“At MIT Technology Review, we lead the global conversation about technologies that matter.  Enterprise data management draws some of the sharpest minds in open source as organizations strive to harvest greater strategic value and actionable insight from their data. Postgres Vision 2016 will carve new avenues of discussion and exploration of enterprise data management transformation using Postgres and other innovative open source solutions,” said Kathleen Kennedy, President, MIT Technology Review and MIT Enterprise Forum Inc.

“Postgres is breaking all the barriers to open source database adoption. Postgres technology rocks and the ROI is undeniable,” said Ed Boyajian, President and CEO of EDB. “Postgres Vision will showcase enterprises and organizations that succeed by diverting database savings to higher value IT initiatives.” 

Adds Bruce Momjian, a co-founder of the PostgreSQL Global Development Group and EDB Senior Database Architect, “No one would have guessed twenty years ago that the proprietary operating systems would no longer be the default for enterprise deployments. Linux and other open source software are now the defaults. There is no reason that open source databases, particularly Postgres, will not become the defaults in the years ahead."
