I did not noticed a session on Wednesday. Luckily, I went to it Thursday morning. It was: "Tuning Informix in a Sandbox Environment" by Russell Glancy from GSN Digital.
Russell covered in details how a product from exactsolutions, iReplay, allows him to test new configurations, versions, and tuning in a safe environment using the same workload as his production machine. this way, he is knows exactly what will happen when he makes the changes to the production environment.
I also co-presented the session "Keeping costs low and maximizing flexibility for Jamaica using IDS" with Walt Brown, senior manager at FSL Jamaica. My role was mainly to introduce Walt and let him present his environment. Walt went into details about their environment and that they basically run all the Jamaican government systems, including tax collections that was even active and used during a hurricane.
There were several other sessions including:
A deep dive into the IBM Informix 4GL Service Oriented Architecture Feature, Gaga Mahesshwari, IBM
Dimensional modeling for IBM Informix warehouse users, Fred Ho, IBM, Sandra Tucker, IBM
Managing IDS configuration ans performance with server studio and sentinel, Keshava Murthy, IBM, Anatole Vichon, AGS Ltd
And several more... All that on the last day of the conference!
The conference is over. It is now time to go back to work.
