massive list of ideas.....”

“Always great to get the recommendation from the experts on the some of the DB2 settings and some of their actual experiences.  The internal discussions with the various participants adds to the value of this class. Always good to get pointed out to keep up ( and its importance)  with the maintenance :) Its great to hear from other clients and their opportunities (opportunities that are different from our environment or we have not encountered .. yet :) )”

“The depth of knowledge of the presenters and the willingness of the presenters to discuss anything and everything and the ample opportunity they provided discuss and answer any questions we might have.”

“Overall, for me I believe I can apply the learnings from the class in the field of Coupling Facility, DDF and Performance topics to our systems.  There is a direct benefit for me in attending this class.”

“All speakers are very professional, with plenty of technical insight and very good example from real world, it will certainly help my daily work. I will recommend this class to my colleague for sure.”
