Fifteen years after the release of Oracle8i and the capability to store large volumes of unstructured data in the database was introduced, the debate still continues today about the best location for storing it. Should it be the file system or the database? This seminar will address both issues and offer a future direction for all sites to follow regarding this controversial topic.

The session also includes live demos for some advanced and interesting scenarios, and shows how to query relevant data dictionary views.
