When we published our 2008 report on the impact of open source on the database market the overall conclusion was that adoption had been widespread but shallow.
Since then we’ve seen increased adoption of open source software, as well as the acquisition of MySQL by Oracle. Perhaps the most significant shift in the market since early 2008 has been the explosion in the number of open source database and data management projects, including the various NoSQL data stores, and of course Hadoop and its associated projects.
On Tuesday, November 9, 2010 at 11:00 am EST I’ll be joining Robin Schumacher, Director of Product Strategy from EnterpriseDB to present a webinar on navigating the changing landscape of open source databases.
Among the topics to be discussed are:
· the needs of organizations with hybrid mixed-workload environments
· how to choose the right tool for the job
· the involvement of user corporations (for better or for worse) in open source projects today.
