How transferable are DB2 skills across the platforms it supports?

Related to an earlier message I posted (thanks for responses), I'm
considering migrating a project to DB2 on AIX.  If I find DBAs or
programmers who have used DB2 but not on AIX (e.g., on OS/390) which
of these skills will still be useful on AIX and which will not?

Steve,

IMHO, the AIX version of DB2 is closer to the PC versions (Windows, OS/2
and especially Linux) than it is the mainframe version - but that's only
my opinion.

With that in mind, I think most of the PC skills will transfer to AIX
pretty well.  Mainframes have a lot of other things to deal with,
however, and I don't think those will transfer quite as well.

I tink if you find a good PC based DB2 DBA (espeically one with an AIX
background - or even Linux), you will be well served.

Skills which will be useful: Intelligence, energy, ability to listen and
learn, methodological analysis, (even basic understanding of relational
database architecture).

The platform details are nothing more than a short training period. Look for
the general skills, not the specific product experience.
