M arketing Management is the leading marketing text because its content and organization
consistently reflect changes in marketing theory and practice. The very first
edition of Marketing Management, published in 1967, introduced the concept that
companies must be customer-and-market driven. But there was little mention of what have
now become fundamental topics such as segmentation, targeting, and positioning.

This chapter acknowledges the challenges you face as a database administrator and
states how Enterprise Manager can help you meet these challenges.
In Oracle Database, the OracleJVM has a new memory model for sessions that connect
to the database through a dedicated server. Since a session using a dedicated server is
guaranteed to use the same process for every database call, the Process Global Area is
used for session specific memory and object allocations. This means that some of the
objects and resources that used to be reclaimed at the end of each call can now live

A major U.S. interexchange carrier needs to verify the accuracy of
its asset-management database.
As a test, conduct a network and inventory audit on a ”typical”
office in the Midwest.
Utilizing a detailed site-assessment process, ADC found more than
235 discrepancies, including pieces of removed equipment that
were included in the asset-management database. ADC provided a
complete and detailed inventory as well as recommendations to
optimize performance at this site....
Spatial database management deals with the storage, indexing, and querying of data with spatial
features, such as location and geometric extent. The field emerged from Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) applications, from which it became apparent
that there is a need for the efficient management of large-scale spatial data. More recently, Location
Based Services (LBS) brought spatial data management needs to common users, who routinely run
spatial queries on their computers or mobile devices.
After completing this lesson, you should be able to do the following:

Identify tuning goals
Identify common tuning problems
Employ tuning activities during developmentand production
Balance performance and safety trade-offs
The database we are releasing today is an updated version of the one we used for the original
report. It has been a work-in-progress, and we have further refined it as we have obtained
additional details. In particular, we uncovered new information for many of the 919 cases,
including details about initial announcement dates and the reasons for the restatements. We
performed analyses with the new information and determined that the new data resulted in
only minor changes to the effects and trends we had initially reported. ...

Naming Methods: Overview

Host naming: Enables users in a TCP/IP environment to resolve names through their existing name resolution service
Local naming: Locates network addresses by using information configured and stored on each individual client's tnsnames.
The extension of national accounts to cover
economic natural assets and their services
(incorporated into commodities) is important but
cannot deliver a sufficiently complete vision of
the interaction of people and nature. For example,
an enterprise holding and managing a forest will
know and care about trees and timber, but much
less about 'non-timber forest values', or forest water
regulating functions and micro-climate effects which
may be highly important for other sectors of society
and for biodiversity.
Granting and denying access to the a database is crucial for a secure network
environment. You can configure access control through a firewall or on the database.
For firewall support, you can configure Oracle Connection Manager to function as a
firewall, whereby it grants or denies clients access to a particular database service or a
computer based on a set of filtering rules. For the database, you can configure access
control parameters in the sqlnet.ora file to specify that clients using a particular
protocol are allowed or denied access....

With the release of the .NET Framework, Microsoft is taking the most significant risk
in its history. Microsoft has spent billions of dollars, representing over 80 percent
its R&D budget, on designing and constructing this fundamental shift in its development
tools in order to build a framework for the future of application development. Microsoft
has effectively realized its vision of Windows in every PC and a PC on every desktop.
In July 2008 Microsoft released the first version of the ADO.NET Entity Framework as part of the Visual
Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 as well as the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1. At the time, Microsoft LINQ
(Language Integrated Query) and LINQ to SQL had been out for a while and were gaining a lot of
