    George Baklarz

    George Baklarz has spent 28 years in IBM working on various aspects of database technology. From 1987 to 1991 he worked on SQL/DS as part of the product planning department, system test team, performance team and application development group.

    In 1991, Baklarz was part of the team that helped move the OS/2 ES database to Toronto to become part of the DB2 family of products. Since this time he has worked on tradeshow support, vendor enablement, competitive analysis, product marketing, product planning, and technical sales support. George has a Doctorate in Computer Engineering, which took him only 13 years to get. The Engineering Faculty didn't like the fact that he worked at IBM - they felt that part-time students would never finish their degree if they had to work for a living!

    Today, Baklarz works with customers to help them understand the new DB2 technology directions and uses their feedback to help improve the DB2 family of products.
