East Brunswick, NJ, March 1, 2016
OpenSCG, a leading provider of subscriptions and services for PostgreSQL, announced today that Affan Salman has joined its team of top-tier PostgreSQL talent as Senior Database Architect. Affan is the primary original author of EnterpriseDB’s Oracle compatibility from 10 years ago and has spent much of the last six years rounding out his database internals credentials by becoming a Cassandra, Spark & Hadoop rock star.
“We are very excited that Affan has re-joined the family,” said Denis Lussier, CEO of OpenSCG. “Affan put EnterpriseDB on the map for Oracle compatibility back in the day. Having him as a key part of the OpenSCG team will enable us to move faster, and further enhance our strategic plans for the future.” As part of his new responsibilities, Salman is expected to contribute to BigSQL, a new PostgreSQL Distribution that OpenSCG is sponsoring.
“I was thrilled to join the OpenSCG/BigSQL team,” said Salman. “I have worked with the management team for over a decade, and was looking for a balance between new product development and working closely with customers on data-driven business problems. My new role offers the chance to do both.”
