A multi-talented database consultant, James works with both DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for Midrange systems.

James is our resident DB2 pureScale expert having spent time in the IBM Boeblingen labs and running our own DB2 pureScale environment for R&D. Having worked with Data Sharing on the mainframe for many years James has been able to combine his knowledge of DB2 on Midrange and DB2 on z/OS to gain valuable skills in DB2 pureScale.
