Hi Valued Customer,
Happy Holidays to all and may your New Year been funwith family and friends.
2011 was another growing year for Informix.
New products - IBM Warehouse Accelerator and Genero
Continued innovation in the existing products - 11.70.xC4 is the latest release
Awards received from customers and partners
Even a benchmark that shows Informix vs Oracle
and a continued committment to the oldest of customers with the 'Continued Support Pilot' so anyone going all the way back to 7.31 can gain access to support and upgrades.
A special thanks for the board of the International Informix User Group in their passionate support and, personally, for moving the annual IIUG event to San Diego this coming spring. <Learn more>
Expect to see more in 2012. More enhancements. More partners. More of everything.
You can always reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
