1:00PM - 2:00PM - Track 4: For the Ecosystem Transforming the Modern Enterprise Database

Sponsored by:

Not too long ago, the Holy Grail in data was the biggest, baddest relational database. But, like with everything else in IT, change has come. The rapid change was forced by new types of data from new sources, and the need to drive real time decision making.  This has led to changes in traditional DBs, as well as a sea of new databases and data analytic systems.  All require large and fast memory sub-systems, which tend to drive costs, which limit affordability for some workloads. OpenPOWER systems are addressing these requirements with innovative use of accelerator and flash technology designed and developed in an open, collaborative community (much like the way open source software has been developed for over a decade). These new designs extend the range of affordability in driving innovative new workload deployments.

The Innovation Economy and Why it Matters

Kathleen Kennedy, President, MIT Technology Review, Postgres Vision Emcee

For 116 years, MIT Technology Review has reported on important technologies and innovators with the mission to equip our audiences with the insights to understand a world shaped by technology. In the era of globalization, no one company or country can stand alone to ignite and sustain the degree or diversity of innovation needed to keep pace with the rapid changes occurring across industries and borders. There is no greater innovation enabler than the open source movement. Standing on a platform of collaboration, the free marketplace of ideas breaks down the walls between both the developers and the enterprise to produce the opportunity needed to be competitive in the data-rich 21st century. In this keynote, Kathleen sets the stage for the Postgres model as critical to accelerating shared knowledge as a pathway toward solving organizational technology challenges.
