Dear Common Belgium members,
and all IBM i and Power enthousiasts,
Common Belgium is proud to invite you to the second event of this year.
This time it’s all about database. More specific: database modernization.
The focus is more on ‘how to’ than on ‘why’.
The first session will indicate how to start with temporal database and row and colomn access control.
The second sessions is about what you can expect when modernizing your database.
The third session is more about how design decisions can impact the performance of the database:
A roadmap to datacentric computing. 
After the first session and before the lunch we will have our annual general assemblee. A short
presentation will cover the 2016 events, the financial results and the events we planned for this year.
The COMMON Belgium Board
