A Message from your Informix Marketing Team
Welcome to the May edition of the “Informix Round-Up” newsletter. The newsletter is designed to keep you up to date on all of the latest Informix news.
Those who could not attend the IIUG Conference last month in San Diego missed a great event. More than 200 people gathered for the IIUG Conference. IBM big data thought leader and General Manager of IBM Information Management, Bob Picciano, delivered the keynote to a packed audience who were excited to hear more about IBM Informix 12.1 and how it fits in the era of big data. More than 80 sessions were held on timely and interesting technical topics such as the new features in IBM Informix 12.1, IBM Informix TimeSeries, IBM Informix Warehouse Accelerator, and IBM Informix Genero. It was an excellent educational and networking experience.
Following the conference, we wanted to share with you a letter to the Informix community from Bob Picciano. The letter highlights the unique capabilities of Informix products in meeting the challenges of the era of big data and the commitment of IBM to support and grow the Informix community. You can read the complete letter on the IIUG website.
