Exadata for OLTP applications
By Javier Puerta on Jun 02, 2011
The May/June issue of Oracle Magazine features the article "Bring Business Online", by David Baum, on how organizations are adopting Oracle Exadata for enterprise online transaction (OLTP) processing applications.
It describes in detail the cases of Sogeti US and of AFG (Australian Finance Group). Sogeti today uses an Exadata platform to store and process all the data for Sogeti’s Oracle E-Business Suite applications, including financials, human resources, project resource management, and project accounting applications. AFG's Oracle Exadata platform hosts multiple OLTP applications, including Siebel Incentive Compensation Management to calculate commissions and Oracle Financials to make payments.
