Interesting new features include hot patching, an audit vault for compliance, new approaches to encryption, pumped up data compression and more focus on security up and down the technology. Moreover, DBAs are getting more involved in enterprise and information architecture. Of course, the best place to learn more about what your colleagues make of these developments will be at COLLABORATE 07 in Las Vegas this April. In the October issue of Database Trends and Applications magazine, we interviewed Oracle vice president Rick Schultz who explains more about Oracle's Fusion middleware efforts.
