The colorful Moorish tiles, the friendly people, the warm weather, the seaside, and last but not least, the egg custard tarts await your visit to Portugal. BMC is thrilled to be a Gold Sponsor of IDUG Lisbon and invites you to join us at the premier European Db2 Conference October 1 – 6th.

Our experts are leading 6 technical sessions including a session on GDPR – the hot topic on everyone’s minds. How will the new regulation affect your business and how can BMC help? Another highlight will surely be Ásgeir Guðbjartsson, Db2 DBA at Valitor Iceland leading a session on how Valitor reorgs more data more often in less time with less outages. A miracle you say? Not so. Make sure to plan your agenda around these hot topics. Wrapping up the week, Jonathan Adams, Vice President and General Manager of ZSolutions, will deliver the conference closing keynote. He will regale us with the latest installment of his trials and tribulations with “Esther” – the satellite radio live-chat representative who so singularly failed to help him consolidate his accounts. This is a great story of how not being able to help your customers to help themselves in this digital age can actually COST a company money and customers.

If you are planning on attending IDUG this year, please do stop by the BMC booth and say hello. Talk with product experts, view live demos, and see how our Db2 solutions help you save money, increase availability & performance by optimizing your applications, and provide you with a better user experience. As the “digital revolution” continues, it is becoming more and more obvious that existing tools and techniques cannot keep up. BMC is investing in solutions that can scale and can continue to support the seemingly exponential growth of data in Db2.

Peak performance, perfect delivery, and big savings are the core of BMC’s mainframe solutions. We can’t wait to tell you more at IDUG EMEA.
