ERP Solutions On Informix


I would like to start highlighting new solutions on Informix as well as share information on categories of existing solutions on Informix.   I will add tags to my posts so that you will be able to easily find the categories of  1) types of solutions (ie ERP, CRM, Billing, POS, etc..), 2) Industry solutions (ie: Retail, Telco, Energy & Utilities, etc …), 3) Geographies (USA, China, Europe, etc …) and 4) New to Informix; on posts you are most interested in.

Today I will cover some popular ERP solutions on Informix.  Some are more opportunistic and others are expanding with Informix.  I will highlight which group I perceive them to be in but other than that, these are in no particular order.   Some are in our solutions directory, where I will provide the links in their solution names, and others are not, so I will provide links to their corporate web sites at the end.
