Db2 11 for z/OS End of Service date change

By Mo Townsend posted Tue May 12, 2020 06:14 PM

With 6 months remaining until Db2 11 for z/OS end of service (EOS), while most clients are working with Db2 12, completion of production migrations is slower than originally anticipated. As a result, we have announced an extension of the EOS for Db2 11 for z/OS from September 30, 2020 to March 31, 2021. While we will continue to monitor progress, we expect this to be a one-time adjustment.

The formal announcement has been published today, May 12. You may refer to either the new announcement letter or to the IBM Software Lifecycle page.
