Oracle is making significant engineering investments to ensure that Oracle systems coupled with Oracle software deliver the best possible business results. Integrated hardware, accelerated virtualization, and encryption ensure that cloud deployments benefit from the utmost agility and security without suffering performance losses.
It’s never been easier to upgrade your legacy systems and take advantage of Oracle's cutting-edge infrastructure systems. Advanced data security, extreme efficiency with Software in Silicon and dramatic gains in performance make Oracle systems the best choice for your Oracle software deployments.
Oracle has just announced a new microprocessor, and the servers and engineered system that are powered by it. The SPARC M8 processor fits in the palm of your hand, but it contains the result of years of co-engineering of hardware and software together to run enterprise applications with unprecedented speed and security.
The SPARC M8 chip contains 32 of today’s most powerful cores for running Oracle Database and Java applications. Benchmarking data shows that the performance of these cores reaches twice the performance of Intel’s x86 cores. This is the result of exhaustive work on designing smart execution units and threading architecture, and on balancing metrics such as core count, memory and IO bandwidth. It also required millions of hours in testing chip design and operating system software on real workloads for database and Java. Having faster cores means increasing application capability while keeping the core count and software investment under control. In other words, a boost
Your enterprise runs its critical
applications on Oracle Databases,
and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining
the performance and availability of your
databases is among your top priorities.
Any degradation in performance
or loss of data could result in serious
business disruption and loss of revenue,
so protecting this vital asset is a must.
There are many causes of data loss—
administration errors, system or media
failures, cyberattacks, and more—but
we often overlook design flaws in the
very systems meant to protect data:
general-purpose backup systems.
Many existing data protection solutions fail to
meet the demands of critical databases because
they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed
to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach
to database backup and recovery not only exposes
you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts
performance and makes it difficult to recover within
Traditional backup systems fail to meet the needs of
modern organizations by focusing on backup, not
recovery. They treat databases as generic files to be
copied, rather than as transactional workloads with
specific data integrity, consistency, performance, and
Additionally, highly regulated industries, such as financial
services, are subject to ever?increasing regulatory
mandates that require stringent protection against data
breaches, data loss, malware, ransomware, and other
risks. These risks require fiduciary?class data recovery
to eliminate data loss exposure and ensure data integrity

Accountants typically spend a great deal of time in the compilation of ?nancial statements for compliance purposes and for
measuring the historical performance of a company. However, all of the data in the balance sheet and income statement is
generated from historical information in the accounting system.
To be useful in helping to improve the ?nancial performance of a company, the raw ?nancial data needs to be distilled into
useful information so that it can be used in making strategic decisions.
The complexity and high level of integration inherent in SAP environments can make development especially challenging and increase the time required to bring solutions to market. Persistent development and test challenges include unavailable systems, inability to accurately model performance and complex test data requirements. By employing service virtualization to model the core business logic in SAP systems and integrations, teams can free themselves of these constraints, leading to faster build and test cycles, better quality and lower cost.
Midsize Aerospace and Aviation manufacturers need to choose a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help. It drives better product development performance by managing product-related data, processes and projects. While smaller companies may be able to control, access and share product data with relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger manufacturers rely on full featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global Aerospace and Aviation companies.
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector Model 4000 (Hardware model 4100) v3.8 SP5 and OfficeScan (OSCE) v12.0.1807. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Breach Detection Systems (BDS) Test Methodology v4.0 available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Trend Micro’s participation.
While the companion Comparative Reports on security, performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO) will provide information about all tested products, this Test Report provides detailed information not available elsewhere.

Mobile Workforce Management solutions enable companies to deliver superior field service and customer satisfaction (see Part I, Setting The Stage For Best Practices Service Performance). However, a successful Mobile Workforce Management transformation is dependent upon many factors beyond simply deploying new technology. It requires a full understanding of the overall business objectives, a keen understanding of historical processes, a standard system of key performance metrics along with the organization’s current performance in those metrics, and effective communication to ensure organizational readiness and project execution.

Most businesses today are under increasing pressure to respond to change expeditiously—to adapt to the ongoing needs and demands of their customers, the changing competitive landscape, and the evolution of the marketplace. An organization’s CRM system can either effectively support or hinder their business agility and capacity to respond to change, affecting overall corporate performance and customer satisfaction.
Increasing power demands and space limitations in the data center have begun to transition server virtualization technologies from luxuries to necessities. Server virtualization provides a path toward server consolidation that results in significant power and space savings, while also offering high availability and system portability. Today, vendors are building hardware and software platforms that can deliver virtualization solutions at near-native performance.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.
