 Oracle Database solution for a Newspaper ?

I'm in the process of trying to find a data base solution for my company, a
newspaper.  We need a database that will allow us to store information on
our atricles, search, and eventually be able to be linked to our web page so
that we may allow the public to search our database of news articles as
well.  I'm really not sure what direction to go with this, or what type of
solution I'm looking for.  We are a medium sized newspaper and our current
system is with a company called Media Stream, but the system is antiquated
and we'd want to convert the old info to the new system.  If you have any
tips or ideas in this area, they would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Tracy

Hi,
an Oracle DB would be a good solution for a newspaper. You can store
articles in blob fields that can be really big and make a full text research
on the article using the context option of the oracle DB.

DB2 UDB also provides great features for Large objects, BLOBs etc, where you
can store all multimedia files, articles etc.
I feel this is a great choice.
thanks

Go to http://www.software.ibm.com/is/dig-lib/ and take a look at IBM's Digital
Library.

A full object database may also be appropriate to your requirements, if
you are flexible about the type of DBMS. Many vendors links can be
found at http://www.odmg.org/.

I work for Computer Associates and have worked with Jasmine:

The product has been used in many web-based multimedia applications.
Some examples here:

Text searching is also provided by add-ins from well-known companies,
such as Verity:

I can point you to a system which you should at least look at. Even if
it's more featured and robust than you need, it would serve as a good
yardstick for what's possible. Look at www.autonomy.com. They make both
an intranet and an Internet product built around the core technology. The
system essentially imbibes all your content, "understands" it in a very
sophisticated although strictly mathematical way, and automates the
process of getting the right information in front of the right users. In
the most basic form it can automatically hyperlink all articles/documents
to the articles/documents they are most closely related to. It also sets
up profiles for users, understanding the kind of content they care about
and linking them to content that is both related to what they're reading
at the moment *and* the sort of content they have demonstrated in
interest in. The system can also apply this learning and pattern-matching
to traditional keyword/phrase searching. Autonomy will automatically
catalog, sort, link and distribute every bit of your internal and
external content. Very cool. If we were 5 times as big as we are, I'd
lobby hard for a purchase.

Luck,
Dan
