For years, Informix has been powering the world’s most critical business applications. Thousands of clients globally trust the reliability of Informix, with its legendary almost zero downtime and low administration required. Many clients have been leveraging its unique features like NoSQL, Pattern Matching, Smart Triggers, Time Series, and in-database analytics capabilities. More recently with the rise of IoT, Informix’s small footprint and “set it and forget it” capability have made it attractive to full-stack IoT solution developers as they embed Informix in millions of devices and sensors.
One of the key features that makes Informix the ideal choice as an IoT database is its built-in support for MQTT protocol. It allows users to publish data to an Informix database directly via MQTT. This article will show the users how to do it and we will be using the informix sample code that is available in the GitHub repository -https://github.com/informix/samples-MQTT-python.

In this post we look at methods to define data marts in the Informix Warehouse Accelerator (IWA). IWA is a software appliance for the Informix database server, using in-memory, columnar data storage for business intelligence applications doing OLAP. For such workloads IWA typically can achieve a query acceleration of 10 - 100 times faster than running the workload within the Informix database server.
