ARMONK, N.Y. -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today unveiled new database software to help companies make decisions more intelligently and maximize sales opportunities while reducing expenses.

With new Informix database software, global companies, for the first time, can both warehouse their data and conduct ultra fast online transactions with a simplified software platform. The combination of the two capabilities in one offering can help deliver new results and insights to grow businesses and lower costs by making it easier to use existing Informix infrastructure to help clients work as much as 50% more efficiently.

To effectively compete in todays challenging global economy, companies are now recognizing the need to use information more effectively. Right now, 85% of CIOs do not believe their information is currently well managed and shared across the entire business. In addition, most companies lack a cohesive strategy to get the most value from their information.

"On a daily basis, our organization needs to extract patient data to track outstanding claims that are long overdue. It used to take us months to collect information that we are now able to retrieve in a matter of minutes," said Dan Contaldi, vice president, Information Technology, Women's Health. "Now, this technology allows more time for our central billing staff to focus on the business rather than spending hours sifting through the maze of outstanding claims. We see the addition of the Informix warehousing capabilities providing a complete and cost efficient solution."
