Why should you attend Distributed SQL Summit?

As interest in geo-distributed variants of SQL continues to accelerate, enterprises are turning to distributed databases to gain the scaling capabilities of NoSQL, combined with strong consistency, ACID transactions and support for the SQL syntax traditionally provided by monolithic systems like Oracle. Expert speakers at the Summit will dive deep into the use cases, best practices and next steps for successfully implementing distributed SQL as a key part of an enterprise cloud and Oracle migration strategy.
