For example, global logistics organisation DHL uses Informix to help manage over 500,000 information checkpoints required to track more than 75,000 individual shipments per day.

In the gaming environment, Gameshow Network’s number one need is reliability and scalability – 750,000 games are played each day on GSN, 24/7, so any impact on uptime is critical to its revenue stream.

Thanks to Trafficmaster’s popular Smartnav service, Informix also helps drivers - by calculating their best route and suggesting alternatives when it’s congested. Spending less time stuck in traffic reduces congestion and carbon emissions associated with fuel consumption and idling.

And in the Hildebrand smart metering project, British customers are now able to monitor energy usage in their own homes in real-time. At the same time, it gives the utility a time stamp that allows it to analyze data for economic and sales forecasting, budgetary analysis, yield projections and workload forecasts.
