  • Abstract
    • 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 pimp their toolkits.

  • Legacy Database Budget Blockade
    • Keeping the Engine Running
      • Locked into premium-priced legacy contracts for the right to upgrade the database
      • Old projects, versus new, receive a majority of funding
      • New database functionality is rare & is at the mercy of the legacy database vendor
    Average Annual IT Budget Spend 75-80% = Maintenance
