Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who didn’t speak your language? Did you find that the message inevitably got garbled?
As a security junkie DB2 LUW DBA type, I often felt that the z/OS DB2 DBAs and I spoke a different language. Sure, we were always able to discuss database security in general terms, but when it came to the specifics, there was a communication issue.
The good news for ALL DB2 DBAs is that with DB2 10 z/OS and DB2 LUW 9.7, security terminology is “more alike and less different”. If you’d like to learn more about our new common language, read the article that Craig Mullins and I wrote for IDUG. http://www.idug.org/p/bl/et/blogid=31&blogaid=32
