News Facts

Oracle today announced that it has been named the leading embedded database management systems (DBMS) vendor for the third consecutive year based on 2009 embedded DBMS software revenues by leading market research firm IDC, in its report, “Worldwide Embedded DBMS 2010-2014 Forecast and 2009 Vendor Shares.”
IDC defines embedded DBMSs as those sold to Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) or hardware device partners to be used as components within larger software or hardware products developed by the partner.
IDC also notes that embedded DBMSs vary widely based on the applications they support. For example, some applications require a small footprint; others focus on speed or scalability, and some require broad support for many data types.
Oracle OpenWorld 2010 includes many sessions and activities for embedded developers.
