Making Magic Happen with DB2 @IDUG – the Best of the Best at Disneyland, CA

Magic happened with DB2 at IDUG NA in Disneyland

IDUG NA was held in a magical locale this year – Disneyland in California. In keeping with the location, lots of fun and childish enthusiasm was on display. Whether in sessions, on the Expo floor, networking with peers, after hours in the Disneyland parks, or at the IDUG wrap up party (co-hosted by BMC, DBI, and IBM), a magical time was had by all. Our BMC experts were out in force giving workshops, talks, demos and in-depth explanations to our interested DB2 practitioners and clients. We had tons of great conversation on BMC’s Next Generation Technology, our modern UI Workbench, and SQL performance and tuning (aka Apptune). Our LOB survey sparked lots of interest in LOBMaster – or was it those oh-so-cute lobsters we were giving away? A HUGE thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth to chat with us. If we didn’t get a chance to speak in person, please reach out to us now! We’re always here and eager to chat.

Now let’s keep the momentum going and follow up on all this magical activity. The presentations are in and agendas are shaping up for IDUG EMEA! We will reconvene from all over the globe in Lisbon, Portugal this year. Make sure that you are there! What better opportunity could there be to learn and network than attending IDUG EMEA 2017 against such a beautiful backdrop? Early registration discounts are available now through Monday 7 August 2017 with the Early Bird Discount Code EARLYEMEA. Make sure to register soon!

Until then, I hope you keep some of that Disney magic with you and may all your dreams come true!
