Mission, Objectives and Operation

WDUG was established to:

  • Provide a channel for the education and communication of Db2 related information to and from members in the field of information processing.
  • Encourage the development of Db2 compatible products.
  • Conduct Special Events, meetings, discussion groups, panels, and other programs concerned with the development and exchange of Db2 related information among members.
  • Encourage networking and sharing of information and best practices among members of the local Db2 community. 
The WDUG website is maintained by the Wisconsin Db2 User’s Group to provide a mechanism for exchanging knowledge, experiences, and communication between members.



WDUG was founded in 1991.  Our meetings originally featured presentations related only to DB2 on the mainframe. Today, each quarterly meeting provides full day of education for both DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for LUW. Meetings have attracted up to 80 attendees or more.

Since all meeting presentations must be technical in nature without promoting vendor products, WDUG recently started a ‘Lunch and Learn’ program.  At most quarterly meetings our sponsors have an opportunity to present their products during the lunch break - they provide the lunch and demonstrate their products to those meeting attendees who choose to participate.

WDUG continues to draw nationally known DB2 speakers such as Craig Mullins, Bonnie Baker, Scott Hayes, Dave Beulke, Sheryl Larsen, Willie Favero, Terry Purcell, etc… and their participation is greatly appreciated. The sharing of DB2 experiences and knowledge contributes to the continued success of our Wisconsin DB2 Users Group.
