Fresh Informix Success Stories

Several new Informix success stories have been published. Below you'll find an expert of those stories.

The interesting thing I noticed is that almost all of these customer references are based on the combination of Informix and Unix operating system, particulary Linux. I didn't detect a single one covering Windows or MAC.

What does this tell us ?

Merry Christmas


The Informix Zone wishes the Informix community Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011 !

Hopefully 2011 will become a good year for Informix.

IUG Vorstandssitzung

Der IUG-Workshop startete für mich bereits am Montag mit unserer IUG-Vorstandssitzung. Neben diversen organisatorischen Themen führten wir auch eine lebhafte Diskussusion zum Thema Informix@IBM oder konkreter: Informix@IBM-Deutschland. Ich kann Ihnen versichern, dass die IUG alles in ihrer Macht stehende unternimmt, um Informix in Deutschland wieder voranzubringen. Aber ohne die Hilfe von IBM wird das nicht funktionieren. Mehr dazu finden Sie im Abschnitt Informix@IBM-Deutschland.
