Industry: Software -- Object Relational Database
 Management System (ORDBMS)

Company description: Omniscience develops and markets Omniscience Object-Relational Database Management System (ORDBMS), a production quality object and relational database that is robust in functionality, light weight, supports native SQL, and complies to standards for today's Windows applications. Omniscience is the first vendor in the industry to offer the ability to handle interoperability across different language interfaces, notably seamless interoperability of data between SQL and object databases in a single Windows program. Omniscience ORDBMS is currently shipping on Windows 3.1 (16-bit), Windows NT (32-bit), and Solaris.

Product Features Robust ORDBMS

A developer will find it easy to make C/C++ objects persistent with database functionality that supports: sophisticated caching, robust rollback and crash recovery, powerful query capability, intelligent database compaction, b-tree and hash indexes, and enhanced performance.

Light Weight

Omniscience ORDBMS is based on an efficient and compact object kernel that is a light weight DBMS with a very small footprint. In general, Omniscience ORDBMS operates comfortably on machines with small configurations, such as notebook computers running Microsoft Windows.


Omniscience is the first to support both the object-oriented C++ language binding defined in the ODMG-93 standard, and SQL standards including ANSI SQL-92, and ODBC 2.0


The Omniscience ORDBMS supports both relational and object database models. So the user's existing applications can be readily ported without a paradigm shift, while their new applications can be built with a paradigm best suited for the complexity and access pattern of the data to be managed.


Omniscience Object Technology, Inc. was founded in 1992 by Dr. Hong-Tai Chou. Omniscience is a privately held company with its headquarters located in Santa Clara, California.
