Dear ORAWORLD Readers

The eighteenth edition of our e-magazine ORAWORLD is out now!

The last issue of this decade (our next issue #19 will be released in early February 2020) comes packed with a lot of interesting articles and stories from the Oracle cosmos.

Self-Service Integration is becoming more and more important in many areas. In his article, Arturo Viveros, Oracle ACE and Groundbreaker Ambassador from Mexico, gives a great overview of the topic, explains why you should consider this concept and how it works.

This issue also marks the start of a new series by APEX expert Carsten Czarski. Part one is called “Low Code with the Database” and gives you an introduction to APEX – a great read not just for starters. Look forward to many more parts to come!

Meanwhile our frequent contributors Ravi Kumar and Mari Kupatadze look back on a “Decade of Innovation” diving into the history of Oracle Exadata and looking at the latest features that came with OpenWorld 2019.

ORAWORLD team member Heli reflects on her experiences during this year’s Groundbreakers EMEA Tour which had stops in six cities in October.

To make ORAWORLD even better in the next decade we are planning to expand our great team. If you wish to become a team member or a frequent contributor, feel free to contact us at
