Oracle 11g

Object: 36
Date of origin: 2007
Author/inventor/context: Oracle Corporation
The Oracle 11g relational database, the latest version of the relational databases produced by Oracle Corporation since 1977, pervades commercial, business and government life. The device aggregates business logics, physical and organisational architectures, and practices of security, transaction, identity, sharing and management, amidst an opulent array of options, adds-ons, interfaces and modules. Perhaps more than any of the 100 or so currently available relational databases, Oracle 11g sprawls across media, corporations and bureaucracies, queuing events, reports, decisions and value chains into pools of writing and reading processes.
