Oracle Groundbreakers Podcast

Database Golden Rules: When (and Why) to Break Them

January 16, 2019

American inventor Thomas Edison, once said, “Hell, there are no rules here. We're trying to accomplish something.”

What we hope to accomplish with this episode of the Groundbreaker Podcast is an exploration of the idea that the evolution in today’s architectures makes it advantageous, perhaps even necessary, to challenge some long-established concepts that have achieved “golden rule” status as they apply to the use of databases.

Does ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability) still carry as much weight? In today’s environments, how much do rigorous data integrity enforcement, data normalization, and data freshness matter? This program explores those and other questions.

Bringing their insight and expertise to this discussion are three recognized IT professionals who regularly wrestle with balancing the rules with innovation. If you’ve struggled with that same balancing act, you’ll want to listen to this program.
