About the Webinar

The path to creating a single view of your customers or your transactional systems is overflowing with high costs and complexity. Major vendors have built massive, million-dollar systems that are too expensive and too complicated for most. NoSQL-only solutions seem to have promise, but simply do not necessarily have what you need. Learn what Postgres can do for you that NoSQL-only solutions can’t.

Using a NoSQL-only solution and dumping gigabytes of data from multiple disparate systems into gigantic documents is complicated. And it forces tough choices—group all data by customer, by transaction, or by policy? You must choose, and this can be a hard process for some organizations. And almost always, organizations later learn they need relationships among the data, which NoSQL-only solutions cannot support.

Postgres eliminates the complexity and the pain of creating a single view of the customer. With recent advances, Postgres can support semi-structured, unstructured and structured data in the same environment, employing relational qualities and ACID compliance.
