Fireside Chat - Break Free from Oracle and Move to the Cloud
Companies of all sizes are frustrated with Oracle’s legacy technology, high costs, and complex licensing contracts. These companies are looking for the freedom to adopt modern open source based cloud solutions while reducing current Oracle costs and compliance risks.

Join Franz Aman, CMO from MariaDB Corporation, and Craig Guarente, CEO of Palisade Compliance, as they discuss what’s driving this move away from Oracle, how companies are redirecting the massive spend just on Oracle into their overall digital transformation, and what you can do right now to reduce your reliance on Oracle. This will be an interactive session with live Q&A and very few PowerPoint slides!
