Oracle Database is the first database designed for enterprise grid computing, the most flexible and cost effective way to manage information and applications.
Enterprise grid computing creates large pools of industry-standard, modular storage and servers. With this architecture, each new system can be rapidly provisioned from the pool of components. There is no need for peak workloads because capacity can be easily added or reallocated from the resource pools as needed.
Oracle Database is an RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism, and is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
BA Insight’s Oracle Database connector is built upon industry standard database access methods, so it can equally support databases from other systems such as Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, and IBM DB2.
The Oracle Database Connector honors the security of source database, and it provides both full and incremental crawls so the users have the latest information available to them all the time.
Our Oracle Database Connector for SharePoint is standard, off the shelf software that addresses the following requirements:
1Indexes every desired item with a very high throughput. Many Oracle databases have millions of rows, making high throughput critical to the success of the implementation.
2Minimizes the impact on the source system through views or stored procedures as necessary, ensuring no impact to its performance.
3Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see, even if the security configuration is custom designed.
4Works with all types of data.
5Works with custom tables, documents, attachments, BLOB, CLOB, and BFILE data.
6The source system retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers). If applicable to the database being crawled, users click on a search result and are taken to their original item or document.
Future-proof your investment for new SharePoint versions and O365
With each successive version of SharePoint, Microsoft extends its core capabilities, and the same is true of new releases of the Oracle Database. BA Insight does the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both Oracle Database and SharePoint. In addition, the Oracle Database Connector also supports O365 through Cloud SSA and current versions of SharePoint on premise including 2010, 2013, and 2016.
The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release and installing and configuring it. Or, if desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
