Our customers have told us that they think about SOA in terms of a lifecycle. They start in the Model phase by gathering business requirements and designing their business processes. Once they have optimized the business processes, they implement it by combining new and existing services. The assets are then deployed into a secure and integrated environment for integrating people, processes and information. Once deployed, customers manage and monitor from both an IT and a business perspective. Information gathered during the Manage phase is fed back into the lifecycle for continuous process improvement. Underpinning all of these lifecycle stages is governance which provides guidance and oversight for the SOA project.
IDS provides Web Services support with JFoundation JAVA Engine, and the Web & XLST DataBlades, along with XML generating UDR, to handle XML input. They enable IDS to provide and consume web services. J2EE and EGL applications connecting to IDS can invoke web services via the WebSphere Application Server, or applications can develop web services using JDBC, WORF/DADX, and JAVA. Alternatively, IDS supports Windows web services via the Internet Information Server (IIS) with the .NET interface. For Open Source environments, web services are enabled via the Apache/Tomcat Server with the PHP interface. In addition, IDS is supported by other SOA enabling tools such as the Rational Application Developer for WebSphere for developing and testing JAVA and EGL web applications, WebSphere MQ for reliable message delivery and publish-subscribe message support on the Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), WebSphere Process Server to facilitate definition and management of SOA business processes, and WebSphere Information Integrator further extends the reach of loosely coupled information and services with products that provide federation, replication, enterprise search, and event publishing.

Protected your country… Facilitated social harmony and sustainable development… Made a hotel reservation… Tracked the design of your next Porsche… Enabled emergency response systems… Helped you pay for petrol… Made it easier to pay taxes, to make a phone call, to get directions, to insure your home, to pay a bill online, to surf the web, to go to the doctor, and more… IDS v10 is IBM’s newest database for industrial-strength, embedded solutions Roadmaps and plans are in place, ensuring a strong future Deeper and wider integration with other IBM products underway Business Partner commitment We call it schema evolution . It’s patent-pending technology that allows rolling application upgrades on Informix Dynamic Server v.10 with Enterprise Replication. End users never skip a beat. Perhaps what we are really doing is working to make downtime obsolete.
Time and time again, when real world benchmarks of IDS are done against the competition, IDS comes out on top. If necessary, offer to benchmark IDS against the competition using the customer’s application. Informix has won many accounts this way and will continue to do so. Oracle is the king of unbundling key functionality and making the customer pay through the nose to get what we provide as standard features of our database. URL to article on news.com http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1007-201-6375299-2.html Informix supports all of the most common development methodologies & environments. Whether the customer wants to use traditional client server using 4GL or our ESQL/C or they want to take the leap into EJB application servers, Informix is there for you. The biggest impact of IDS is its real simplicity of management. Don’t let the fancy GUI’s of the competition fool you. With Informix, the many common database administrator tasks are either not necessary because of how our products are designed, or the Informix tools allow them to be executed quickly and easily. Many of our customers that use Informix & Oracle find that their Informix databases require ½ to 1/3 of the DBA resources!!! Do the math! Top flight DBA’s are expensive and cutting that cost in half or by 2/3’s will dramatically cut your annual operating expenses.
Designed with the mid-market in mind, IDS Express combines a robust, self-managing database engine that provides the power, function, and reliability needed by On Demand Business with simplicity in packaging, installation and deployment at a minimal investment cost. Developed in conjunction with IBM Business Partners, IDS Express easily integrates with Business Partner solutions and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the business partner’s application. Because IDS supports a wide array of development paradigms business partners and customers can leverage their existing skills and reduce time to value. IDS Express is built on Dynamic Scalable Architecture which responds quickly and seamlessly to unexpected events to provide uninterrupted service and keep management costs low. This architecture means that customers can confidently deploy thousands of instances of IDS anywhere in the world and support them centrally without an army of DBA’s. These features have caused business partners to embed IDS in electronics, network management equipment, telecommunications service assurance equipment, emergency response systems, retail systems, medical systems and thousands of other applications that require high performance and reliability without the expense and hassle normally associated with managing enterprise RDBMS.
Informix Dynamic Server has always been an industry leader in Best-of-Breed RDBMS solutions for On-Line Transaction Processing. IDS 9.40 was designed to meet the increasing demands of our OLTP customers. Over 600 feature requests were reviewed for inclusion in 9.40. Selected features provided improvements in the 6 key areas that concern OLTP customers most: Performance, Scalability, Availability, Security, Reduced Administration and Time to Value. IDS 9.40 is the fastest IDS engine ever, faster than IDS 7.31. In the area of performance, buffer management was improved to reduce I/O and ensure highest demand pages remained in memory. The B-Tree Cleaner was replaced with a tunable B-Tree Scanner to eliminate bottlenecks during mass deletes and improve performances of indexes. Many IDS customers are fast approaching the 4TB limit of IDS. 9.40 removes this limitation by eliminating the 2GB chunk limit and increasing the number of chunks that can be created. The inability to add a chunk when chunk 0 is full has also been eliminated, improving scalability and eliminating an administrative headache. For High Availability, IDS 9 introduced industry-leading Enterprise Replication capability to compliment our existing High Availability Replication. Until now, the two features could not co-exist on the same instance. This limitation has been removed making IDS the most flexible answer for 24x7, always on, applications. IDS 9.40 has improved encryption capabilities. It now supports Plug-in Authentication Modules and full encryption for client server communications via the OpenSSL encryption libraries. Administration with IDS 9.40 becomes even easier with the introduction of the ability to rename chunks during level 0 cold restores, new RAS features to display more information with onstat; including the value for variables being processed by SQL statements. Explain can now be invoked for running sessions, eliminating the need to capture and re-execute troublesome queries. Other features introduced with earlier 9 versions, such as dynamic lock management and dynamic logging help further reduce administration costs associated with IDS. IDS 9.40 improves time to value by introducing application development features to improve developer productivity. These include 3.1.1 Unicode support by leveraging existing IBM technology, the ability to set locales dynamically for a session making multi-language programming easier than ever. SQL-99 join syntax, sequences and named return parameters are now supported which make porting applications from other database platforms such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server faster than ever. The performance, Reliability, Availability and Scalability of IDS 9.40 make it the clear choice for demanding, 24x7 OLTP environments
