Session

Databases Don't Matter

Emma McGrattan, SVP Engineering, Ingres Corporation

Track: Products and Services
Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: E142

In today’s high speed IT environments, application developers are less concerned about database functionality than they are about meeting aggressive deadlines and delivering functionality to meet the immediate demands of the business. Enterprise suitability is often times an afterthought and scalability and robustness take a back seat to instant gratification. This interactive session explores these competing priorities, debunks a few myths, and arms app developers with the gadgets and resources needed to truly pimp their toolkits.
