Guest speaker Carl Olofson, Research Vice President at IDC, will discuss how to determine if you should move your mission critical database to the cloud. While there are compelling reasons to do so, there are many decisions to consider. Will the database be well supported in the cloud? Does it make sense to abandon the intellectual property of your database applications for some other technology that will require a complete reworking of your applications and databases?
Emma McGrattan, Actian’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, will wrap up with a brief highlight of Ingres NeXt, an exciting new strategy to support your modernization journey for Ingres and OpenROAD.
Attend this presentation to learn:
- The top benefits to be expected in moving to the cloud
- What a cloud-native database is and why it matters
- Characteristics users should demand from a managed database cloud service
- How to choose between staying with your database technology or switching
- How Ingres and OpenROAD customers can accelerate and de-risk modernization
