Oracle Corp announced database management system support via TCP/IP communications for Apple Computer, Sun Microsystems, Apollo Computer workstations, and for the generality of Xenix based machines. Oracle also announced a co-operation agreement with IntelliCorp to market and help in the development of its artificial intelligence products. Oracle also mapped out its Unix strategy, describing plans in the area of transaction processing performance, networking and user interfaces. It announced new support for bit-mapped displays, particularly for the Unix workstation market. The company also announced a co operative marketing program with IntelliCorp of Mountain View, California, to join forces on development and marketing of IntelliCorp’s artificial intelligence products, KEE Connection and IntelliScope, for use as an expert front-ends to Oracle’s SQL-based database management system. Bruce Cleveland, Oracle’s Unix product line director said at the show Oracle’s main visibility has been in VAX/VMS and IBM mainframe environments, and now we are gaining equal exposure in the dynamic Unix marketplace. Oracle’s Unix strategy includes aggressive pricing, packaging and promotions at the low end of the Unix/Xenix market as well as an upcoming major breakthrough in performance and functionality for the Unix high-end transaction processing market. The company has, in the last few months, announced specially priced and configured versions of Oracle on Xenix and AT&T 3B2 systems for resellers and application developers. Oracle said of its forthcoming on-line transaction processing technology that it will redefine the realm of possible performance in that segment of the Unix market and added that its early performance measurements indicate that superminis, such as the VAX 8650 running Ultrix, will be able to process dozens of database transactions per second. Intellicorp, meanwhile, announced a prototype of its Knowledge Engineering Environment for 80386-based machines under Unix.
