News Flashes

Oracle has announced an updated version of Oracle GoldenGate 12c. With GoldenGate 12c, customers can implement real-time data integration and transactional data replication between on-premises and cloud environments and across a broader set of heterogeneous platforms, achieving faster time to value and a greater return from their data assets. "Inherent in the concept of integration is that we can effectively cover both like and unlike platforms, and that we offer our customers the ability to effectively capture and move their data regardless of which systems, platforms, and vendors their data originates from," said Jeff Pollock, vice president of product management at Oracle.

Oracle has introduced a new release of its developer tool suite, Solaris Studio, with enhanced analysis tools and support for the latest programming language standards. "Oracle Solaris Studio engineers work closely with the Oracle Solaris and SPARC design teams to ensure the compilers generate the best possible code for Oracle servers," said Don Kretsch, senior director, Software Development, Oracle.

Oracle and SAP are ending their legal battle through a settlement in which SAP will pay Oracle $359 million. The SAP-Oracle conflict began early in 2007 when Oracle sued SAP claiming that SAP stole Oracle's trade secrets.
