INFORMIX INTRODUCES INFORMIX DEVELOPER NETWORK

New Program Provides "One-Stop-Shop" Information Delivery Program for
Informix Developer Community

SAN JOSE, Calif. (February 24, 1997) Informix Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:IFMX),
the leading provider of innovative database technology, introduced today, at
its Worldwide Partner Developer and Business Forum in San Jose, Calif., the
Informix Developer Network (IDN).  The IDN is an aggressive, new program,
developed for developers by developers, that will provide advanced,
technical information and knowledge transfer to the growing Informix
developer community worldwide.  The IDN will also provide exclusive
information about Informix architecture, technology, products and developer
services to Informix partners and application developers.

Based on the Informix Universal Web Architecture, the IDN features a
dedicated Web site that is structured as a subscription-based information
delivery program. IDN subscribers will have access to many services such as
a self-help system and knowledge base to resolve problems, simplified
software development kits, regular product update releases, knowledge
transfer programs, and an on-line knowledge base.  Developers will also be
able to communicate and interact with other Informix developers through a
private IDN forum and news groups.  The IDN Web site is also linked to other
Informix developer support programs such as the DataBlade Developers Program.

Informix's advanced publish and subscribe technology will enable the IDN to
become a "one-stop-shop" for application developers. Once a partner has
registered its profile and preferences with IDN, the partner will be able to
receive customized solutions, access to the developer self-help knowledge
base and receive early access to Informix's new products and technology.
The program will also offer customized information, grouped by technology
such as C, C++, or Java,  to ensure the delivery of proactive and timely,
technical information to IDN subscribers' specific needs.

"The Informix Developer Network will help developers create new applications
that will differentiate themselves in the marketplace and help deliver
competitive advantage to the organizations they support," said Martin
Brauns, vice president, Worldwide Channels and Partners. "Through the
dedicated Web site and other service offerings, the IDN will provide an
exciting information base for any developer who wants to write an
application with the leading, most advanced database technology in the
industry."

The IDN is an evolving set of services and deliverables that will continue
to grow and be improved throughout 1997.  Currently, the IDN plans to
provide a dedicated track at the Informix Worldwide User Conference in San
Francisco, Ca. in July 1997.   Informix is also planning to organize other
IDN developer events and services, such as seminars and workshops.  A
reference CD, which will include new release information, technology
updates, sample code, developer documentation and release notes,  and a
regular product CD, which will include information on new products or
components, are also planned.

More information about IDN will be available beginning on February 28 by
visiting the IDN Web site at http//www.informix.com.idn.

Is it just me, or have we (The USENET community) been replaced
by yet another for profit venture of Informix?

Yes Mike, it's just you :-)
If (a big one) Informix price this right, it's interesting.
I don't think the c.d.i. will have any competition at all.
The issue is to get tools from Informix in a better way, get more
access to more info about what they are doing, get a more formalized
way for feedback and so on.
Other major companies have been doing this for years. It's about time
Informix does it as well.
Their problem of course is that their tools bussiness is realy not
doing too well right now. May be it could become a little better with
more feedback.
