A Note from the IIUG President

April 24th started a "new era" for Informix - and I╦m not talking about the ill-fated product of the mid-90s. IBM Data Management is very serious about leveraging fully all the Informix assets it has acquired.

The latest action that underscored IBM╦s interest in the Informix user community was a visit by Paul Rivot -- a representative of IBM's Data Management Group -- to the July IIUG Board of Directors meeting. Paul conveyed IBM's commitment to supporting IIUG programs and services indefinitely. This is welcome news, especially because our membership has now exceeded 13,000 individuals worldwide. Thank you, IBM!

The busiest part of the year for IIUG is here. Our hands are full with board member elections, our content contributions to the IBM Informix Conference (IIC), a major overhaul of our Web server, new and improved membership update pages, and a richer communications program. Please let us know how we╦re doing by sending me an e-mail at

Fred Hubbard
IIUG President

IBM Advertises Informix

IBM triggered an Informix-related advertising campaign on July 12 with print ads in The Wall Street Journal, the San Jose Mercury News and other major newspapers around the world. In addition, IT weeklies, email sponsorships and billboard activity are scheduled to run to augment the print ads and reach key Informix customers in all geographies. A punchy new billboard across the street from Oracle╦s HQ on highway 101 in Redwood City, California, is part of the plan.

IBM Informix Conference - Registration & Discounts

Anyone that is an IIUG member as of September 17, 2001, will be eligible for a $200 discount off the IBM Informix Conference (IIC) fees! If your membership information is outdated or incomplete, please visit immediately.
