We are now offering annual subscriptions to our IFX Business Message Specification database application, which deliver benefits that had previously been available only to Forum members. The IFX BMS application includes an XSD generation facility. A subscription includes access to the automated XSD generator for both IFX Version 1.X and IFX Version 2.x.
Annual subscriptions are priced at $1,995 for up to three named users, and $2,995 for a domain-wide (enterprise) license. Renewals after the first year are discounted $1,000 from the original license cost.
License agreement and subscription form are available for download below. Please fill in and return the form and signature page of the license agreement to the IFX Forum as directed. An invoice will be sent to you, and as soon as subscription payment is received, you will be given subscribers' access to the IFX BMS application.
Excerpts from the press release:
"We are offering subscriptions to the IFX BMS application in order to significantly reduce the effort of developing IFX solutions," said IFX Forum President Richard P. Urban. "The subscription option provides a way to further adoption while continuing to respect the benefits of full membership.
“The productivity gains afforded to developers are dramatic," he said. "At the push of a button the application generates XML schemas that are 100% consistent with the IFX standard. The productivity gains for developers and quality assurance improvements will result in savings that can recover the cost of the annual subscription within weeks.”
