For many years, Infotel has been a proud sponsor of IDUG North America, the premier event for DBAs on z/OS® Db2®. This year, IDUG NA 2024 takes place in Charlotte, NC from June 24th to June 27th, and we’re excited to connect with DBAs from across the industry, and across the globe.

With the growing emphasis on data security and regulatory compliance, this year’s conference promises to be more critical than ever for Db2 professionals.

We’re particularly proud to sponsor a partner presentation by Craig S. Mullins, thought leader, strategist, researcher, and consultant in all things Db2. Building on the success of our collaboration at IDUG NA 2023, where Craig presented on “Intelligent Automation of Db2 Administration and Management,” this year’s session delves into the critical area of data governance for the DBA.
