The Informix Newsletter is finally back!Informix Newsletter is a spark plug

After almost three years of vacancy the Informix newsletter editorial staff publishes a new issue!

By the end of 2017, the editorial team, consisting mainly of IBM Informix employees, had published 125 issues of the popular Informix newsletter. With the integration of HCL into the further development of Informix, personnel changes followed. In the end, it was the EU guidelines of the GDPR that prevented further distribution among IBM.

With the logistic support of the German Informix User Group (IUG) the proven team is now back, offering the latest news, technical tips and tricks around Informix.

Issue Q3-2021 now available!

Main topics in the current newsletter are for example:

  • TechTipp: Configuration of a binary backup on a RSS Secondary Server.
  • TechTipp: SMI - Sysmaster Interface, introduction of new entries and a view for the usage of TempSpaces
  • TechTipp: New features in the IBM INFORMIX Health Check.
