What's new with DB2 for i?

Written by Scott Forstie

Like a carnival barker from a bygone era, I ask for your attention please. I have something new and exciting to tell you about. I seek not your hard-earned nickels, dimes, or quarters. I'm asking for your undivided attention for a few minutes. In today's world of hyper-tasking (hyper-tasking = multi-tasking x the # of devices you use), I realize that my request isn't trivial. Trust me…it will be time well spent on your part.
