ORACLE DESIGNER TO WORK WITH RIVAL DATABASES

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle Corp has decided to upgrade its Designer/2000 and Developer/2000 application development tools to support Sybase Inc’s System 11, Microsoft Corp’s SQL Server, Informix Software Inc’s Online Dynamic Server and Rdb, the ex-Digital Equipment Corp relational database it now owns, reports Unigram.X. The multi-database versions of the tools, version 2.0 of each, will see the light of day in the second quarter of the year. Designer/2000 is Oracle’s computer-aided systems engineering tool that programmers use to map out business processes and the data flow between them. The tool then feeds into Developer/2000 to generate an application. Oracle thinks it can increase its tools revenue by 25% this year. Why buy tools from Oracle if you don’t have their database? Oracle believes the main market will be large organizations that have a spread of databases, and isn’t attempting to brand itself as a database- independent tools player a la Powersoft. The company’s Visual Basic clone PowerObjects is not thought to have done as well as expected.
