Oracle's Built-In Location-based Capabilities Help Drive Competitors to Adopt Similar Data Management Strategies

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Apr. 10, 2003 - (http://www.oracle.com/tellmemore/?1694806) Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL), the world's largest enterprise software company, today announced that analyst firm International Data Corporation (IDC) has determined Oracle is the world's leader in what's predicted to be the rapidly growing geospatial database managment market. The report predicts that basic spatial information management capabilities - such as those already provided by Oracle - will be ubiquitous in database, application server, and data access technology within two to three years, and praised Oracle's innovative move to build Spatial Information Management (SIM) capabilities directly into the relational database. IDC based its findings on analysis of vendor financial statements, census interviews, public information and demand-side research.

According to IDC's recent report titled, "Spatial Information Management: Competitive Analysis, 2002," Oracle holds 80-90 percent market share for SIM-oriented database installations.
