Informix was recently ranked as number 10 in the top 20 in-demand mobile skills by job search site Dice.com. The site listed the top 20 search subjects that hiring managers and recruiters use when they request people with mobile experience (http://www.zdnet.com/top-20-mobile-skills-in-demand-7000023318/). This may be surprising news to some, considering that Informix is known for being a traditional RDBMS. However, with the introduction of Informix JSON support in 12.10.XC2, aimed specifically at mobile development support that leverages the MongoDB API, Informix is stronger than ever!
