The next decade of Informix at IBM has already begun!

IBM Informix celebrated a decade at IBM on the 1st of July, 2011. The journey so far has been an adventurous one for everyone associated with IBM Informix.

So what has changed during these past 10 years?

The answer is, A LOT! Here are some of the highlights:

  • IBM Informix has had more than 10 major product announcements in the past ten years
  • Introduced more than 500 cutting edge features into the product
  • And in the past year alone, our partners were able to deliver over 50 new Informix-based solutions into the market

And what has NOT changed in the past 10 years?

The core of Informix:

  • The ability to consistently churn out innovative and efficient offerings, allowing customers to do more while spending less
  • The performance, reliability, and ease of administration you have become accustomed to
  • The ability to build lasting relationship with partners and customers in every engagement

What’s in store for the next decade?

The next decade of Informix at IBM has already begun, and Informix 11.7 is at the heart of this journey, which is powering online transaction processing and decision support applications for organizations of all sizes, helping them deliver Smarter solutions.

Applications for a Smarter Planet will have tremendous relevance in the coming decade and IBM Informix’s role in the making of a smarter planet is very crucial, thanks to Informix’s capability of handling a variety of special data types such as spatial, geodedic and timeseries data which are key to enabling a smarter application. These data types enable smarter applications like Smarter Traffic systems, land management systems, and energy solutions. In fact Informix is shown to be superior to other data management solutions in handing timeseries data in terms of performance and storage savings.
