Some times in August 1987 Oracle started there Oracle Applications division, a group focusing and building business management software closely integrated with there own database software.

The First “Oracle Application ”Product Launched

Sometime in August 1988 they released there first ERP application called accounting system that has only general Ledger functionality enabled. This is one of the reason of having General ledger application_id is 101.Intresting..

i-era/Dot com Time

The year 1997-98, the attention was primininlly focused on Internet, which already takes off in Information Technology sometime back. The concept of thin client was a baby at that time. This year oracle strategy shifts toward the internet and browser based development. The middle of year oracle launched and shipped there 11i product which was armed with 8i database, with lot many new features.
