Session title: UTS, Past, Present & Future

Session abstract: The UTS has been with us since DB2 V9 and now in Db2 12 it got an upgrade with the UTS PBR RPN type.

In this presentation I wish to show you the history of these beasts, how to use which variant, and when, for the best performance and utility balance. I will also briefly delve into current changes and its probable future development.
