We met on Sept 24, and chose the next meeting date of January 15, 2014. Of course, we wanted to avoid December vacations/holidays so the first of next year made sense. We are still working out the details with respect to topics, speakers, etc.
The Sept 4th meeting was a great success! The attendance counted 20, which we felt was very good. The topic of the day was the "Informix Warehouse Accelerator", with 2 presentations from Mike Walker of Advanced Data Tools and Fred Ho from IBM. Topic suggestions for subsequent meetings were gathered, and everyone seemed to enjoy the lunch provided. IWA is an incredible offering from the Informix team that has been available for about 2 1/2 years. It is great for hybrid environments as well as warehouses.
