Using New Database Technologies to Drive Competitive Advantage

TDWI Speaker: Colin White, President and Founder of BI Research

Date: Thursday, September 17, 2015

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET

Webinar Abstract

For the past three decades, relational database management systems have formed the bedrock on which most operational and analytics applications have been built. Over this time frame, these systems evolved and matured to the level where database technology became a commodity. Recently, however, many database products have added significant improvements that make possible what was previously impossible. These improvements not only enhance performance and reduce costs, but also enable the handling of new types of data and applications.

At the same time, new non-relational products have been introduced that support workloads not always suited to a relational architecture. The net result is that database systems are no longer a commodity, and choosing the right system for your projects is critical to business success. This Webinar looks at recent developments in the database field and offers advice on how to choose the right product for your business.

  • A short history of database systems
  • Recent developments and how they disrupt both IT and the business
  • Making possible what was not possible before
  • Choosing the right database technologies and products for your business
  • Where next?
