New IBM Informix 11.7 (Panther) database now available
Adam Gartenberg    

IBM has released the new IBM Informix 11.7 (Panther) database software today.  From the press release (IBM Helps Organizations Boost Business Performance With New Informix Database Software):

ARMONK, N.Y.- 13 Oct 2010: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today unveiled new Informix database software designed to help clients cut costs and respond quickly to market trends. The new version of IBM Informix software helps clients and partners speed the deployment of critical business solutions at lower cost while boosting performance by as much as 50%.
...
New performance capabilities in IBM’s Informix software make it easier and faster to power business analytics along with transactional applications – boosting performance by as much as 50%. Higher performance means clients need fewer servers, and less space, power, and cooling resources. To handle the ever growing volume of data, the new software also includes innovative time series data management and data compression – minimizing storage space by as much as 66% compared to competitive solutions.

IBM is also introducing the new IBM Informix Flexible Grid that gives clients the flexibility to scale data management across regional or global clusters while mixing different hardware and operating systems....This easy-to-deploy and manage innovation lowers operating costs by reducing the need for new hardware, and reducing administration time up to 80%.


Click through to the full press release for additional details and examples of the client and partner momentum Informix is seeing (including quantified benefits being seen by organizations such as DHL, M Systems International, QueBIT and Oncor, and Rol Manufacturing).  

To cite just one example:  "'Our initial testing has shown that with an Informix based solution we are able to reduce the storage requirements by two thirds and speed the query performance up to 60 times compared to the existing solution,' said  Donny Helm, Director Technology, Strategy, & Architecture at Oncor."

Recap: Insight 2014 Day 3 General Session
Thu, Oct 30th 2014 10:12a   Adam Gartenberg
I found the Day 3 general session of Insight 2014 to be quite interesting for a number of reasons. Captain Richard Phillip's first-hand account of his ordeal and rescue was fascinating, and Kevin Spacey's keynote was one of the more inspiring messages at a conference like this. On the business side, the challenges faced by Singapore in identifying illegal or dangerous activities in and around their ports was eye opening, and then of course there was the little matter of the landmark partners [read] Keywords: ibm notes community enterprise network twitter

Today's general session from Insight 2014 was interesting for a number of reasons (including an inspiring talk by Kevin Spacey), but I want to draw attention to an announcement made right in the middle of it: IBM's partnership with Twitter to integrate all tweets (sinceTwitter's inception) and full ongoing live stream into IBM's cloud-based analytics, customer engagement platforms and consulting services.

Last week IBM's Institute for Business Value released their latest analytics study. The important takeaway this time around: The need for speed.

Enter the speed advantage. Our sixth annual analytics study revealed a small group embracing this shift for competitive advantage. These orga [read] Keywords: ibm

Recap: Insight 2014 Day 2 General Session
Tue, Oct 28th 2014 1:12p   Adam Gartenberg
There were some great demos in today's Insight general session (and this technology is always better in live demos than pre-recorded ones, isn't it? I've included the rough time stamps should you want to fast forward the replay once available to just see the demos.) There was also a lot shared about how Watson technology is being applied to help oncologists, police investigators, and even chefs. (See the link below for a chance to become a beta tester for Chef Watson).

When you've got a new solution being compared to the transformational power of the spreadsheet and the iPhone, you just might be on to something.
