2018 Trends for Database and Data Management – Six Months Later (Trend 1)

By | Database Technology Trends
Enterprise database platforms are expected to expand beyond traditional relational database models to include non-relational alternative models   Read about Trend 2 Six months in, it seems quaint now to say that the world of non-relational data has exploded. Customers now expect general purpose database platforms will support a whole new level of workloads and functions. This is driven in part by the emergence of the non-relational technologies of NoSQL and Hadoop and the creative force to extract new value from data. The new standard is the ability to use multiple data types, video, graph and spatial capabilities, in addition to data virtualization and data virtualization support. Real time data analysis is now the norm and no longer the exception. Six months in, is it safe to say we are at the acceptance level of this trend but implementation and vision remains another matter?  Want to find out more about how your company can leverage the power of non-relational data and your database platform?   Join Dobler Consulting and Anthony Antonello, VP, SAP HANA Global Center of Excellence, for a Live Webinar June 19th, 2018 @ 2:00 PM EDT for: SAP Sybase Roadmap 2018 View Video Replay and Download Presentation (more…)

What’s the Deal with Oracle 18c? (part 1)

By | Oracle
Oracle’s newest release, 18c, is out, and I know what you’re thinking: what happened to 12.2.0.2?  Is it really time for a whole new version?  Well rest assured, this is not really a whole new version. It’s an entirely new method of naming that more accurately reflects what has been going on for years.  The old model of multiple release versions and patch sets wasn’t doing justice to the database.  The multiple release model led many to shy away from adopting any first release database for go-live workloads.  But honestly, for years the patch sets have been full releases in all but name. So now Oracle has decided to change its release schedule, and each annual release will be named after the last two digits of the year.  The plan is to speed the release of smaller changes while avoiding the massive overhauls that used to come with first releases.  What would have been database 12.2.0.2 is now 18c, and 12.2.0.3 will instead be 19.
