Oracle announced Yodlee, the platform for global financial innovation, is successfully using the Oracle Database Appliance to support its international growth requirements.

With more than 800 customers and 50 million users of Yodlee-powered services across 10 different countries using its financial platform, Yodlee needed a data management solution to help meet its expanding customer base and international privacy and regulatory requirements.
