News Flashes

Oracle has launched three new cloud services accelerators for enterprise project portfolio management (EPPM) in the financial services, public sector, and engineering and construction industries. The purpose-built accelerators are aimed at enabling organizations to address the challenges associated with managing project, program, portfolio, and contract lifecycles in their respective industries.

ScaleArc, a provider of database load balancing software, has announced support for automatic cache invalidation, providing a transparent ACID-compliant caching mechanism for dynamic data. The ScaleArc software tracks data changes to invalidate a cache entry, ensuring that outdated data is not served for Oracle and MySQL, as well as SQL Server database environments.
