Do you feel like you're sitting on the sideline with your large (and extremely expensive) relational database systems and first-generation (and extremely expensive) analytical database systems, complaining about license fees and worrying that the path out is too treacherous to attempt?  Good news!  It's time for enterprises to join the wave of startups and smaller organizations in their adoption of newer/better/cheaper database systems. In this webinar, you'll hear about examples of ways that larger organizations can streamline their database efforts and tell Oracle to hit the road.

Takeaways:

  • You will understand the current database landscape much better than you do today.
  • You will know when to pick which distributed database.
  • You will learn the many ways that Hadoop rocks.
