Business fears the Net: Informix

Business fears the Net: Informix


Businesses are developing Web sites under duress, fearful of the size, speed and possible success of the Internet, Informix US marketing head Diane Fraiman said last week.

"The Internet is a largely untapped market and no one has dominance. We estimate the Internet will be worth to business $US270 billion over the next 12 months," Fraiman told ARN.

"Businesses are reluctantly developing a Web presence. They are doing it because their competitors are and they're fearful as success is not guaranteed and, until now, no one has known the total cost of a Web solution.

"Informix is delivering to its customers via partners pre-priced, pre-tested Web solutions," she said.

Fraiman is visiting Australia informing corporate chiefs that Informix is not only a database com-pany but also a Web solutions and business intelligence provider.

Informix is a $US800 million company of which Australia and New Zealand claims between 3 and 4 per cent of its market. It boasts growth across the last seven quarters.
