There were 2 keynote addresses, 25 sessions, 5 bird-of-a-feather sessions, usability labs and demos in the exhibit hall. Then the day closed with an Hawaiian Luau sponsored by Gillani. A packed day to say the least.
All this was topped with the announcement of IDS 11.50.xC4 that includes a new storage optimization feature and the Informix warehouse bundle. Things are moving fast with Informix!
The storage optimization includes compression, repack the spaces that is saved and shrink the dbspace to free the space. This new feature could save 30% to 50% or even more in some cases.
The Informix warehouse bundle include a too that allows you to define your warehouse and define the process of extract, load and transform. There is a chat with the lab schedule for Wednesday, April 29th at 8:30 AM Pacific, 10:30 AM Central, 11:30 AM Eastern, 4:30 PM London, 5:30 PM Paris that will provide more information on the subject.
