Oracle's Challenge

Oracle faces many hurdles integrating its acquisitions, and it's taking them one at a time. The latest: merging the TimesTen in-memory, real-time database it acquired in June more tightly with its own relational database. With in-memory database systems, both the database and the data it's managing reside in a server's memory rather than on a disk, making them faster than other types of databases.

But integration is complicated. One improvement still to be made is getting TimesTen to recognize and use Oracle's modified SQL query language, called PL/SQL. Many applications written for Oracle's database use PL/ SQL.
