I’ve written many blogs in the past month about the upcoming IBM Information on Demand Conference. If you are planning to attend, I hope they’ve been useful for you. If you’re not attending, I hope you see that there is much value for you if you do attend!
My previous blogs were about what IBM and our Champions are doing at the conference. In this post, I’d like to tell you what some of our customers are doing at the conference.

To handle global expansion and hone our competitive edge, we create time for DBAs with performance, availability, cost reduction and expense-avoidance tools.

Easy-to-follow examples illustrate how IBM InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager has replaced home-grown performance data collection script and analysis techniques. The taming of Self-Tuning Memory Management (STMM) is drawn, showing STMM to be a trustworthy facility with specific advantages. We’ll share use cases for IBM Workload Manager with business rule definition and Read On Standby, with strengths and restrictions, and a walk-through case study of V10 Oracle-Compatible mode with its greater transparency.
