"Project Sayonara" Plots A SalesForce Move Away From Oracle Database

May 30, 2016

According To Fortune, SalesForce is plotting to end its dependency on the pricey Oracle database, likely moving to an open-source solution. Of course, it would take years in order to make a safe and reliable transition.


"Sources close to the Salesforce say that Pat Helland, a former top Microsoft software architect who worked on Microsoft SQL Server database software and its Bing search engine, is now driving Salesforce's effort to wean itself from Oracle. Helland's effort, code-named "Project Sayonara," may be the source of reports over the past few years that Salesforce was considering switching from Oracle to the PostgreSQL, an open-source and less expensive database."

Pat Helland is the Software Architect at SalesForce and according to LinkedIn has over 32 years experience in the field. SalesForce recently chose to launch its new Internet Of Things (IoT) on Amazons AWS cloud, signaling that SalesForce is open to dramatic technology changes.
