Informix Technology Day 2017DSC8603 AQA G7575 500x333

IBM Invitation for May 16 to Munich
request for speakers and additional topics

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.

Please send your topic or lecture request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and also provide your contact details.


We look forward to your feedback and hope to see you in May!

Thanks and kind regards

IBM Informix on Cloud

White Paper by Bloor
Author Philip Howard
Publish date January 2017

This paper discusses the latest release of IBM Informix, which offers the ability to host Informix on the IBM Cloud (SoftLayer and Bluemix).

Informix, one of the databases offered by IBM, has a long and illustrious history. It is well known as a platform for supporting applications developed by third parties and ISVs, primarily for use in transactional environments.

This is because Informix is a robust offering that combines high performance and functionality with minimal administrative requirements. However, this paper does not discuss these features of the product in any detail.

Instead, we are here concerned with the latest release of IBM Informix, which offers the ability to host Informix on the IBM Cloud.
