OracleWorld.jpgAnother cool customer story from Oracle Open World. R.L. Polk has been working with Oracle to solve a bunch of challenges including the ability to enhance customer facing applications as well as enterprise wide application delivery. They have Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g as a central system management and monitoring solution for its Oracle Grid Computing environment including databases, application servers, hosts and storage.

I spoke with Doug Miller, Database Director at R.L. Polk, he's a very passionate customer of Oracle's and has done some great things with the technology. The company has been delivering automotive market information to the industry for over 75 years so they have seen it all from a technology growth standpoint. While business needs drove Polk to find new ways to solve problems they were able to do the project partially because of the aggressive ways Oracle is now addressing licencing and product bundling. In short they needed to spread 5 terabytes across a grid to provide support for customer facing delivery and other applications and have found a whole new level of flexibility that now allows their systems to run at much faster speeds and provided them a platform to support an SOA architecture

Doug was a blast to chat with and I highly recommend reading the case study linked here.
