OptimaData Silversponsor of PG Conf EU 2019 Milan
The annual PG Conf EU event will take place from 15th to 18th October 2019, this time in Milan. OptimaData is sponsoring this, the largest PostgreSQL conference on the European mainland, for the third time in a row.
PostgreSQL has been the fastest growing open source database platform year after year. With an active global community, Postgres is a serious alternative to the established order such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server.
This is an important platform for OptimaData as an open source database consultancy and managed services service provider. "Because we find it important that PostgreSQL becomes stronger across the board as a platform, but also as a community, we would like to support this event," said Gerard Zuidweg, Managing Partner at OptimaData. Research has shown that more than 60% of CIOs in the Netherlands are actively looking to save on (Oracle) licensing costs. "PostgreSQL can be a good and reliable alternative for this. There is a growing need for knowledge and know-how in the Netherlands and Europe regarding this platform. Partly based on this idea, we organize a meetup in collaboration with the PostgreSQL Usergroup NL 4 times a year". The 10th edition of this meetup will take place in June 2019. "The PG Conf EU is a must for every open source interested DBA or developer," says Martijn Wallet, Manager Consultancy at OptimaData and PostgreSQL Expert. "The conference gives you the opportunity to share knowledge and exchange experiences with experts from the community and other Postgres colleagues". Gerard Zuidweg: "For OptimaData as an organization, the conference gives us an opportunity to network, increase our visibility in the community and take back valuable input for our customers."
