Congratulations to 65 new Data Champions

Please join me in congratulating the 65 new Data Champions!  

These individuals, who come from 21 countries and whose participation spans products like DB2, IDS, IMS, U2 and Data Studio, have been honored for their exceptional contributions to the IBM Data Management community.

Data Champions are objective experts. They have no official obligation to IBM. They simply share their expertise, enthusiasm, and years of experience with others in the community, and their work contributes greatly to the overall success of Data Management. The new Data Champions include IBM customers, business partners, university professors and students. All members of the Data Management community that are not currently employed by IBM are eligible for this recognition.

You can meet the new Data Champions here, and learn more about the program itself on its homepage on

Nominations for the 2010 Data Champions will open in the Fall, and in the mean time, congratulations and our appreciation go out to all of those recognized this year.
