New DB2 release in 2020

Hello all,

i was looking for information if there will be a new DB2 release (DB6 on LUW) in 2020.

I couldn´t find any information on this. I openend a SR with SAP and was redirected to this forum.

Does anyone know if we are going to see a new DB2 release in 2020?

Best,

Alexander Bertram

    Hi Alexander,

    IBM recently released DB2 version 11.5. On SAP side we are currenty working on the certification of this version.

    Is your question directed to Db2 V11.5 or the Db2 release after V11.5?

    We can not provide any information about the long term IBM DB2 release plan after

    V11.5.

    Regards

    Frank

    Hi Alex,

    I can not confirm a date. For SAP we need some APARs on top of the IBM V11.5 GA version. But if no unexpected problems are encountered V11.5 should be certified in 2019.

    Regards

    Frank

    Hello Frank,

    well that information helps a lot. 11.5 is in the works, thats all i need to know for now.

    Can you estimate if the 11.5 certification will be available at the beginning of 2020?

    Best,

    Alex
