The restrictions and drawbacks of legacy proprietary databases like Oracle have never been clearer—especially in contrast to the freedom and innovation offered by Postgres. As a result, more and more organizations are saying goodbye to Oracle and migrating to greener Postgres pastures—both enterprise and open source. Consistently, those who make this change find themselves with more flexibility, better control of their data and an enhanced ability to modernize. In this eBook, you’ll learn about the experience of three such businesses: a remote telemetry leader that reduced licensing costs and accelerated customer experiences a telecommunications business support provider that harnessed Postgres for agile and cost-efficient application modernization an automotive repair juggernaut who underwent a major transformation project without the fear of vendor lock-in or excessive downtime How can Oracle migration empower you? Let’s find out.


This white paper focuses on the most popular source and target for database migrations: moving from Oracle to Postgres. Oracle is the #1 legacy database, and its extremely onerous license policies are driving the majority of migration demand. Postgres is the logical target for the migrations. With a constant stream of innovations reflected in annual releases, Postgres has achieved three major database of the year awards from DBengines.com, recognition as the #1 database in StackOverflow’s annual developer survey, and the position of #1 database on the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s tech radar. Not only is it clear that Postgres is winning the hearts and minds of innovation drivers, but its small footprint makes it an ideal solution in containers too (see Datadog survey). The principles and approaches described in this paper are applicable to other source/target combinations as well. You’ll find: A quick review of the business drivers and migration approaches; A dive in

The Forrester Wave™: for Streaming Data Platforms, Q4 2023 is a key source of information for any organization looking to deploy real-time applications that deliver instant action on streaming data. In this report, you get a comprehensive view of the most significant streaming data platforms in the market today and their respective strengths. In this report, Forrester evaluated 14 vendors and reviewed them against 21 different criteria related to a company’s current offering, strategy, and market presence. Hazelcast was evaluated as a Strong Performer in this report and received the top scores possible in the following criteria: Throughput Enrichment Latency Vision Innovation Roadmap Why the Wave Matters Streaming data is becoming a priority for enterprises with real-time aspirations and the goal to use it as a competitive advantage. It’s not only a snapshot of what is happening across the business, streaming data opens new possibilities for real-time applications tha


Many businesses are already taking advantage of real-time data. But the challenge today is that they are predominantly focusing on faster access to stored data, and thus not on taking faster action when data is created, and when opportunities arise. Many “streaming” technologies today must first store data and then rely on humans to gain insights via manual analysis and then respond in human time. A complementary approach that leverages stream processing engines will address business problems that need immediate, automated responses. This paper covers: Leveraging stream processing technologies to respond in real-time for use cases like “right offer at the right time” (i.e., real-time offers) and transaction fraud detection. Using real-time data to drive better business outcomes via recommendations or reduced loss from fraud. How to better identify the real-time use cases that you can deploy to gain competitive advantage. Register now to get your digital copy of this free ebo


Instead of a feature-by-feature comparison between these two popular technologies, there is a more meaningful way to determine which is right for you. After all, comparing Hazelcast to Redis is almost like comparing a sports utility vehicle (SUV) to a pickup truck. Picking one of these vehicles over the other depends on how you plan on using them. It’s the same with Hazelcast versus Redis. The main difference between Hazelcast and Redis is that as a unified real-time data platform, Hazelcast provides stream processing capabilities that you don’t get in Redis. So if you are looking to take instant action on real-time data, in which your applications help you respond to changes in data when it matters most, Hazelcast is your technology. Read this paper to learn how Hazelcast covers all your bases for your stream processing needs, and hopefully, you won’t need to spend so much time figuring out how to differentiate Hazelcast from Redis or any other storage-only data platforms.
