Now in its third year, Postgres Vision has already become a leading event for technology and business thought leaders, innovators, developers, and executives from across the globe to meet and explore the future of Postgres in the enterprise.
“Organizations are using digital initiatives to create competitive advantage, and they must adapt their business and technology models for new cloud and data-driven digital applications,” said Ed Boyajian, CEO and President, EnterpriseDB. “Postgres is open for business to meet the challenges of building database architectures that are cost efficient, but still provide the functionality and reliability that large enterprises demand. Postgres Vision has become the place where thought leaders, open source developers, and technology companies can exchange ideas on the innovation and agility that Postgres delivers in today's digital business era."
Open source database management systems are now recognized for their maturity and Postgres has achieved a leadership position among DBMS solutions. Organizations evolving their data infrastructures need to rapidly deploy in public and cloud environments, reduce costs so they can invest strategically, and adapt quickly to changing business needs. Postgres and open source DBMS solutions deliver the flexibility required and better support the migration to cloud-based deployment models organizations are seeking.
The theme for Postgres Vision 2018 will be “Postgres in the Cloud” and will include keynote sessions, informational panels, and presentations that will enable organizations to prepare strategies for managing data in the cloud. Content will emphasize the needs of both business decision makers and technical problem solvers with a range of topics, such as migrating from legacy database systems, adoption of Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) solutions, preparing for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), incorporating agility frameworks and DevOps methods, and new Postgres capabilities. The ever popular Lightning Talks will also return.
