DB2 10 for z/OS: Migration and Planning Considerations

Learn everything you need to know to plan your upgrade path.

Editor's Note: This article is an excerpt from the book DB2 10 for z/OS: The Smarter, Faster Way to Upgrade.


This section reviews key migration and planning considerations to take note of in planning for DB 10 for z/OS.


As in previous releases, we recommend a short time for mixed-release coexistence in data sharing. A short period for Enable New Function Mode (ENFM) is also highly recommended. Support from vendors may affect the migration staging. One concern for Conversion Mode (CM) is that some new performance improvements cannot be used.
