Matthew O'Keefe - Oracle Corporation

Limited function databases lead developers to write a lot more code and make IT infrastructure overly complex, brittle, and fragile. As businesses reach for digital transformation, they are finding that integrating all the critical functionality they need — IoT, machine learning, blockchain, and more — via traditional methods isn’t working. What they need is a database that provides seamless convergence and integration of data models, availability, security, performance, and fresh new technologies that can transform the business. In this talk, Dr. O'Keefe will introduce the concept behind such “data-driven applications” and hopefully open up a conversation about how you can help make them possible at your employer.
