Open Source software solutions are nothing new. Free – as in freedom – software was introduced nearly immediately after software and hardware got separated, in the ’50 of the last century. We see a surge in the adoption of Open Source, especially as more complex systems get introduced as open solutions. This presentation discusses the various “waves” we can observe in Open Source solutions and how they actually interact. Many of today’s disruptive developments are powered by Open Source solutions and by being fully aware of this, we can harness its power. How do databases fit in this equation? How do relational databases fit in this equation specifically? What does the database landscape look like, and where does Open Source fit in? Interesting questions in today’s world, from all angles, such as business, operations, development. Join this talk and get more insight into the wonderful world of data storage, data processing and information delivery!
There is a lot of disruption going on at present time. These changes range from "the adoption to big data", through “migration to the cloud” and focus shifts within businesses. Creating opportunities to explore and adopt all these changes are important. Renewal of legacy systems and opportunities to build new applications, are important but can be very expensive. Using a smart alternative data platform can help you out. In this session you will see the possibilities of PostgreSQL in the EnterpriseDB Postgres Server edition. You will be able to asses if this platform is the right alternative for you to disrupt your operation and open doors to new success.
