    News Facts

--  Gartner, Inc. has named Oracle as a Leader in its "Magic Quadrant for
    Data Warehouse Database Management Systems." (1)
--  Gartner's Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular
    quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
--  According to Gartner, vendors in the Leaders quadrant, "demonstrate
    the greatest support for data warehouses of all sizes, with large
    numbers of concurrent users and management of mixed data warehousing
    workloads. These vendors lead in data warehousing by consistently
    demonstrating customer satisfaction and strong support, as well as
    longevity in the data warehouse DBMS market, with strong hardware
    alliances. Hence, Leaders also represent the lowest risk for data
    warehouse implementations, in relation to, among other things,
    performance as mixed workloads, database sizes and complexity
    increase. Additionally, the market's maturity demands that Leaders
    maintain a strong vision for the key trends of the past year:
    mixed-workload management for end-user service-level satisfaction and
    data volume management. Finally, Leaders have the ability to align
    their messaging, product placement and pricing models to support both
    traditional data warehousing practices and emerging practices for
    distributed processing, data virtualization, metadata management and
    dynamic optimization, which are essential for the logical data
    warehouse and big data to become the 'new normal.' Importantly, with
    so many Leaders aligned with our current criteria, the scale of
    differentiation will shift even more strongly in coming years toward
    combining structured and unstructured analytics, support for external
    files and processing, and the ability to support a diverse set of
    end-user applications via metadata and performance auditing and
--  The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is at the core of Oracle's data
    warehouse offering that also includes components such as Oracle
    Database, Oracle Advanced Analytics, Oracle OLAP, Oracle Big Data
    Appliance and industry-specific Data Models. Together, these solutions
