ORACLE (teletext) - Oracle on View

Between 1983 and 1989, Channel 4 broadcast pages from the ORACLE service on air. Shown in 15 minute bursts, and alternating with 4-Tel on View and showings of the ETP-1 testcard, the pages were seen during the day when Channel 4 was not broadcasting actual programmes. Initially, the pages shown were from one aspect of the ORACLE service with the subject matter changing every so often. In September 1987, Oracle on View became a news service, adopting this format at the same time that Channel 4 expanded its broadcast hours to accommodate the transfer of ITV Schools to Channel 4. Oracle on View ended when Channel 4 started broadcasting breakfast television.

Oracle Corporation - Oracle and SAP

On July 3, 2007, SAP admitted that TomorrowNow employees had made "inappropriate downloads" from the Oracle support website. However, it claims that SAP personnel and SAP customers had no access to Oracle intellectual property via TomorrowNow. SAP's CEO Henning Kagermann stated that "Even a single inappropriate download is unacceptable from my perspective. We regret very much that this occurred." Additionally, SAP announced that it had "instituted changes" in TomorrowNow's operational oversight.

Oracle Corporation - Oracle and SAP

Oracle Corporation would resort to a similar strategy, by advising SAP customers to get "OFF SAP" (a play on the words of the acronym for its middleware platform "Oracle Fusion for SAP"), and also by providing special discounts on licenses and services to SAP customers who chose Oracle Corporation products.

Oracle NoSQL Database - Oracle Database

Random oracle - Random Oracle Hypothesis

Although the Baker–Gill–Solovay theorem showed that there exists an oracle A such that P A = NP A, subsequent work by Bennett and Gill, showed that for a random oracle B (a function from {0,1} n to {0,1} such that each input element maps to each of 0 or 1 with probability 1/2, independently of the mapping of all other inputs), P B ⊊ NP B with probability 1. Similar separations, as well as the fact that random oracles separate classes with probability 0 or 1 (as a consequence of the Kolmogorov's zero–one law), led to the creation of the Random Oracle Hypothesis, that two "acceptable" complexity classes C 1 and C 2 are equal if and only if they are equal (with probability 1) under a random oracle (the acceptability of a complexity class is defined in BG81 ). This hypothesis was later shown to be false, as the two acceptable complexity classes IP and PSPACE were shown to be equal despite IP A ⊊ PSPACE A for a random oracle A with probability 1.

Oracle Corporation - Oracle and SAP

On November 23, 2010, a U.S. district court jury in Oakland, California found that SAP AG must pay Oracle Corp $1.3 billion for copyright infringement, awarding damages that could be the largest-ever for copyright infringement. While admitting liability, SAP estimated the damages at no more than $40 million, while Oracle claimed that they are at least $1.65 billion. The awarded amount is one of the 10 or 20 largest jury verdicts in U.S. legal history. SAP said they were disappointed by the verdict and might appeal. On September 1, 2011, a federal judge overturned the judgment and offered a reduced amount or a new trial, calling Oracle's original award "grossly" excessive. Oracle chose a new trial.

Oracle Clusterware - Oracle Clusterware Components

Oracle Clusterware is the software which enables the nodes to communicate with each other, allowing them to form the cluster of nodes which behaves as a single logical server. Oracle Clusterware is run by Cluster Ready Services (CRS) consisting of two key components: Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR), which records and maintains the cluster and node membership information; voting disk, which polls for consistent heartbeat information from all the nodes when the cluster is running, and acts as a tiebreaker during communication failures.

Oracle Corporation - Oracle and SAP

SAP recognized that Oracle had started to become a competitor in a market where SAP had the leadership, and saw an opportunity to lure in customers from those companies that Oracle Corporation had acquired.
