Why I Picked Postgres over Oracle

Picking a specific database technology is not done overnight. It is not a decision that is taken lightly. You will most probably select a database technology for a long time, as the dogma of database-agnostic has proven not to exist.

Switching database technology is even more challenging. To even consider switching the workhorse under your prized, mission-critical applications, the switch would have to bring serious advantages. Many years, if not decades, have been invested in building and testing everything, why change?

I have invested nearly a quarter of a century working with Oracle technology, yet I made a switch. During this webinar, I want to take you through some of the considerations of this change and perhaps show that picking Postgres over Oracle makes sense.
