The Cuba proposal

===================================
Abstract— Cuba is betting on business efficiency as a vital weapon to
tackle the current worldwide economic crisis. Today the work on
enterprises or entities is not conceived without the informatics
applications that help in processes, resources, products management and
decisions-making, increasing performance and efficiency; applications that
are supported, generally, by a database. Currently the brakes on growth in
the use of open source databases management for handling them, is the lack
of knowledge by Cuban specialists in handling these types of technologies.
The Cuban university, as being essential to the development of society,
should develop strategies to support the migration to open source software
and with it, the gradual use of technologies that generate no charges for
the use of proprietary technologies and to achieve the country
technological sovereignty. This article presents, in line with this
necessity, the results of the first edition of the diploma in PostgreSQL
databases technologies, tool for the training of specialists in the
correct use of databases technologies and solutions related to this
manager, and the immediate projections to it perfect accord to the country
needed.

This is ready
