Today we are introducing the latest Db2 Data Management Console that is built for your enterprise and your on premises Db2 databases. You can download it today. The IBM® Db2® Data Management Console is the next step in the evolution of IBM Data Server Manager. Your whole team can work together to manage, monitor, receive alerts and optimize the performance of one or hundreds of Db2 databases from a single screen. For more information go to

Your whole team can work together to manage, monitor, and receive alerts across hundreds of Db2 databases from a single screen. 
This is the next step in the journey we started this year with Db2 Big SQL. We delivered a better more powerful user experience with a simpler, easier to use approach to monitoring, a faster redesigned SQL Editor, and an easier way to navigate and manage database objects. 

We followed up with new Db2 Data Man
agement Consoles across multiple public and private cloud offerings. Db2 Warehouse has a new console for both IBM Cloud and AWS and IBM Cloud Pak for Data has Db2 Data Management consoles for both Warehouse and OLTP. 
With each new release, we added capabilities and improved our interface for the whole family. They are a single experience, built on a common codebase, across multiple cloud environments, for the whole Db2 family of offerings. 
To highlight these big changes we have an new name for Data Server Manager. The IBM Db2 Data Management Console Version 3.1. You can think of this as Data Server Manager Version 3. 
But our changes are not just in the human interface. Our new consoles are built on a full set of open RESTful APIs. Anything you can do in the interface you can do through an open API. 
This isn't just a UI. It is a set of micro services for Db2.
Team Collaboration is also built in. 
With a click, you can send a link to your team so they can see exactly what you are working on. You can even pick and choose parts of the console to integrate into your own custom webpages.

@Peter KOHLMANN I implement DMC in development but I cannot connect it to zOS DB2 (V11). When I configure the repository it gives the message
"HWCREP0008E: Currently IBM Data Management Console does not support to use Db2 for z / OS as repository". You can help? Thank you.

@Peter KOHLMANN I've implemented DMC on STG and going install on PRD next week. My management is asking me if DMC can send any sort of email on alerts on violating warning or critical threshold. When I get into monitoring profile I don't see anyway to forward the alert to an email id or anything. Also does DMC support integration to nagios or big panda monitoring tools ? Does it have any API.  Any links or documentation related is appreciated. ​

Yes, have a look at the community page. There are links to lots of resources including the Knowledge Center which has detailed instructions on upgrading from DSM to DMC. Have a look at this article.

Peter do we have any documentation to upgrade from 2.1 to 3.1 ?

Could you elaborate on the "You can even pick and choose parts of the console to integrate into your own custom webpages" and perhaps give an example? How is the authentication done, when an iframe is copied to another page?
