InformixCity: Introduction to Informix

InformixCity: Introduction to Informix

Informix City - the initiator of the UK Informix Community Event - has published an interesting presentation from IBM Informix Program Director Fred Ho from the IOD 2008 conference. The presentation provides an overview of IDS and the underlaying DSA Architecuture (Dynamic Scalable Architecture). It shows the sweet spots of IDS as well as the interoperability with other IBM products.

IBM Database Magazine - Informix Content

New content arrived at the IBM Database Magazine website.

You might have already heard that The Informix Zone received the IBM Data Champion award. There is an article from Scott Bisang titled IBM Lauds its Data Champions that describes the award and mentions The Informix Zone. Unfortunately the award itself - which has already been shipped by IBM - hasn't been delivered by the carrier as of today. As soon as I receive it, I'll share a few photos here.

Delivering Proofs of Technology: The Maltese Falcon!

Last week was great! I spent the entire week in Malta, where I did some Informix consulting for the Maltese government and then spent three days delivering Informix Proofs of Technology to their Informix DBAs.

I was able to show them, hands-on, the new features and new performance tuning options in 11.1 and 11.5 and let them play with both versions. It's a really great, structured way of getting a feel for how easy-to-use the new technology is and still being able to experiment in a sandbox environment.

If you haven't got IDS 11 yet and you're keen to see what it's like, arrange one of these proofs of technology at an IBM facility near you!

The Informix on Campus issue revisited

I realise this is a sensitive and emotive subject, but I thought I would share my perspective on this:

1. IBM has an Academic Initiative that offers all these things for all IBM's technology. There is also a specific Information Management Academic Initiative Program. All the DB2 on Campus website does is to package that for DB2 specifically. And it does just seem to be DB2 that is doing this. I couldn't, for example, find a "Tivoli on Campus" website. And the DB2 on Campus program is not only staffed by IBMers.

Informix on Campus Program

We all heard heard about IBM's revised database strategy directly from IBM executives thru several webcasts or during the IIUG 2008 conference. IDS is now an emancipated data server and is the flagship database for OLTP as well as integrated solutions.

IDS 11 "Technical Enablement" Available

Carlton Doe has developed some great new "Proof of Technology" courses for IDS 11. These are aimed at business partners and ISVs. The idea is that you will be introduced to new technology by means of some training and some hands-on walkthroughs. The walkthroughs are scripted, but they're on fully working instances and you can play around with them to your heart's content, with an expert handy in case you get stuck.

There are PoTs covering:

  • advanced features (including a MACH11 taster)
  • ER and MACH11
  • performance tuning

Even though they are aimed at ISVs and BPs, end-users are welcome to come along if the PoT isn't fully booked. I therefore encourage you to get out there and get your local ISVs and BPs to arrange the delivery of one or more PoTs via your friendly local Tech Sales person.
