Another day at IOD. A lot is happening
Fro one thing, the energy level from the Informix IBM people, customers and partners is palpable! Everybody is excited about the product and how it is doing.
As far as sessions, I had a problem: I could not attend two sessions at once. Here's a quick summary of one I attended:
HILT is a trousers manufacturer (fashion industry) that focuses on quality. They believe they make the ultimate trousers. To manage their business, they use a specialized software package produced by AVM software (see: www.avmsoftbase.de) that runs on Informix. One thing the software allows them to do is just-in-time provisioning. This means that in a matter of a few days, they can replenish a store anywhere from HILT's factory. HILT likes the fact that IDS is does not require any attention so they can spend their resources running their business instrad of managing a database.
We also had an excellent party for Informix Monday night that was well attended (courtesy of Intel and HP). Lots of good conversations. Working hard...
till next time!
