Need a good reason to upgrade to Oracle Database? I'll give you seventy five!

A few times a year, I'm asked to update the Oracle Database Reference Booklet. Each time, the number of customers benefiting from upgrading to the Oracle Database grows. Read for yourself how an airline cut analysis time for travel partner bookings from 10 hours to 10 minutes, helping staff develop better informed partner sales and marketing strategies. Or how a bank completed their database upgrade without disruption to their day-to-day operations and minimized system downtime for more than 2 million customers, who expect around the clock services. Or how a manufacturing company saved an expected US$609,000 on storage hardware costs. These are just of few of the customer who improved performance, provided better service for their customers and saved money with the Oracle Database.

Need a good reason to upgrade to the Oracle Database? Look no further.

New Podcast: Reasons Developers and DBAs Should Attend ODTUG's KScope13

Recently, I had the pleasure to interview two ODTUG (Oracle Development Tools User Group) members:

During this podcast (listen), they explain why KScope13 is a fantastic conference for both developers and DBAs alike. This year, it's happening June 23 - 27 in New Orleans, LA.
