IBM Informix – HCL IP Partnership (April-28-2017)
Dear Informix Partners,
below we share actual news about the IBM/HCL Informix partnership, provided today by Tomas Escobar
(WW Sales and Strategy Leader, DB2 and Informix).
Your CURSOR Service Distribution Team
Informix Development and support teams will move to HCL and HCL will further accelerate Informix development work.
Nothing changes for existing customers - and there is a guarantee for next 15 years of continued Informix availability, enhancements and support.
IBM did not sell the IP, not the product, not the source code - we did not sell the Informix business.
IBM remains the point of contact for sales, contracting, licensing, pricing, support towards customers. IBM product lifecycle policies remain unchanged for Informix.
I would like to share with you a couple of great perspectives on the IBM Informix and HCL partnership written by Dan Hernandez and Matthias Funke, as well as other key material. The objective is to assist you in the process of sharing these exciting news with your sales teams, colleagues, business partners and customers.

Request for speakers and additional topics (10.03.2017)
Dear Informix friends
After the very positive response to the Informix technology days in recent years, a technology day will be held again this year. The event will be held in Munich on 16 May. Registrations will be possible from the end of March.
IBM is planning a mix of a key note with up-to-date information on product development, lectures by developers and support staff, and of course, customers will also participate with lectures.
We therefore ask you to propose topics and presentations for the Informix Technology Day. In this case, a title proposal is sufficient, possibly extended by a brief description of the content
Two types of proposals can be made
- Topics on lectures, which you would like to keep yourself
- Topics on lectures you would like to hear.
We look forward to your feedback and hope to see you in May!
Thanks and kind regards

When was the last time you flew?
Remember the start, the moment in which the jet engine unfolds its full thrust – you are pressed into your seat, the plane vibrates and the wheels leave the ground. Can you imagine that you rely completely on OEM products in this moment?
Did you know that the market leaders for airliners Boeing and Airbus do not manufacture jet engines?
The Thrust comes from Rolls-Royce or General Electric, the wheels are labeled with Continental, Michelin or Goodyear – these are some of the many OEMs - Original Equipment Manufacturer - who provide airplane components - Companies which care with their products for you to start and land safely.
You fly OEM!
This principle can also be applied on good software.
