With each new version or release of Db2 for z/OS, there is a requirement to provide unquestionable day one support for the products you depend on to allow you to exploit new capabilities to meet your business needs.

Without that support, you may have to delay the use or adoption of new Db2 functionality, postpone use of new features in new or existing applications or worse. With IBM Db2 Tools, you can take advantage of new features quickly and on your time schedule.

Moreover, in this release, Db2 Tools added AI-infused features that can improve operational efficiency, optimize actionable insights and provide intelligent integration.  Join Maureen Townsend, Haakon Roberts, and Tim Willging as they share the critical Db2 Vnext support provided today and the outline the strategies and innovations for the future.
