If you're going to be at this year's IOD conference in Las Vegas, you might be interested in reviewing some of IOD 2010's customer stories for data replication. I've got links to a couple of them here along with links to some of the IBM presentations for both replication and federation. You'll hear more stories like these this year. You'll also be able to see demos in the InfoSphere Demo Room. We look forward to seeing you there.
Once I have a list of presentations for this year, I'll put them in a new post.
