Key take aways from today s discussion





IDS is a strategic data server in theInformation Management portfolio

IDS has a rich history of innovation and technology leadership that will continue well into the future

You have an advantage over your competitors because IDS is not a commodity

IDS is the optimal data server for high-transaction OLTP environments

Key take-aways from today’s discussion

Recent milestones
Recent Milestones
