"In theory, everything in our shop (on all platforms) is heading for DB/2.
In reality, we have a bunch of systems which will quite likely not be
converted nor replaced within the next 5+ years.

I upgraded the production CVs to R16.0 tape SP1 on Labor Day weekend.
All
the TEST/QA CVs had previously upgraded. Prior to the upgrade we were
running R14.0.

14.1 is dead. Long live 14.1!

And for those of us who haven't upgraded yet, I have a quick survey. By
show of e-mails, how many are still running 14.x and how many are still
running, um, er older versions?

Good bye IDMS ???
"My employer is trying to convert all self made ADS&IDMS core business systems to software package running on AIX/Oracle (not the best combination btw).

Results so far are not exactly encouraging : huge performance problems with fraction of the final amount of data, 20+ people project with at least three oracle dba's doing what was done in the mainframe with three programmers and one dba. Not to speak about the money spent, so far. And the overdue schedule. And moving target of the project. And....

One conclusion I have made is this : Facts are not the most important ingredient in decisisions, although they should be.
