Event Description

Migrating away from legacy databases can seem like a daunting undertaking. But it doesn’t have to be. Today, 80% of IT leaders like you expect to increase their use of enterprise open source software for emerging technologies, including their DBMS. This trend coincides with increased migration from legacy databases and a greater appreciation for the power of open source databases in industries that were once skeptical of these projects.

Why is this? There are a myriad of reasons, each of which speaks to the demands of modernization and digital transformation sweeping organizations big and small. The more important question is “why should this matter to you?”

BWG Connect & EDB invite you to participate in an interactive discussion with your peers.

As always, there will be no sales pitches and there is no cost to join.

Discussion Topics

  • Availability of skilled resources to manage one environment vs. the other (how can the skills today be transferred to EDB Postgres Advanced Server (EPAS)
  • Comparing high availability potential of PostgreSQL to the famously resilient Oracle
  • How to right-size your data in preparation for the move to Postgres
  • Key levers are performance optimization and cost reduction; also scalability plays in the mix
  • Real-world benefits of open source Postgres and the depth and breadth of enterprise-class 3rd party software
  • Evaluating a future platform - evaluating roadmaps, ecosystems and skills depth
