A common theme in my 30 years of using Oracle technology is that people love to label any and all things Oracle as "cool tech but way too expensive". But this argument is a reflection of a very dated view of Oracle, because times have changed. Nowadays there is a plethora of tools, platforms and initiatives provided by Oracle that are 100% free to …

Login to a customer's Oracle Database and there are all sorts of permutations of how tablespaces are being used. Sometimes there is one giant tablespace for everything. Other times there are multiple tablespaces for different schemas, or different object types. The thinking on how tablespaces should be used has evolved over many years, and in this …

Series 3 brings 2023 to a close with a festive special that reaches the parts that other festive specials don't reach... 3D programmable tree lights, the real reason people kiss under the mistletoe and a disappointingly bleak Laboratory Christmas Party take us into the new year with more detail than anyone could possibly need or want.

There's a reason we don't just lump all of our data into Excel, Word and other such tools. Databases exist to give rigour to our data. They are the "statement of record" - the proof that our applications are meeting any business and/or regulatory requirements. The data stored in the database is typically the evidence that we provide to auditors and…

If you are the only person using a PC, then the concept of having to lock information is totally foreign, because all of the data is yours and yours alone. But databases were built for the multi-user world, where concurrent access to the data is the norm. To handle this, we sometimes need to lock the data to ensure it is controlled and updated in a…
