Upgrading to DB2 9 or DB2 10 for z/OS — How? When? What is the cost versus benefit?

This looks like a promising webcast on the migration to DB2 9 or DB2 10.
"(...) many DB2 users are considering migration and need direction in planning the right migration strategy for their business.
But how do you approach a migration strategy?
When is the best time to start?
Is skipping a release a good strategy?
What are the costs versus benefits for any scenario?"
Roger Miller will discuss the following topics :
  • Defining migration plan details for each component in your environment — servers, clients, applications and routines
  • Incorporating steps from previous migration plans, including internal procedures to request access, software installation or other system services
  • Understanding product restrictions and recommendations in order to plan your migration strategy
In addition to this all "webcast attendees will receive a free copy of “Executive Report of Business Value of DB2 10 - Smarter Database for a Smarter Planet” by Julian Stuhler, an Internationally recognized DB2 consultant and analyst." I don't know whether you attended the "DB2 10 for z/OS - Cost Savings ... Right Out of the Box", webcast, but the booklet from that session is a really valuable document. Apparently they call it Flashbooks. You can read everything about it at Susan Visser's blog : 'Build your Skill on DB2: books, certifications, tutorials, and more'.

When's the webcast : February 22, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, 4:00 p.m. GMT or 5:00 p.m. Brussels
