Oracle launches 11g software in India

Global database software major Oracle on Tuesday launched its latest software ‘11g’ in India which would be implemented by partners including HCL Technologies, Infosys, Satyam, TCS and Wipro at the customer-end.
Database 11g is a software product providing security of data to customers besides helping in data warehousing and content management applications.

“Financial services, communications and government organisations which have to surmount a large number of security and compliance issues, will benefit from this database software,” Oracle India Vice-President Technology Sales SPS Grover told.

Oracle said 11g would enable the partners and customers improve productivity, increase revenues and manage costs.

The software was launched globally in August this year and claims to have 400 features and is available on Linux operating systems.

The Indian launch happened after Oracle’s local partners were enabled to implement this latest version of the software.

Over 80 per cent of our business in India is managed through partners. Enabling our partners to implement the latest version of database was key for adoption of 11g in the country, he said.

“India and China are expected to see a database revolution in the near future expecting the countries to handle their data growth efficiently,” said Oracle Director Technology Sales Consulting Seema Ambastha.
