Security Cost Saving Tips at IDUG

I’m presenting a session at IDUG NA 2013.  

The topic is:  DB2 10 LUW — Securely Hiding Behind the Mask 

This isn’t your typical DB2 security session.  For example,  have you considered the cost savings you may achieve by implementing column masks?  (Yes, I did say ‘cost savings’.) Or….have you altered reality lately?  I have, using DB2′s column masks.  

If you are intrigued, I hope to see you in my session on Tue, Apr 30, 2013 at 02:00 PM.

IBM Certification Exams at IDUG 2013

For those of us who will be attending IDUG in Orlando from 4/29 to 5/3 have you thought about maximizing your time and investment by attaining certification?  I checked with Susan Weaver, IBM WW Certification Program Manager, about exam costs for IDUG attendees and here is her reply:  

“Each attendee is given one free exam, however, if they pass, they may take another. Any additional exams will be $25.”

With the average cost of each certification exam at $200 per test, you have the opportunity for significant savings if you take your certification exams at IDUG. 

And, while you are at IDUG, I hope you will attend my session:
