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
  • New partnerships
  • Awards received from customers and partners
  • New customers
  • 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 or 952-221-6514.
