Oracle Monday plans to demonstrate new enterprise management features of its next-generation database.
At the IOUG Live 2003 conference here, the company will show how the upcoming database will make it "even easier to manage databases and make our Enterprise Manager tool more powerful to manage across whole collections of databases," said Andy Mendelsohn, senior vice president of database products at Oracle. IOUG Live 2003 is sponsored by the International Oracle Users Group.
News of Oracle's enterprise manageability focus comes just days after Microsoft announced the availability of a 64-bit version of Microsoft SQL Server 2000.
