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.
