Asia Pacific Customers and Partners Prepare for Release of Oracle(r) Database 11g
Added On:8/1/2007 1:59:44 AM
Hundreds of organizations in Asia Pacific have tested or participated in previews of the latest release of the world's most popular database, Oracle Database 11g. With more than 400 features, 15 million test hours, and 36,000 person-months of development, Oracle Database 11g is the most innovative and highest quality software product Oracle has ever announced.
"Although organizations want to drive competitive advantage through innovation, inflexible IT systems have made it difficult to implement changes," said Roger Scott, vice president, Technology Sales Consulting, Oracle Asia Pacific. "Oracle Database 11g is designed to help customers innovate faster by reducing time, risk and cost of change; and ultimately get more value from their enterprise information."
Enterprise Management Associates Senior Analyst Andi Mann added, "IT organizations are constantly dealing with changes - hardware changes, OS changes, software patches and upgrades. Implementing those changes to a production environment is a non-trivial undertaking. Oracle Database 11g's Real Application Testing is a major step forward in helping enterprises cope with changes to IT environments."
Oracle continues to lead the standard for data-intensive software solutions. IDC recently reported that Oracle extended its database leadership by capturing 49% of the APAC(1) relational database management systems (RDBMS) market in 2006(2), more than double the market share of its nearest competitor. According to the same report, Oracle also grew its RDBMS software revenue(3) by 15.6% year-on-year, faster than the market average.
Oracle Database 11g Helps Customers Innovate Faster Customers from a wide range of industries across the globe have successfully completed the Oracle Database 11g beta program. The beta program participants evaluated the full spectrum of Oracle Database 11g features, including manageability, performance and scalability, high availability, and security.
"Undertaking system changes such as hardware/software upgrades and the application of patches to our mission critical systems is always a challenge," said Eric Lee, head of IT & Data Centre Operations, Hutchison Telecommunications HK Ltd. "The Real Application Testing feature of Oracle Database 11g is a valuable tool for reducing the operational risk associated with these changes. Being able to effectively test system changes in test environments by replaying a full production workload is a major step forward in determining the overall impact of the changes. Likewise, the ability to do fine-grain SQL response time assessment and fix any regressions due to the change is a significant contribution to smoother change management."
"With Oracle Database 11g, we can control our costs better, make changes more easily, and be better assured that our changes are going to be okay," Environment Waikato Database Administrator Erica Harris said.
"We found the scalability could accommodate a very ambitious image management project with compression technology designed to ensure the storage costs of the project do not escalate out of control," said Naomi Rafael, senior database administrator, Melbourne Health. "Furthermore, the security and compliance elements of Oracle Database 11g ensure only the right personnel can access sensitive data."
Partners Leverage Oracle Database 11g to Expand Their Businesses Partners in Asia Pacific who participated in the Oracle Database 11g beta program are touting manageability and change assurance, grid consolidation, Oracle Real Application Testing and information life cycle management as key features that will help customers innovate at a rapid pace.
