Gartner guys reacted on a recent analyst report which stated that in 2015, the industry would begin retiring Sybase and Informix products. We’ve already seen so many such reports stating Informix is dead, or will be in the near future, that I’m used to ignoring all of them, but it’s nice to see Gartner investigate and state the opposite.
Here is the link to the article (first there is a part on Sybase, and Informix follows). What gives additional warmth to the heart, is the recognition of an IIUG as one of the important things when talking Informix. Kudos, Donald and Merv!
