“We are thrilled to participate in M|18 again to share our journey with MariaDB and hear from other industry leaders on their own paths to open source. When we began our open source transformation, we were aiming to break down the silos within our organization, become more nimble, and simplify processes to bring more value to our customers,” said Joan Tay Kim Choo, Executive Director of Technology, DBS Bank. “MariaDB was a vital part of this transformation, helping us replace our legacy database systems, solve organizational and technological challenges, and innovate in new ways.”
“Last year at this time, we were just completing our migration to MariaDB, making M|17 the perfect forum for us to dive deeper into our new solution. The rich technical presentations helped us get a sense of how well we understood the technology, and most importantly, where we could immediately increase its value,” said Greg Henderson, Senior Manager and Global Business Systems Architect at Ansell Healthcare. “We’re excited to be back again this year to share our own MariaDB story. This is truly a community gathering and we hope our experience can provide valuable insight to other companies in the process of migrating to MariaDB.”
