2000-01-15 New Informix People in the Ft. Lauderdale Office
Well the world didn't come to an end on January 1, 2000, and we are all alive and kicking for the new year. 

New People!

Informix Ft. Lauderdale now has some new people!

  • Al Diaz, Sales Engineer, formerly with NCR 14 years, South Florida native
  • Larry Sullivan, Field Marketing Rep, formerly with IBM
  • Janet Marotta, Field Marketing Rep, formerly with NCR
  • We welcome these new people, and hope the best for them as they kick things in gear for the new year.  Joyce McConnell, Sales Engineer, stepped down from Informix to pursue some new opportunities of her own, and we wish her the best of success as well.

    Please be sure to contact our local sales office for more information on contacting these folks, and letting them help you.  Informix is stepping up their commitment to this area, as well as all of Florida. They are listening and doing what you have been wanting for quite some time.
     

    1999-10-27   MIGRATION to IDS.2000 NEWS 
    Thanks to Dennis Leibold, Informix Sales, Ft. Lauderdale!
    INFORMIX DYNAMIC SERVER.2000

    Migration from IDS/UD to Informix Dynamic Server.2000 will be considered a valid upgrade pathway by Informix; under standard update/upgrade policies, IDS/UD customers with valid support contracts are eligible to upgrade to Informix Dynamic Server.2000 at no charge. 

    Although migration from IDS 7.x to Informix Dynamic Server.2000 will be considered a trade-up under standard policy, through August 31, 2000 existing IDS 7.x customers with valid support contracts will be allowed to upgrade Informix Dynamic Server.2000 at no additional charge. After August 31, 2000, standard trade-up policies will apply to this transaction. 

    INFORMIX INTERNET FOUNDATION.2000

    Since Informix Internet Foundation.2000 is a new product offering, there is no upgrade path currently available from previous versions or products. Migration from IDS 7.x, IDS/UD 9.x or Informix Dynamic Server.2000 will be considered a trade-up and must follow all standard trade-up policies. 

    All other trade-ups must follow standard Informix Trade-up policies as outlined in the Informix Sales Policy Book. 

    These policies may vary outside of North America. Please refer to your local Informix Sales Policy Book for more details. 

    INFORMIX INTERNET FOUNDATION.2000

    To encourage existing Informix IDS or IDS/UD customers to migrate their licenses to Informix Internet Foundation.2000, Informix will offer promotional pricing through August 31, 2000, as follows: 

    Until August 31, 2000, existing 9.x customers with a valid maintenance contract may trade-up to Informix Internet Foundation.2000 at no charge.

    Until August 31, 2000, existing 7.x customers with a valid maintenance contract may trade-up to Informix Internet Foundation.2000 by paying an additional US$300 per user or US$6000 per CPU. User or CPU counts must match the original license. Additional Users or CPUs may be     added at US$1,800 per user or US$46,000 per CPU.
