Oracle Database 23c Beta includes a new approach for addressing the object-relational mismatch for application developers
Enhancements to APEX low-code application development provide a better native mobile user experienceOracle CloudWorld, Las Vegas—October 18, 2022
Oracle today announced Oracle Database 23c Beta, the latest version of the world’s leading converged database, supporting all data types, workloads, and development styles. Oracle Database 23c, code named “App Simple,” focuses on simplifying applications and development. Many additional innovations across Oracle’s database services and products portfolio extend Oracle’s leadership in performance, security, and availability for mission-critical workloads.
“Modern applications are built using new types of data such as JSON and Graph, new types of analytics such as machine learning, and new development styles such as microservices. The breadth and depth of data technologies used by modern applications can make developing and running apps increasingly complex,” said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, mission-critical database technologies, Oracle. “Oracle Database 23c ‘App Simple’ introduces game changing new technologies that make it dramatically easier to develop and run these modern apps.”
To enhance data protection for mission-critical Oracle Database services on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), Oracle also announced Oracle Database Zero Data Loss Autonomous Recovery Service, enabling organizations to address the challenges of ransomware, outages, and human errors more effectively. In addition, Oracle introduced Oracle Full Stack Disaster Recovery Service which allows customers to configure, monitor, and manage the disaster recovery process for the full stack of technologies used to build applications—including middleware, databases, networks, storage, and compute from the OCI console.
“JSON Relational Duality in Oracle Database 23c brings substantial simplicity and flexibility to modern app dev,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president, Data Management Software, IDC. “It addresses the age-old object—relational mismatch problem, offering an option for developers to pick the best storage and access formats needed for each use case without having to worry about data structure, data mapping, data consistency, or performance tuning. No other specialized document databases offer such a revolutionary solution.”
“With over 300 new features and enhancements, including JSON Relational Duality, Operational Graphs, Microservices support, real-time machine learning and support for new data types, the next generation Oracle Database 23c is poised to gain app developer mindshare and make it extremely simple to develop and run data-driven mission-critical apps,” said Holger Mueller, vice president and principal analyst, Constellation Research. “Clearly Oracle has delivered on the ‘App Simple’ code name of its latest Database 23c, and it’ll undoubtedly be a ‘must see’ debut at CloudWorld.”
“Oracle Database 23c more than lives up to its code name—App Simple—by taking application development to unprecedented levels of task reduction, simplification, and automation,” said Marc Staimer, senior analyst, Wikibon. “Oracle Database 23c definitively ends the long running ‘relational vs. document’ debate with JSON Relational Duality delivering the best of both worlds. Data is stored as rows in relational format, while data can be accessed as JSON formats. Developers can operate on the same data without having to worry about data structure, data mapping, data consistency, or performance tuning.”
