Five Minute Briefing - May 6, 2015
Accenture and Oracle have launched a new business group to jointly deliver industry-specific solutions built on the Oracle Cloud, helping clients realize the benefits of the cloud faster and with reduced risk. The new group will bring solutions to market across a range of industries, with an initial focus on the public, financial and hospitality services sectors.
Oracle has announced that Oracle SQL Developer version 4.1, Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler 4.1, and Oracle REST Data Services version 3.0 are now generally available. A common theme across all three new releases is an emphasis on making developers lives easier, said Kris Rice, senior director of database tools, Oracle. "Everything revolves around the data."
Oracle has introduced Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD) Release 5.2, the latest version of the company's secure remote access solution for cloud-hosted enterprise applications and hosted desktops running on not only Microsoft Windows, but also Linux, Solaris and mainframe servers. SGD allows users to work securely from any device and from any location, while providing administrators controlled access to applications and desktop environments resident in the data center, providing a key benefit to large companies in a BYOD world.
THINK ABOUT IT
When databases are built from a well-designed data model, the resulting structures provide increased value to the organization. The value derived from the data model exhibits itself in the form of minimized redundancy, maximized data integrity, increased stability, better data sharing, increased consistency, more timely access to data, and better usability.
