If you've read my last entry, you know what happened with my watch while I was in Strasbourg. Considering that I have had that watch for a long time, I decided that it was time to replace it with a newer model so I spent $35 for the latest version of the same watch. My watch had run its time.
You must be wondering why I'm talking about a watch in an Informix blog :-). Informix (IDS) being a software product keeps on running. The bits don't wear out. Or do they?
So maybe the bits wear out... There are many other reasons why you'd want to go to IDS 11.50. They include the improvements in the areas of performance, ease of administration, business continuity, security, and application development. You also need to consider the new features and the integration with other IBM solutions.
To give you an idea about what you are missing, you can read the following slightly outdated document: Why upgrade to IDS 11.50
Staying up-to-date with IDS is another way to increase your business advantage. Look into it as soon as you can.
