Oracle Open World will once more dominate hall 5. The enterprise software giant has brought its business partners together to offer visitors a range of solutions based on the Oracle platform.

The five day-trade show will also offer the region its first glance at Oracle's latest database technology - 10G. Until the launch of 10G in mid-September, Oracle is keeping quiet about its key features.

"We have been remaining silent about the forthcoming launch of 10g," says Ayman Abouseif, senior director of marketing, Oracle Eastern Central Europe, Middle East & Africa. "Although we can't discuss the details, we can say that there are a lot of new features in this version of the database. There is also a major focus on Linux clustering," he adds.

Oracle is planning to host a number of seminars on 10G over the course of the show to familiarise partners and end users about the database's new features. "We're starting the educational process at Gitex before we start shipping 10G from the start of December," comments Abouseif.

The software giant is also planning to introduce a host of other new technologies at the show, including an upgraded version of the 11i E-Business Suite and version 2 of Collaboration Suite, which made its Gitex debut last year. Oracle's upgraded unified messaging platform includes improved Arabic language support and functionality.
