Paul remains a highly regarded Informix consultant and currently sits on the IBM Customer Advisory Council and served for two and half years on the board of the Informix International User Group.

"Growth is not just about getting bigger, it's also about getting smarter and using our experience to get the most out of the available technology." - Paul Watson.

The Products


Informix is pure-dead-brill.

Informix remains an incredibly reliable product and continually out-performs all the competition. Oninit® is still supporting some customer installations where their production environment runs on obsolete hardware and their applications are still out-perform Oracle!

Thinking of upgrading or migrating? Oninit® has developed a simple benchmark toolkit to quickly and easily compare new hardware, new versions and, heavens forbid, even alternative databases.

IDS is pure elegance and we want to talk to more companies that want to push the technology by exploring Datablade applications.
