Today’s successful businesses utilize data better than their competitors; however, data sprawl and inefficient data infrastructure restrict what’s possible. Blending the best of the past with the software innovations of today will solve future data challenges. Drew Paroski shares how to develop modern database applications without sacrificing cost savings, data familiarity, and flexibility.

This keynote is sponsored by MemSQL.
