PostgreSQL DBMS of the year 2023

PostgreSQL DBMS of the year 2023 has named PostgreSQL as DBMS of the year 2023. PostgreSQL is the database management system that gained more popularity in the DB-Engines Ranking last year than any of the other 417 verified systems.

PostgreSQL is DBMS of the Year for the fourth time, having already won three titles between 2017 and 2020. Nearly 35 years ago, Postgres was first released. A lot has changed since then, and that is actually PostgreSQL's great success factor: a high rate of steady improvements that keep it at the forefront of DBMS technology while providing a reliable and stable platform. In PostgreSQL 16, released in September 2023, further performance improvements and more replication options, among other things, were made. All this makes PostgreSQL one of the most successful open source projects ever.

OptimaData FD Gazelle 2023

OptimaData FD Gazelle 2023

Thanks to the efforts of the entire team and the trust of our customers, OptimaData can call itself FD Gazelle for the 4th year in a row!

Of course we are proud and happy about that (again). The previous Gazelles (2020, 2021 and 2022) were already beautiful and a crown on our work. But this one in 2023 surely has a golden edge. Some years take energy in a certain way, a bit of a wringer, not everything comes naturally. And this one certainly didn't come our way. A lot of things happened that influenced it. And just is extra beautiful to receive this Gazelle in recognition of everyone's efforts within the team.

Grateful to all our people, including our freelancers and interim staff, our clients, partners and suppliers for their commitment, trust and cooperation.

For us yet another confirmation that our motto: "You are not a team if you work together, you are only a team if you care about each other", brings a stimulating culture from which growth is ultimately a result.
