Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c
I was joking with someone just the other day about what letter they were going to use for Oracle 12, and suggested perhaps C is for Cloud.
Careful what you wish for... this statement accompanied the press release:
Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c is the first product in Oracle’s portfolio numbered “12c” where the “c” stands for Oracle’s significant investments in delivering cloud-ready products
This of course follows
8i - Internet
10g - Grid
It already makes me wonder - what is going to be the next big thing in 5 years time. One suggestion:
"M" - Mobile. Yes, mobile technology is ubiquitous now - and that's what cloud technology is all about, but what's Oracle going to do with it? Whack some specially designed database on your latest octo-core, 8GB RAM, post-SSD mobile device?
People like Tim Hall will have you thinking Oracle will come out with something like 13OGC, or some cleverly branded acronym/mnemonic...
What pace our technological world grows in, huh?!
