HCL Informix continues to provide multi-model capabilities such as relational, Spatio-temporal and document (JSON, BSON) stores allowing you the unique capability to access the data across the models in a single query, giving you a truly hybrid environment. Thousands of clients globally trust the reliability of IBM Informix, with its legendary almost zero down time and low administration required. Many clients have been leveraging its unique features like TimeSeries pattern matching, Smart Triggers, encryption, and in-database analytics capabilities.
