It's a good time for DataMirror," says DataMirror CEO and President Nigel Stokes. Stokes is candid that during the dot-com boom DataMirror's progress was not as prominent as that of other companies. However, the company stayed the course and is surging ahead: "We weren't doing as well when there was just pure hype in the market and people were buying strictly based on that marketing hype, not on substance. DataMirror does well when people spend the time to do due diligence and go through a vendor evaluation."

When stacked up against other enterprise application integration (EAI) vendors, says Stokes, DataMirror shines because "we're profitable, we're stable, we're growing ­ and customers will usually choose us based on those factors. This tougher, more performance-oriented economic climate has fit well with our culture because that's how we sell. We always want to sell from a basis of credibility and actually being able to deliver complete solutions to customers."
