I am very open minded to all Technologies and I think every software
professional will benefit from being open to technologies.

I have been unable to convince myself that an UV Brings any kind of
value for the below in an OLTP Environment.

1. Advanced Level Software Development.
2. Performance
3. Scalability etc

Nested tables (Big Feature for UV) is not something new, most relational
databases accommodate this feature at a much higher level.

IF BIG THREE Databases (DB2/ORACLE/MSSQL) was poor on ROI...
Why would 75% of the worlds Corporations depend on such databases?

Can you Name One BIG Fortune 100 that totally relies on UV?

I have heard stories where several corporations migrated to RDBMS, 
Never heard any LARGE Corp(Hershey, GE, BOfA etc) switch to UV/MVDBMS.

Never seen any Enterprise Software (SAP, PeopleSoft etc) mention UV on
their Web Sites.... Never seen a book on UV OR PICK at Barnes & Nobles.

Perhaps you can explain where UV plays an Important Role.
