RE: Temporal Databases

Temporal databases are time enabled databases. This does have overlap to
Oracle flashback query but it is mostly used in data warehouse reference
where database has columns like effective_start_date, effective_end_date
so that snapshot as of certain point in time can be constructed.

Nope, not a Star Trek - Voyager reference though it sounds like one, but
something that our CEO was asked about by a customer. I have to confess
to never having heard the term. Other than FlashBack Query/Data Archive
has anyone any experience/understanding of this term as it relates to
