...Oracle 11g PL/SQL New Features PL/SQL "continue" keyword - This will allow a "C-Like" continue in a loop, skipping an iteration to bypass any "else" Boolean conditions. A nasty PL/SQL GOTO statement is no longer required to exit a Boolean within a loop. Oracle professional Jurgen Kemmelings has an excellent PL/SQL example of the PL/SQL continue clause in-action: begin for i in 1..3 loop dbms_output.put_line(’i=’||to_char(i)); if ( i = 2 ) then continue; end if; dbms_output.put_line(’Only if i is not equal to 2′); end loop; end; Disabled state for PL/SQL - Another 11g new feature is a "disabled" state for PL/SQL (as opposed to "enabled" and "invalid" in dba_objects). Easy PL/SQL compiling - Native Compilation no longer requires a C compiler to compile your PL/SQL. Your code goes directly to a shared library. Source: Lewis Cunningham Improved PL/SQL stored procedure invalidation mechanism - A new 11g features will be fine grained dependency tracking, reducing the number of objects which become invalid as a result of DDL. Scalable PL/SQL - The next scalable execution feature is automatic creation of "native" PL/SQL (and Java code), with just one parameter for each type with an "on/off" value. This apparently provides a 100% performance boost for pure PL/SQL code, and a 10%-30% performance boost for code containing SQL.

...Dell Inc: Changing the Business Model (Mini Case) Synopsis: In 1984 Dell Inc. was founded by University of Texas freshmen, Michael Dell. Dell would buy computers from the excess inventory of local retailers and revamp them to sell out of his trunk. Dell was able to sell his computers at 10%-15% below retail price. After Dell’s freshmen year he dropped out to run his business full time. By 1995 Dell had sales of nearly $3.5 billion and was one of the top five PC vendors in the world. Dell focused on customer support and service and became the master of process engineering and supply chain management. Dell has faced many challenges including distribution through US retail stores, management changes, and keeping up with its competitors. Since consumers aren’t willing to pay huge amounts of money for computers unless they were unique, Dell is at a crossroads. Which road Dell chooses to follow will determine its future. Resources: Dell Inc.’s most valuable resource has been Michael Dell and its ability to sell computers at 10-15% below market value. Another huge resource is the executive team that Dell formed for guidance. Capabilities: Dell’s capability at producing products at a lower cost to its consumers is key. By adding services such as laptops, software/peripherals, servers/networking, services, and storage Dell expanded its capabilities. With the added services Dell can keep pace with its competitors.

Oracle

...The History of Oracle | Founded in August 1977 by Larry Ellison, Bob Miner, Ed Oates and Bruce Scott, Oracle was initially named after "Project Oracle" a project for one of their clients, the C.I.A, and the company that developed Oracle was dubbed "Systems Development Labs", or SDL.   Although they may not have realized it at the time, these four men would change the history of database management forever. In 1978 SDL was renamed Relational Software Inc (RSI) to market their new database.  1979 - Oracle release 2 The first commercial RDBMS was built using PDP-11 assembler language. Although they created a commercial version of RDBMS in 1977, it wasn't available for sale until 1979 with the launch of Oracle version 2. The company decided against starting with version 1 because they were afraid that the term "version 1" might be viewed negatively in the marketplace.  USA Air Force and then CIA were the first customers to use Oracle 2. In 1982 there was another change of the company’s name, from RSI to Oracle Systems Corporation so as to match its popular database name.  The current company name comes from a CIA project that Larry Ellison had previously worked on code named Oracle. 1983 - Oracle release 3 The Oracle version 3 was developed in 1983. This version was assembled using C programming language and could run in mainframes, minicomputers, and PCs or any hardware with a C compiler. It supported the execution of SQL statements and transactions. This version also...

...Israel Garcia Professor Neil Librock Finance 3300 21 October 2014 Oracle Corporation Most widely known for their Java software, the #1 development platform, Oracle is the so called leader in database software. Their business expands, however, from software to hardware with products such as storage equipment, servers, operating systems, virtualization software, middleware, and many more. It was founded in 1977 and today it is headquartered in our very own Golden state in Redwood City. We look first at measures of financial leverage, which is important because debt can increase or decrease returns to shareholders. Financial leverage is usually measured by the ratio of long-term debt to total long-term capital. Oracles long-term debt ratio for 2014 is 33%, an increase from 29% in 2013. This number tells us that for every dollar in the form of long-term capital, 33 cents is in the form of debt. This measure, however, ignores Oracle’s short-term debt. To take short-term debt into account we measure its total debt ratio, in this case Oracle’s total debt ratio is 47%. Ultimately, these numbers tell us that Oracle is financed 47% with long-term and short-term debt and 53% with equity. We want equity here to be higher than debt since the less money the company borrows, the less interest it pays. Next, we take a look at Oracle’s liquidity ratios. Liquid assets can be converted into cash quickly, which is why it is important to measure to see how quickly a company can bring...

Oracle

...Oracle Systems Corporation is a database management software company that found success in the 1980’s from being an innovator in multiplatform software development. Oracle’s business strategy focused on building its technical expertise and customer service to provide performance standards that could not be matched by competitors. Oracle adopted a first mover competitive advantage when it was the first company to deliver multiple-interface software along with a range of accounting applications - all at record-setting speeds. An incentive-driven sales force was established in order to market to large corporations that would benefit the most from its software. In return, Oracle saw growth rates as sales increased by nearly 700 million dollars from 1988 to 1990. Oracle’s key successes and risk factors can both be traced to their marketing and R&D costs, as well as expanding licensing agreements with hardware manufacturers and value-added resellers (VARs). The first mover advantage that Oracle established with its software allowed the company to venture into a wide arrange of services such as maintenance, consulting, and systems integration before its competitors. These services created a company that could specialize in both product quality and customer service. This instant expansion also came with its own set of problems. Customer satisfaction dropped due to an inability of the sales force to adapt to new territories and new software was being criticized for a number...
