Young Enterprise, a voluntary group established to encourage young people to take an interest in business, has upgraded its membership systems to an Oracle database to manage its operations until at least 2010.
Graham Plater, IT manager at Young Enterprise, said that before turning to Oracle the organisation had been struggling with a mix of Microsoft Access and SQL systems that were not integrated. The systems were also slow to keep the organisation's website information up to date, since updates could only be run overnight.
The Oracle 10g system, which runs on Dell Poweredge dual-processor servers and a Linux operating system, was supplied free of charge by Oracle and is intended to handle Young Enterprise's member database, as the group looks to boost its membership to one million over the next few years.
