A New Look: Does something look different about this issue of Oracle Magazine? It should: we've updated the magazine to make it more relevant and user friendly. Our redesigned publication has a new masthead and fresher look. We've improved internal navigation and added multiple pointers on each page, highlighting relevant Web content, downloads, and podcasts.
In addition, we've expanded our technology section to include content on system administration and Java, and we've categorized technology content by job role, helping you find relevant content more quickly. We've also added a short MashUp department in the Up Front section of the magazine, offering information on technology trends and gadgets—as well as business notes—in an easy-to-digest format. We hope you benefit from the new design and content. We look forward to your feedback.
