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

Tomas Escobar:
Short overview
  • 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.
