Ingres NeXt is Actian’s attempt at a comprehensive and flexible strategy to enable digital transformation through database and application modernisation (and particularly via cloud migration). It aims to stand as an alternative to more conventional approaches to digital transformation, achieved primarily through the use of automated migration utilities, asset reuse, and a high degree of flexibility and customisation, among other things. This results in a solution that can coexist with your existing system, replacing it piece by piece as you deem necessary and at your own pace, that exists to support your unique path to a modern data infrastructure.
The purpose of this report is to discuss the approach Actian have taken with Ingres NeXt, to highlight the advantages afforded by it, and to encourage you to consider these issues – and how to address them – when planning your own digital transformation efforts.
