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 Tutorials, 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 by a 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.
