GepCom's engineering staff have been instrumental in the
development and installation of hundreds of Oracle database
applications. Our applications have been used for manufacturing
data and control systems, newspaper production and distribution,
inventory control and business decision analysis. When performance
and dependability are crucial factors in your database project,
Oracle is usually the database of choice.
Oracle's relational database was the world's first to support
the Structured Query Language (SQL), now an industry standard.
When CEO Lawrence J. Ellison and a few associates formed
Oracle in 1977, they were out to prove wrong the prevailing
theory that relationship databases could not be commercially
viable. Today, as proof of their success, they've parlayed
an initial $2,000 investment in the company into an annual
revenue exceeding $9.7 billion.
Oracle targets high-end workstations and minicomputers as
the server platforms on which to run its database systems.
Along with Sun Microsystems, Oracle has long been a champion
of network computers. It now boasts that it was the world's
first software company to develop and deploy 100 percent
Internet-enabled enterprise software across its entire product
line: database, server, enterprise business applications,
and application development and decision support tools.
Many Fortune 500 companies depend on Oracle to run their
businesses. Some of Oracle's features that have helped make
it so successful are:
Portability - Oracle can run on a large number of hardware/software
Improved Web Development - Oracle8i has many new features
that make it easier to develop Web-based applications, which
in turn are easier for end-users to access.
Parallel Server Support - Oracle can be used in a parallel
server configuration (used to distribute the load placed
on the database by high demand).
Sophisticated Backup and Recovery - Oracle offers a high
degree of reliability in backing up the database and recovering
information stored in the database when a failure occurs.
Development and CASE Tools - Oracle has a wide collection
of development tools and CASE tools that work well with
the back-end database.
Trusted Oracle - In critically sensitive and confidential
environments, Oracle offers a high degree of security.
Oracle Products: Oracle has a wide variety of products
that work with the Oracle Database Server. Examples range
from CASE tools, such as Designer 2000, to Office Automation
Tools, such as Oracle Office.
Developer/2000, Discoverer, SQL*Plus are front-end tools
to develop sophisticated applications. Oracle Financials,
Oracle Manufacturing, and Oracle HR are enterprise resource
planning (ERP) solutions for finance, manufacturing, and
human resource functions respectively. Designer2000 is a
CASE tool for Data modeling as well as generating fully
developed applications. SQL* Loader, Server Manager, Enterprise
manager, and Import/export are tools and utilities to assist
