So what can AGS products do for you? This question is best answered by a quote from one of our customers — "Managing Informix databases with antiquated command-line tools is sometimes like speeding down a crumbling mountain road at 90 miles per hour in an old clunker; secure in the knowledge that repairs are scheduled for next month.

"It brings Informix Database Administration into the 21st Century, replacing ancient command line tools with modern graphical tools. I really can't image how Informix DBA's survived without it!"

"I have enjoyed working with Server Studio. It makes everything very easy to manage. This is the best product I have used in daily working with Informix."

Linwood Jarratt
Lake County Administration, Illinois

"It is simple. Server Studio is the perfect product. It covers all our needs and what is most important it is simple to use. We mainly use it to create manage and test/debug Stored Procedures. The SPL Debugger is a wonderful tool that have saved us a lot of work."

Throstur Jonsson

"I user Server Studio extensively on a daily basis. Our criminal justice system database is extremely complex and extensive. Without Server Studio, SQL development for reporting purposes would be nightmarish. It is not unusual to see a set of queries involving more that 200 separate steps, required for producing a single report. ... Thank you and congratulations on a very powerful and comprehensive product."
