Forrester Total Economic Impact Study For IBM Informix

Few companies have a meaningful way to measure the value of IT and IT projects before making an investment. Technology providers frequently talk about features and functions but sometimes forget to help potential clients understand benefits.

Recently, IBM commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) that organizations may realize by deploying IBM® Informix® database software. The study uses a comprehensive methodology to bring third-party, objective ROI analysis to organizations considering the use of Informix.

The conclusion? IBM Informix delivers high performance and cost efficiency, including administration efficiency, reduced downtime, improved server utilization, and reduced support costs. But don’t take our word for it. Read the report for yourself.
