Speculation of release date for Oracle 11g

December 23, 2005

With 2006 approaching fast, some Oracle experts are already speculating about the next new release of Oracle.  If we look historically, we will be "due" for a new release of the Oracle database in early 2007, in just 15 months:

Oracle tries to make a major release every three to four years and Oracle has been remarkably consistent with their release dates:

Release Release Date Elapsed years
Oracle 6 1988  
Oracle 7 1992 4
Oracle 8 1997 5
Oracle 8i 1998 1
Oracle 9i 2001 3
Oracle 10g 2004 3
Oracle 11g 2007 3

Oracle has remarkable predictability of release dates with a new major release every 3.16 years:


Based on a trend graph, Oracle 11g (or whatever it's new name may be) is due about April 2007, but it most likely coincide with Oracle OpenWorld 2007, held in the fall of 2007 (usually in San Francisco):

Mark Rittman notes this prediction eloquently in his popular data warehouse/BI blog:

"surely the first bits of news starting to emerge in late 2006 about the next, 11g release of the Oracle Database. "
