ODBMS Industry Watch Blog Launched
ODBMS.ORG, a vendor-independent non-profit group of high-profile software experts
lead by Prof. Roberto Zicari, today announced that it has expanded their offerings
to provide more casual and frequent as well as opinionated news posts by launching
the "The ODBMS Industry Watch" blog.
The ODBMS blog complements the
ODBMS Forum and a wide range of offerings on object databases, featured in
its introduction section, a comprehensive free download section, a book store,
vendor listing as well as an expert
section with latest, dedicated articles on ODBMS.
With only a week to go to its second anniversary, ODBMS.ORG is only 3 names short
to list 100 internationally recognized experts on
ODBMS technology, who are the root cause of the tremendous success of the
portal, which more than 10,000 unique visitors visit every month to learn about
the latest trend in this industry segment.
In his new blog, editor Prof. Roberto Zicari
muses about latest trends in the industry. He also continued his exclusive series
"10 Questions On Innovation", which has been transferred to the blog and amended
new episode with Ivar Jacobson, fathers of components and component architecture,
use cases, modern business engineering, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and
the Rational Unified Process (RUP).
"After having introduced components at Ericsson it took ten years before the company
knew it had created history in the telecom space," recalls Jacobsen bitterly, when
asked whether he had to pay a price to be an innovator. "In the mean time I was
demoted and recommended to leave the company. The recommendation was given by my
boss who later became the president of Ericsson."
The portal also welcomes two new members to ODBMS.ORG's
panel of experts:
ODBMS.ORG (www.odbms.org) is a vendor-independent, not-for-profit educational program
on object database technology and the integration between object-oriented programming
and databases. Designed by Prof. Roberto Zicari of Frankfurt University, the program's
goal is to promote and further the use of object databases - by offering free resources
for students, faculty and researchers at universities and research centers, as well
as for JAVA and .NET developers in the commercial and the open source world. Content
is provided by a panel of internationally recognized experts, who share research
articles and teaching materials with the community via the organization's Web portal.
