1010data

The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

IBM Informix

Great for:
  • demanding industrial automation processing
  • infrastructures required complex replication schemas, with servers located on different places/regions/countries
  • Applications intensively using Timestamp and or geospatial
  • Simplifying DBMS by using at the same time SQL and NoSQL, needless to use separately RDBMS and NoSQL DBMS
  • Amazingly low requirements for DBA staff, in general, Informix is good for companies who like simplicity and efficiency
Less appropriate for:
  • Informix being a pay-for solution, it may not be recommended for companies who do not want to spend money for a DBMS,
  • Also Informix is not good for companies who refuse to consider anything than the top 5

Pros

  • Crunches huge datasets
  • Has versatility in functionality and grouping capabilities
  • Native XML macro language is easy to master
  • The platform has great visualization tools
  • Industry leading OLTP performance.
  • Excellent Data Warehouse performance from the basic engine. Outstanding Data Warehouse performance from the Informix Warehouse Accelerator module.
  • Best embedability among major RDBMS systems.
  • Scalable from the smallest Raspberry PI up to the largest monolithic systems and out to dozens of distributed nodes.
  • Hybrid data capabilities to merge relational data with time seriesv, geospacial data, JSON data and other non-traditional data types with performance comparable or better than systems dedicated to those data types.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
  • Honestly, not much. IBM and HCL have excellent product feature feedback mechanisms with an online system for users to offer feature improvements and suggestions. Many are incorporated in new releases. The latest includes two such user suggested features for example.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.
I have participated in evaluations of Informix versus most of its competing RDBMS engines. In all of those evaluations, when performance, ease of maintenance, ROI, and effort required to train staff to proficiency are the criteria of decision, Informix has always been the choice.

Return on Investment

  • This has sped up the process of analysis.
  • We can now automate process which were performed manually.
  • Analysis can be performed more frequently.
  • Informix typically requires fewer DBAs and less time spent by DBA staff on operational and maintenance operations permitting them to concentrate on other issues and reducing ROI.
