Database articles have always filled the pages of Oracle Magazine, but how we look at new database releases has changed in the last couple of years. Cloud and autonomous have been the focus of recent Oracle Database articles, and rightly so. In this issue, however, we’re reminding readers that there’s much more to learn in every release, particularly as it pertains to the future of their business.
In our “Database Innovation” cover feature, Oracle Content Central Editor-at-Large Jeff Erickson describes the top new features of the latest release, Oracle Database 19c. Among them: automatic indexing, which improves database performance by making sure queries use the best and most up-to-date indexes; Active Data Guard DML Redirect, which makes your standby database more active and a better value for your business; Hybrid Partitioned Tables, a feature that enables partitions to reside in Oracle Database segments as well as in external files; partial updates for JSON documents in the database; and updated Simple Oracle Document Access (SODA) APIs.
Emails and posts received by Oracle Magazine and its staff may be edited for length and clarity and may be published in any medium. We consider any communications we receive publishable.
