Highlights: IIUG Board of 2006 elections, Informix User Forum 2005
Welcome to the International Informix Users Group (IIUG) Insider! Designed for IIUG members and Informix user group leaders, this publication contains timely and relevant information for the IBM Informix community.
First I would like to thank JGP for his great job on the October issue of the Insider. I am back home after a month in Brazil and I miss it already. I love Brazil, the country, the culture and above all the people. I must correct one phrase in JGP's editorial. Everywhere I have been there was water electricity and as you can see from the picture, taken at Matadores beach in the island of Florianopolis, even Internet access.
Now that we have the past covered let's address the future. We hope to meet many of you in the Atlanta forum a two-day Informix user conference that will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, on December 8-9, 2005. You can find more about it in the following section. Or visit http://www.iiug.org/waiug/present/Forum2005/Forum2005.html
If you have made it to Atlanta or if you haven't, do not miss the IDUG/IIUG conference in Tampa, Florida 7-11 May 2006. Five days of top technical presentations and meeting Informix users, developers and experts. We are planning to continue supplying content in the IIUG Insider and the IIUG web page powered by our new Sun server and to provide you with a communication channel via our SIGs.
The IIUG board is planning to focus on reaching countries with small or nonexistent members and to continue the growth of our user community.
The elections for the 2006 board will commence soon. As a board member for the passed two years I highly recommend you run for the board. It is hard work on top of your regular jobs but it is time and effort well spent. In any case please dedicate a few minutes to vote for the nominees you would like to see on the board for year 2006.
IBM has named IDS 10 as its flagship database for pure OLTP and embedded computing we are sure that in 2006 will continue its commitment and hope to see Informix gaining its place as the best OLTP database in the market.
My email address is still: email@example.com
We have 14 candidates for 11 Board slots and the polls are open! If you are an IIUG member as of 18 November 2005, you can cast your vote at:
You can view the candidate names and their election statements on the ballot page as well as at:
Everyone on the existing board is standing for election and we have three new candidates. This gives us a diverse list with candidates from USA, France, United Kingdom, Portugal, Israel, and New Zealand.
The election is being run on an independent server linked from the IIUG website, under the supervision of the IIUG Nomination Committee.
Please cast your vote today! The polls will remain open until 9 December 2005 23:59 GMT.
Informix User Forum 2005 - Moving Forward With Informix Solutions for IBM Informix Users A Two-Day User Group Technical Conference December 8-9 in Atlanta, GA.
Preparations are continuing for Informix User Forum 2005 that will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, December 8-9.
This year's Forum will feature two full days of technical sessions, plus vendor exhibits and presentations. We will have not only well known Informix experts presenting, but also a number of speakers who may be not so widely known but are nonetheless qualified. Two of our presenters, Lester Knutsen and Darryl Priest, took top honors for their sessions at the IDUG/IIUG conference earlier this year in Denver.
As someone close to the planning process, I can report that interest in this conference is high, with it garnering even international attention. For the latest details on the sessions, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors, visit the Forum Web site using the links listed below.
Informix User Forum 2005 promises to provide great technical content, plus opportunities to network with fellow users and gain access to information on the latest vendor offerings. This, combined with an registration fee of US$90.00 for the entire conference, makes the value of this event hard to beat.

Hi everyone, this is Kate Tomchik, the current IIUG Webmaster. During the Board of Directors meeting in October, a number of improvements were suggested. As a result, you will see the following new features when you log in to http://www.iiug.org:
If you have any suggestions for improving the usefulness of this web page, please send an email to me, email@example.com.
IBM Express Runtime now allows IDS Express to deliver an integrated middleware stack with your application
With the release of IBM Express Runtime 2.1.1, IBM Informix Dynamic Server Express Edition v. 10 is now included as one of the two integrated database components for this preintegrated middleware stack.
IBM Express Runtime is a unique middleware infrastructure stack designed to reduce complexity and drive greater ease of use for IBM's Business Partners and their mid-market customers so that they can build on IBM Express Middleware. Express Runtime combines a choice of Express database--DB2 UDB or IDS--along with IBM WebSphere Application Server Express and IBM HTTP Server.
A key feature of Express Runtime is the Solution Assembly Toolkit which has shown to reduce the deployment time for Cognos by as much as 80% (http://www.iiug.org/url/cognos.html).
For more information on IBM Express Runtime, go to http://www.developer.ibm.com/isv/ir/expressruntime.html
Currently we host 26 Special Interest Groups covering not only classic Informix topics like IDS, admin tools and the like, but also thirds party applications, development tools and specific French, Spanish, Portuguese and German language groups. Some of these groups have had very little activity over the last 2 years. Therefore we propose to reorganize and consolidate the groups as follows.
In response to your input, we have created a page on the IIUG web site containing all the links we used to include. Please find it at: http://www.iiug.org/quicklinks.html
The International Informix Users Group (IIUG) is an organization designed to enhance communications between its worldwide user community and IBM. IIUG's membership database now exceeds 25,000 entries and enjoys the support and commitment of IBM's Data Management division. Key programs include local user groups and special interest groups, which we promote and assist from launch through growth.
