Cloud Native Databases for Cloud Native Applications? How It Enables Increased User Productivity.

Build your databases out incorrectly you could be in for slowdowns, availability issues, and increased complexity.   Peter will talk to you about how a new wave of technology and cloud native databases aim to solve the inherent database challenges that exist within cloud native applications.

The Future of Databases in the Cloud

Enterprises are looking to the cloud to simplify IT and support business agility, and many are looking at managed Database-as-a-Service so they can shift their attention from running databases to business innovation. But for organizations unable to move their data to a public cloud, many are considering hybrid or private cloud platforms as alternatives. The question for database managers is whether hybrid cloud platforms can provide the same degree of simplification of public clouds, and whether DBaaS is practical in a hybrid environment. This session will explore the potential of hybrid cloud, to help enterprises manage their expectations.

The State of Data Platforms and Becoming Data Driven

Data growth is expected to skyrocket for the foreseeable future, so what are enterprises to do? How can organizations leverage all their data to become a data-driven enterprise? It begins at the data layer—the place where the data lives. In this session, we will discuss current database landscape, trends, and how organizations can leverage the right data platform environment that will most prepare them to leverage their data, opening the door for deep and lasting organizational value-add. The right data platform matters because organizations must ultimately decide if they want to be data-drivers or data-drifters.
