Regarding IBM enterprise data management

At its Information on Demand conference in Las Vegas last week, IBM announced a raft of new capabilities and initiatives with respect to IMS (version 10, available 10/26, whose main new features are around supporting SOA), DB2 and ancillary management and development capabilities. I shall be concentrating here on DB2 (version 9.5, which will be available from the end of this month) as well as some of the additional capabilities that IBM has announced.
