IBM started a program called "Data Champions", designed to promote highly visible and respected professionals within the community.
This is your opportunity to put the industry spotlight on the Informix community by nominating individuals who have made the most outstanding contributions to the community over the past 12-18 months. Please note that the deadline for nominations is Feb 8. Please send completed nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program was announced at IOD conference in Las Vegas late last year. With the announcement, we opened the program to the community so anyone can nominate a Data Champion (including self-nominations).
