Jim, We will likely do this in the fall. We will provide more specific information later this year. Thanks, Joe Kozak.
"Qualified", regardless of product testing or proof of concept, means that there is a real need of migration, budget allocated and a genuine interest in the SQL Skin technology. Thanks.

Our partner IBM just started a roadshow called the "Information Integration and Governance Forum". They have a very interesting agenda with a number of topics that are central to what we are doing with them. The following three slides from the event show key user areas that are usually analyzed by customers before initiating a Sybase to DB2 migration with the DB2 SQL Skin. SLIDE #1 - Distributed and heterogenous databases: Database proliferation on distributed systems and different RDBMS vendors have created numerous challenges on information governance. Challenges that will not be able to be corrected until some level of... Continue reading

ANTs software has made a strategic transformation over the past few years, evolving from a narrow niche tech player into a growing, disruptive force. As the end of 2008 approached, we announced the first deployment of the ANTs Compatibility Server (ACS) with the Wyndham Hotel Group. This announcement was not only a game changing event for our company, it resonated deeply through out the industry. That day in 2008 also caught the eye of the biggest player at the technology table -- IBM. Since teaming with IBM in 2009, they have helped transform ANTs into what we are today. IBM’s...

We have the same goal. Thanks Tim!

As previously announced, we have recently closed on a new round of financing. This additional capital is going to further fund ANTs’ development and go-to-market strategy for our innovative database migration solutions. Some critics contended it would be near impossible for our company to raise capital in today’s environment. However, there are believers out there who understand which direction our company is headed. ANTs software is moving along as anticipated. We’ve signed several contracts over the past few months and revenues from these announced deals will only help to propel us to the next level. Our partnership with IBM grows... Continue reading

Thanks Marcquis for your note. I agree that ANTs is at the beginning of a new journey, a successful journey.
Thanks Tim. That is the goal.
In preparation for Q1 2011, we are creating a series of customer testimonials. This coming Tuesday 12/7 IBM will be producing a video recording with one of this initial users of SQL Skin. We will be sharing the video with you once it has been finalized. 2011 will be a year of expansion of the number of business opportunities and also a year where we take our North American presence with IBM to Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America. In fact, we already have very visible opportunities in these three geographies. Regards, Joe Kozak. Continue reading

I would like to share the following video with you... BJC Healthcare is one of the initial beta customers of DB2 SQL Skin. BJC was interviewed by IBM at the Information on Demand (IOD) Conference. The feedback and support we are getting from BJC is very similar to the feedback that we are getting from other customers. Enjoy! Continue reading

The title to today’s blog couldn’t be more appropriate. Everyone at ANTs is disappointed that our shares have been taking an epic beating. While we know that this is because a very large shareholder has decided to unwind his position with what seems like little concern for the price, we also know that the selling won't last forever. Many of you have asked me "How do we feel about the share price?" .... The answer is simple. First, as painful as it may be, the selling is flushing the "weak hands" out of our stock and, ultimately, that is a... Continue reading

Albert, there is no logic to explain that behavior other than a personal motive. Bruce, thanks for your comment.

We have had a large shareholder selling his position and we have no reason to believe it's motivated by fundamentals but rather by personal needs.

With the announcement of our partnership with IBM behind us, I wanted to give a quick update on where we stand. IBM recently sent sales people down to Atlanta for training in the third quarter for what is typically a heavy sales push in both the third and fourth quarters of this year. When budgets were being prepared in 2009, no one had heard of the DB2 SQL Skin product. With our product now available, the DB2 SQL Skin should be earmarked for 2011 budgets with bookings beginning in the fourth quarter of 2010. This, along with Sybase license renewals...

Thanks Wayne. It was a great session.
Hi David, You are not way off base. Your comments are right on target. Regards, Cesar.
Wayne, I believe a potential merger between Oracle and HP is extremely beneficial to both companies. Oracle needs the critical mass of HP's hardware installed based and HP desperately needs the software solutions that Oracle has. Otherwise, HP in particular could end up being a vendor of hardware commodity and disappear like Sun did. Yes, it sounds strange that a $123B companies follows the fate of Sun but the IT industry is filled with stories of huge hardware vendors that went down because they were unable to transform their companies into a provider of entire solutions. The key to survival is pretty much defined on what Sam Palmisano, IBM's Chairman and CEO said recently (please review my blog entry about it: http://antsblog.typepad.com/ants-software-blogs/2010/09/innovation.html). Back to ANTs, I can say that our technology empowers the vendors that focus in entire solutions by enabling not only database consolidation but also server and storage consolidation. That is the very nature of our current IBM deals. Thanks, Joe.
Wayne, Thanks for your comment.
