Postgres VisionOpen source data management is evolving with the pace of digital business. Rapid innovation demands technologies that are cost effective, deploy rapidly in the cloud, and adapt to changing requirements. Explore how innovation in Postgres and the open source ecosystem will meet today’s challenges at Postgres Vision, June 26-28 in Boston.

Digitalization—the integrated use of analytics, big data, the cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile—is driving change at unprecedented rates. The diverse nature of digital applications demands that IT managers adopt new data management strategies and solutions to manage a greater variety of data types, larger data volumes, and ingestion at unparalleled velocity – the so-called three “V”s of modern big data management.

An entirely new conversation on the role of open source has begun, driven by the convergence of new digital business transformation initiatives, the rapid expansion of mature open source data technologies, the fast-growing list of enterprise success stories and ROI, and the maturity of companies that deliver these open source technologies. Open source database technologies are now growing at six times the rate of traditional DBMS options.

Postgres Vision was created as a forum for the sharpest minds in open source as organizations strive to harvest greater strategic value and actionable insight from their data. Discussion and exploration of enterprise data management transformation carves new avenues for using Postgres and other innovative open source solutions.

Postgres Vision will be June 26-28 at the Royal Sonesta Boston hotel on the Charles River with EnterpriseDB, the database platform company for digital business, and MIT co-hosting. MIT’s Kathleen Kennedy will be the event emcee.  

Data scientist Hilary Mason, Founder of Fast Forward Labs and Data Scientist in Residence at Accel Partners, will keynote Postgres Vision 2017. She joins a growing all-star agenda of thought leaders, company executives, and technologists from Forrester Research, Insurance Australia Group (IAG), Forrester Research, MasterCard, McKinsey & Co., TripAdvisor, as well as the PostgreSQL Global Development Group and other open source community leaders.

Postgres is central to the conversation about new digital initiatives involving open source technologies because most enterprises have to integrate data, from both existing legacy systems and new data sources. Postgres is unique to open source solutions in its capacity to connect, easily and seamlessly, with Oracle, and SQL Server, and MySQL, along with the new databases, from MongoDB, to Cassandra, to Hadoop.
