Date -2010-03-15 EnterpriseDB CEO Selected to Speak at Open Source Business Conference 2010
Ed Boyajian to deliver session on open source disruption in the database market
WESTFORD, Mass., March 15, 2010 - EnterpriseDB, the enterprise Postgres company, today announced that President and Chief Executive Officer Ed Boyajian will deliver a presentation at the upcoming Open Source Business Conference (OSBC) 2010. During his session, Boyajian will discuss the open source revolution currently underway in the $19 billion database industry and the resulting pressures proprietary database vendors are facing.
"From Oracle's newfound ownership of MySQL, to organizations' continued scrutiny of IT department budgets, the database has taken center stage as an area ripe for an open source uprising," said Boyajian. "That said, MySQL was never designed to be a general purpose enterprise-class database that could pose a real threat to the big proprietary database vendors. It's the true open source solutions like PostgreSQL that are built to support high-transaction enterprise environments that could potentially unseat the top proprietary database vendors and their core business."
Boyajian's presentation, titled Database Disruption Finally Underway: The Biggest Infrastructure Market Yet to Fall to Open Source, will take place on Thursday, March 18, 2010 from 3:00 - 3:50 p.m. PT at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco. As part of the Innovations, Tools and Solutions track, this session will examine how leading companies are moving more traditional, mainstream workloads to open source databases - ultimately putting real pressure on proprietary database vendors.
The Open Source Business Conference is an ideal forum for leading organizations that want to learn about new ways to leverage open source for competitive advantage. As a Gold sponsor, EnterpriseDB joins other elite open source vendors to educate attendees on the benefits of using open source -- from cutting costs to boosting productivity and fostering innovation.
