The webinar, sponsored by EnterpriseDB, will feature Eric Lundquist, vice president of strategic content at Ziff Davis Enterprises, Larry Alston, EnterpriseDB vice president of product management and marketing, and Justin Codd, senior database administrator for AQA. In this exclusive presentation, Codd will detail how AQA effectively leveraged PostgreSQL and EnterpriseDB solutions to lower the total cost of delivering business applications in an enterprise IT environment.

AQA is a registered non-profit charitable organization that provides services to teachers, examiners, moderators and students. It has more than 1,000 permanent staff and over 35,000 teachers, lecturers, advisers and consultants who assist in setting and marking exams for over 3.5 million students annually. By utilizing Postgres Plus as the database solution for its 'Examiner Extranet,' AQA empowers its users with reliable, real-time access to core business data in a secure and highly cost-effective manner, ultimately saving the non-profit organization valuable capital and ongoing operational expenses.

This one-hour webinar is designed to provide attendees with the basics needed to properly consider, evaluate and deploy an open source database solution. Attendees will learn:

  • How to leverage existing database assets;
  • How low total cost of ownership and compatibility with the existing IT infrastructure can be key drivers in the decision to use an open source database solution; and
  • How to develop an open source database ROI analysis that includes reduced license fees, lower maintenance costs and backward compatibility.

EnterpriseDB's solutions are based on PostgreSQL, the only fully functional open source RDBMS in the market. The PostgreSQL community is over 15 years old and is the only true open source database community. With over 200 active committers, thousands of contributors worldwide and millions of downloads a year, PostgreSQL has emerged as the open source database of choice for corporate IT developers.
