How Informix can fit Your Database Needsibm systems magazine 430x205c

IBM Systems Magazine Article - Ken Milberg (March 2018)

When most people hear that an IBM database is being evaluated, they naturally think of Db2. While that may be a natural reflex of sorts, IBM has expanded its database offerings over the years with Informix, Netezza and Cloudant—the first of which will be discussed in this article.

Informix is perhaps best known best for being used in high transaction OLTP application environments. In recent years it has been enhanced to support the largest of data warehouse workloads. In 2017, IBM and HCL technologies agreed to a 15-year partnership to co-develop and support the product.

  • Why use Informix and what does it do for you?
  • How has it evolved and what is it today?

Pradeep Muthalpuredathe / Director - WW Informix Engineering
Pradeep Muthalpuredathe present the basics of the collaboration between IBM and HCL and the roadmap for the coming years at the Informix technology day.

HCL has taken over development and support on May 1. Most of the development and support staff have agreed to a change to HCL so that the usual contacts and existing structures are available to customers.

For IBM Informix customers nothing changes in the licensing or maintenance. IBM will continue to sell Informix through the IBM channel.

We asked Informix users, IBM partners and employees about their views on the IBM/HCL partnership. The responses were very positive because it is a long-term partnership and a god perspective for the future of Informix.
